Identity Manager 8.0 - Application Management Administration Guide

Assigning Applications to System Roles

Installed Module: System Roles Module

Use this task to individually group application packages for employees, workdesks and role. Employees and workdesks can obtain application packages directly or by inheriting them over company structures. It is also possible to request application packages through the IT Shop.

NOTE: Applications where the option Only use in IT Shop is set, can only be assigned to system roles that also have this option set. For more information, see the One Identity Manager System Roles Administration Guide.

To assign an application to system roles

  1. Select the category Software | Applications.
  2. Select the application in the result list.
  3. Select Assign system roles in the task view.
  4. Assign system roles in Add assignments.

    - OR -

    Remove system roles from Remove assignments.

  5. Save the changes.

When you assign a system role to employees, the applications are inherited by those employees.

Installation Order and Physical Software Dependencies

You can define the logical and physical dependencies of application in the One Identity Manager.

Logical Dependencies

You can define logical dependencies when you want to specify which applications should be additionally installed in association with an application installation. You can create an exclusion list of applications that should not be installed together on a workstation because of problems that may occur in functionality. This avoids installing two incompatible applications for a user.

To specify logical dependencies

  • Specify a parent application (higher-level) or child (lower-level) for the selected application using the task Define installation dependencies.
  • Specify the (conflicting) applications you want to exclude for a particular application using the task Define installation dependencies.
Physical Dependencies

Specify the physical dependencies when a particular installation sequence must be followed or when an application requires another application as installation prerequisite. This might be the case for patches or service packs, for example.

To specify physical dependencies

  1. First, specify the (parent) application on the form Define installation dependencies.
  2. This means that the dependency is set and the sort order can be calculated.
  3. Save the changes.
  4. Change to the details form using the context menu Extended properties.
  5. Set the option Installation prerequisites for dependency.

    This means that the required application must be installed before the selected application.

  6. Save the changes.

Assigning Extended Properties

Extended properties are meta objects that cannot be mapped directly in the One Identity Manager, for example, operating codes, cost codes or cost accounting areas.

To specify extended properties for an group

  1. Select the category Software | Applications.
  2. Select the application in the result list.
  3. Select Assign extended properties in the task view.
  4. Assign extended properties in Add assignments.

    The view- OR -

    Remove extended properties from Remove assignments.

  5. Save the changes.

For more detailed information about using extended properties, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

Deleting Applications

An application can only be deleted when it is no longer assigned to an employee, a workdesk or a business role.

To delete an application

  1. Select the category Software | Applications.
  2. Select the application in the result list.
  3. Delete the application.
  4. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.
