Identity Manager 8.0 - Application Roles Administration Guide

Define Inheritance Exclusion for Application Roles

Define Inheritance Exclusion for Application Roles

It is possible that employees cannot own certain system roles at the same time. Thus, for example, exception approvers for rule violations may not be rule supervisors at the same time. You can specify mutually exclusive (conflicting) application roles to achieve this behavior. Then you cannot assign these application roles to the same person anymore.

NOTE: Only system roles, which are defined directly as conflicting application roles cannot be assigned to the same employee. Definitions made on parent or child application roles do not effect the assignment.

To define conflicting application roles

  • Set the configuration parameter "QER\Structures\ExcludeStructures" in the Designer and compile the database.

To define conflicting application roles

  1. Select the category One Identity Manager administration.
  2. Select a category in the navigation view.
  3. Select the application role in the result list for which you want to define conflicting application roles.
  4. Select Edit conflicting application roles in the task view.
  5. Assign the application roles that are mutually exclusive to the selected application role in Add assignments.

    - OR -

    Remove the application roles that are no longer mutually exclusive in Remove assignments.

  6. Save the changes.
