Modifying IT Operating Data

Modifying IT Operating Data

If IT operating data changes, you must transfer these changes to the existing user accounts. To do this, templates must be rerun on the affected columns. Before you can run the templates, you can check what the effect of a change to the IT operating data has on the existing user accounts. You can decide whether the change is transferred to the database in the case of each affected column in each affected database.


  • The IT operating data of a business role was changed.

    - OR -

  • The default values in the IT operating data template were modified for an account definition.

NOTE: If the assignment of an employee to a primary business role changes, the templates are automatically executed.

To execute the template

  1. Select the category <target system type> | Basic configuration data | Account definitions | Account definitions.

  2. Select an account definition in the result list.
  3. Select Execute templates in the task view

    This displays a list of all user account, which are created through the selected account definition and whose properties are changed by modifying the IT operating data.

    Old value Current value of the object property.
    New value Value applied to the object property after modifying the IT operating data.
    Selection Specifies whether the modification is applied to the user account.
  4. Mark all the object properties in the selection column that will be given the new value.
  5. Click Apply.

    The templates are applied to all selected user accounts and properties.

Additional Tasks for Managing Business Roles

After you have entered the master data, you can apply different tasks to it. The task view contains different forms with which you can run the following tasks. You can find the most important information on the overview form.

Creating Dynamic Roles

Use this task to define dynamic roles for individual business roles. Dynamic roles are used to specify role memberships dynamically. Employees, devices or workdesks are not permanently assigned to a role, just when they fulfill certain conditions. A check is performed regularly to assess which employees (devices or workdesks) fulfill these conditions. The means the role memberships change dynamically. For example, company resources can be assigned dynamically to all employees in a business role in this way; if an employee leaves the department they immediately lose the resources assigned to them.

Dynamic roles always relate to the secondary role assignment of an employee object. Therefore secondary assignment of employees, devices and workdesks to role classes must be permitted. If necessary, further configuration settings need to be made. For more information, see Permit Assignments of Employees, Devices, Workdesks and Company Resources.

NOTE: The task Create dynamic role is only available for business roles, which do not have the option Dynamic roles not allowed set.

To create a dynamic role

  1. Select the category Business roles | <Role class>.
  2. Select a business role in the result list.
  3. Select Create dynamic role in the task view.
  4. Enter the required master data.
  5. Save the changes.

To edit a dynamic role

  1. Select the category Business roles | <Role class> | Dynamic roles.
  2. Select a business role in the result list.
  3. Open the business role's overview form.
  4. Select the form element Dynamic roles and click on the dynamic role.
  5. Select Change master data in the task view.
  6. Edit the dynamic role's master data.
  7. Save the changes.

For more detailed information about creating and editing dynamic roles, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.
