Basics for Assigning Company Resources

You can assign company resources to employees, devices and workdesks in the One Identity Manager. You can use different assignments types to assign company resources.

Assignments types are:

Direct Assignment

Direct assignment of company resources results from the assignment of a company resource to an employee, device or a workdesk, for example. Direct assignment of company resources makes it easier to react to special requirements.

Indirect Assignment

In the case of indirect assignment of company resources, employees, devices and workdesks are arranged in departments, cost centers, locations, business roles or application roles. The total of assigned company resources for an employee, device or workdesk is calculated from the position within the hierarchies, the direction of inheritance (top-down or bottom-up) and the company resources assigned to these roles. In the Indirect assignment methods a difference between primary and secondary assignment is taken into account.

Secondary Assignment

You make a secondary assignment by classifying an employee, a device or a workdesk within a role hierarchy. Secondary assignment is the default method for assigning and inheriting company resources through roles. Specify on the role classes (department, location, cost center, business roles, application role) whether a secondary assignment of company resources to employees, device and workdesk is possible.
