Determining an Employee‘s Language

In order for email notifications within the request process in the IT Shop or during attestation to be sent in the recipients language, the employee's language has to be determined.

  • States and countries and their languages already exist in the One Identity Manager default installation. Verify and edit this information in the Designer.
  • Add the country and state of the primary location to the primary department, the primary cost center, the primary business role or directly to the employee. To map special cases, you can also add the language directly to the location, department, cost center or employee.

An employee‘s language is determined in the following order:

  1. Language that is directly assigned to the employee.
  2. Language of the employee's state.
  3. Language of the employee's country.
  4. Language directly assigned to the employee's location.
  5. Language of the primary location's state.
  6. Language of the primary location's country.
  7. Language directly assigned to the employee's primary department.
  8. Language of the primary department's state.
  9. Language of the primary department's country.
  10. Language directly assigned to the employee's primary cost center.
  11. Language of the primary cost center's state.
  12. Language of the primary cost center's country.
  13. Language directly assigned to an employee's primary business role
  14. Language of the primary business role's state.
  15. Language of the primary business role's country.
  16. Fallback, in case the language could not be determined with this sequence:
    • Language is taken from the configuration parameter "Common\MailNotification\DefaultCulture"
    • Language "en-US"

Determining an Employee‘s Working Hours

An employee‘s working hours need to be made public in order to determine the reaction times of approvers or attestors to request processes in the IT Shop or during attestation.

  • States and countries and their time zones, public holidays and standard working hours already exist in the One Identity Manager. Verify and edit this information in the Designer.
  • The employee‘s area (state or country) has to be determined so that the working hours can be calculated correctly. Add the country and state of the primary location to the primary department, the primary cost center or directly to the employee.
  • The correct working hours are subsequently calculated. The standard working hours in the country, rule for weekends and holidays, as well as different time zones and daylight saving rules, are taken into account when the hours are calculated.

The employee‘s area and therefore valid working hours, are determined in the following order:

  1. State that is directly assigned to the employee.
  2. Country that is directly assigned to the employee.
  3. State of primary location.
  4. Country of primary location.
  5. State of primary department.
  6. Country of primary department.
  7. State of primary cost center.
  8. Country of primary cost center.
  9. State of primary business role.
  10. Country of primary business role.
  11. Fallback, in case the area could not be determined with this sequence:
    • State or country using the secondary location, department or cost center.
    • First country from all enabled countries in the database sorted by telephone number
    • Country "USA".
