Managing Devices and Workdesks

The One Identity Manager offers extended device administration functionality for networks. The One Identity Manager differentiates between device types, device models and the device itself.

  • Device types, such as PCs, printers or monitors, provide the initial classification of the devices.
  • Device models provide the additional fine tuning of the device types in order to obtain a more exact classification of devices.
  • The actual devices as they are defined in the network are listed under devices.

Workdesks are required for assigning different devices to a workstation. The assignment of company resources can be mainly automated by assigning workdesks to business roles, departments, cost centers, locations or dynamic roles.

To manage devices and workdesks in the One Identity Manager

  • Set the configuration parameter "Hardware" in the Designer and compile the database.

Base Data for Device Management

Base Data for Device Management

The following basic data is required for managing devices:

  • Configuration parameter

    Use configuration parameters to configure the behavior of the system's basic settings. One Identity Manager provides default settings for different configuration parameters. Check the configuration parameters and modify them as necessary to suit your requirements.

    Configuration parameters are defined in the One Identity Manager modules. Each One Identity Manager module can also install configuration parameters. You can find an overview of all configuration parameters in the category Base data | General | Configuration parameters in the Designer.

  • Device model

    Device models are required to classify devices, for example, PC, server, monitor, printer types. One Identity Manager contains predefined device models.

  • Info about manufacturer and supplier

    You can enter the manufacturer and supplier to augment device model and device data.

  • Device status

    Provide the possible device statuses for device asset data.

  • Workdesk Status

    You can add a status to a workdesk.

  • Workdesk Type

    Provide workdesk types for further classification of workdesks,

Device Model

Device Model

The prerequisite for adding hardware is the definition of device models. Device models are required to classify devices, for example, PC, server, monitor, printer types. One Identity Manager contains predefined device models. You can define more device models.

To edit a hardware model

  1. Select the category Devices & Workdesks | Basic configuration data  | Device models.
  2. Select a device model in the result list. Select Change master data in the task view.

    - OR -

    Click in the result list toolbar.

  3. Edit the device model's master data.
  4. Save the changes.

General Master Data for a Device Model

Enter the following general master data for a device model.

Table 49: Device Model Master Data

Property

Description

Device model

Name of the device model.

Device type

Type of the device. During the setup of new device, the device model’s device type filters the forms that are available for handling master data.

Company

Name of manufacturer. Use the next to the text box to add a new company. For more information, see Business Partners.

NOTE: Only the companies that are marked as manufacturers can be selected. When a new device is added, the company named as manufacturer in the device model is used for the device.

Service item

If you assigned a service item to the device model, the usage of the device model can be booked internally. Use the next to the text box to add a new service item.

Website

Manufacturers Website.

Use the Browse task to see the manufacturer’s website in the standard web browser.

Description

Spare text box for additional explanation.

Additional data

PC

Specifies whether, in principle, the device can be used as a PC in the sense of workstation.

Server

Specifies whether the device is used as a server.

Local peripheral

Specifies whether this device type is a local peripheral to attach to a PC.

Disabled

Specifies whether the device model is in use or not.

NOTE: Only device models which are enabled can be assigned in One Identity Manager. If a device model is deactivated, assignment of the device model is not permitted. However, existing assignments remain intact.
