Assigning Company Resources to Workdesks

Assigning Company Resources to Workdesks

One Identity Manager uses different assignment types to assign company resources.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Assigning through Dynamic Roles

    Assignment through dynamic roles is a special case of indirect assignment. Dynamic roles are used to specify role memberships dynamically. Employees, devices and 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 department in this way; if an employee leaves the department they immediately lose the resources assigned to them.

The following table shows the possible company resources assignments to workdesks.

Note: Company resources are defined in the One Identity Manager modules and are not available until the modules are installed.
