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. In the role classes , specify whether a secondary assignment of company resources to employees, device, and workdesk is possible.

Primary assignment

You make a primary assignment using a business role foreign key reference in employee, device, and workdesk objects. To do this, use the role fields on the employee, device, and workdesk master data forms. Primary assignment inheritance can be enabled through configuration parameters. Primary assignment is enabled by default for employee objects.

NOTE: Changes to the configuration parameter result in the inheritance data being recalculated! That means: if the primary assignment is disabled at a later date, the inheritance data created in this way will be removed from the database.

Assignment by 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 business role in this way; if an employee leaves the business role they immediately lose the resources assigned to them.

Assigning through IT Shop requests

Assignment through the IT Shop is a special case of indirect assignment. Add employees to a shop as customers so that company resources can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All company resources assigned as product to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested company resources are assigned to the employees after approval is granted. Role memberships can be requested through the IT Shop as well as company resources.
