Entering employee master data

In One Identity Manager, you can manage master data for company employees as well as external employees. Because the described master data is the same for internal and external employees, the Employee term is used in the following description.

In One Identity Manager, enter employee master data in the Employees category. Employees are filters by different criteria in this category.

  • Employees: All activated and temporarily disabled employees.

  • Inactive employees: All permanently disabled employees.

  • Locked employees: All employees who are locked due to incorrect password input.

  • Certification: All employees by certification status.

  • Data source: All employees by import data source.

  • Identity: All employees according to their identity type.

To edit employee master data

  1. In the Manager, select the Employees | Employees category.

  2. Select an employee in the result list and run the Change master data task.

    – OR –

    Click in the result list.

    This opens the master data form for an employee.

  3. Edit the employee's master data.

  4. Save the changes.

Ensure you fill out all compulsory fields when you edit the master data. Certain master data is inherited by the employee user account through templates.

NOTE: Employee properties loaded from a target system can only be edited to a limited degree in the One Identity Manager. Certain properties are locked due to being the master system. The source from which the employee master data is imported determines which properties are locked.
