Specifying categories for inheriting permissions

In One Identity Manager, groups can be selectively inherited by user accounts. For this purpose, the groups and the user accounts are divided into categories. The categories can be freely selected and are specified using a mapping rule. Each category is given a specific position within the template. The template contains two tables; the user account table and the group table. Use the user account table to specify categories for target system dependent user accounts. In the group table enter your categories for the target system-dependent groups. Each table contains the Position 1 to Position 31 category positions.

To define a category

  1. In the Manager, select the host in the Unix | Hosts category.

  2. Select the Change master data task.
  3. Switch to the Mapping rule category tab.
  4. Extend the relevant roots of the user account table or group table.
  5. To enable the category, double-click .
  6. Enter a category name of your choice for user accounts and groups in the login language that you use.
  7. Save the changes.

How to edit a synchronization project

Synchronization projects in which a host is already used as a base object can also be opened in the Manager. You can, for example, check the configuration or view the synchronization log in this mode. The Synchronization Editor is not started with its full functionality. You cannot run certain functions, such as, running synchronization or simulation, starting the target system browser and others.

NOTE: The Manager is locked for editing throughout. To edit objects in the Manager, close the Synchronization Editor.

To open an existing synchronization project in the Synchronization Editor

  1. Select the Unix | Hosts category.
  2. Select the host in the result list. Select the Change master data task.
  3. Select the Edit synchronization project... task.
