Specifying Categories for Inheriting Groups

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 this mapping rule. 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 category positions Position 1 to Position 31.

To define a category

  1. In Manager, select the target system in Cloud target systems.

  2. Select Change master data.
  3. Switch to the Mapping rule category tab.
  4. Extend the relevant roots of the user account table or group table.
  5. Click to enable category.
  6. Enter a category name of your choice for user accounts and groups and in the login language used.
  7. Save the changes.

Alternative Column Names

If you require different names for input fields to those on the master data form, you can specify a language-dependent alternative column name for each object type.

To specify alternative column names

  1. Select the category Cloud Target Systems | Basic configuration data | Cloud target systems.
  2. In the result list, select a target system. Select Change master data.
  3. Select the tab Alternative column names.
  4. Open the membership tree in the table whose column name you want to change.

    All the columns in this table are listed with their default column names.

  5. Enter any name in the login language in use.
  6. Save the changes.

How to Edit a Synchronization Project

Synchronization projects in which a Cloud target system is already used as a base object can also be opened via 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 category Cloud Target Systems | Basic configuration data | Cloud target systems.
  2. Select the target system in the result list. Select Change master data.
  3. Select Edit synchronization project... from the task view.
