Default user accounts

Normally, each employee obtains a default user account, which has the permissions they require for their regular work. The user accounts are linked to the employee. By default, the link between employee and SharePoint Online user account is set up through the authentication objects to which the user account is assigned. Alternatively, employees can also be directly linked to the user accounts. Such user accounts can be managed through account definitions. The effect of the link and the scope of the employee’s inherited properties on the user accounts can be configured through an account definition and its manage levels.

To create default user accounts through account definitions

  1. Create an account definition and assign the Unmanaged and Full managed manage levels.
  2. Specify the effect of temporarily or permanently disabling, deleting or the security risk of an employee on its user accounts and group memberships for each manage level.
  3. Create a formatting rule for IT operating data.

    You use the mapping rule to define which rules are used to map the IT operating data for the user accounts, and which default values are used if no IT operating data can be determined via a person's primary roles.

    Which IT operating data is required depends on the target system. The following setting are recommended for default user accounts:

    • In the mapping rule for the IsGroupAccount column, use the default value 1 and enable Always use default value.
    • In the mapping rule for the IdentityType column, use the default value Primary and enable Always use default value.
  4. Enter the effective IT operating data for the target system. Select the concrete target system under Effects on.

    Specify in the departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles which IT operating data should apply when you set up a user account.

  5. Assign the account definition to employees.

    When the account definition is assigned to an employee, a new user account is created through the inheritance mechanism and subsequent processing.

Administrative user accounts

An administrative user account must be used for certain administrative tasks. Administrative user accounts are usually predefined by the target system and have fixed names and login names, such as Administrator.

Administrative user accounts are imported into One Identity Manager during synchronization.

NOTE: Some administrative user accounts can be automatically identified as privileged user accounts. To do this, enable the Mark selected user accounts as privileged schedule in Designer.
