SharePointSite Collections and Sites

SharePoint sites are organized into site collections. A site collection manages access rights and characterization templates for all sites in the site collection. It consists of at least one site on the top level (root site). Other websites are arranged below this root site. They can be connected to hierarchies through simple task relationships. Properties (for example role definitions) can be inherited by child sites though this hierarchical structure.

Site collections and sites are mapped with their access rights to One Identity Manager. You cannot edit their properties in the One Identity Manager. You can edit access rights managed within a site collection in One Identity Manager. To do this, SharePoint roles, groups and user accounts are loaded into the One Identity Manager database.

General Master Data for a Site Collection

The following properties are displayed for site collections.

Table 19: General master data for a site collection
Property Description
Account definition

Initial account definition for creating user accounts. This account definition is used if automatic assignment of employees to user accounts is used for this site collection and if user accounts are to be created that are already managed (Linked configured). The account definition's default manage level is applied.

User accounts are only linked to the employee (Linked) if no account definition is given. This is the case on initial synchronization, for example.

Specifying Categories for Inheriting SharePoint 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 site collection in SharePoint | Site collections.

  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.
