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.
A site collection groups sites together. User account and their access permissions are managed on the sites. To automatically assign used accounts and employees, assign an account definition to the site collection.
Authorized user accounts and groups are displayed on the site collection's overview as well as the web application and the root site linked to the site collection. The quota template, the site collection administrators and auditors assigned to the site collection are also visible on the overview form.
To edit site collection properties
The following properties are displayed for site collections.
Initial account definition for creating user accounts. This account definition is used if automatic assignment of employees to user accounts is used for this
User accounts are only linked to the employee (Linked) if no account definition is given. This is the case on initial synchronization, for example.
