This input is evaluated when One Identity Manager Service is automatically updated. If the server is handling several queues the process steps are not supplied until all the queues that are being processed on the same server have completed their automatic update.

Queue Name of the queue to handle the process steps. Each One Identity Manager Service within the network must have a unique queue identifier. The process steps are requested by the job queue using exactly this queue name. The queue identifier is entered in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file.
Server operating system Operating system of the server. This input is required to resolve the path name for replicating software profiles. The values Win32, Windows, Linux and Unix are permitted. If no value is specified, Win32 is used.
Service account data One Identity Manager Service user account information. In order to replicate between non-trusted systems (non-trusted domains, Linux server) the One Identity Manager Service user information has to be declared for the servers in the database. This means that the service account, the service account domain and the service account password have to be entered for the server.
One Identity Manager Service installed Specifies whether a One Identity Manager Service is installed on this server. This option is enabled by the procedure QBM_PJobQueueLoad the moment the queue is called for the first time.

The option is not automatically removed. If necessary, you can reset this option manually for servers whose queue is no longer enabled.

Stop One Identity Manager Service Specifies whether the One Identity Manager Service has stopped. If this option is set for the Job server, the One Identity Manager Service does not process any more tasks.

You can make the service start and stop with the appropriate administrative permissions in the program "Job Queue Info". For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

No automatic software update Specifies whether to exclude the server from automatic software updating.

NOTE: Servers must be manually updated if this option is set.
Software update running Specifies whether a software update is currently being executed.
Server function Server functionality in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.

Target system managers

A default application role exists for the target system manager in One Identity Manager. Assign the employees who are authorized to edit all SharePoint farms in One Identity Manager to this application role.

Define additional application roles if you want to limit the edit permissions for target system managers to individual farms. The application roles must be added under the default application role.

For detailed information about implementing and editing application roles, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Implementing application roles for target system managers
  1. The One Identity Manager administrator assigns employees to be target system managers.

  2. These target system managers add employees to the default application role for target system managers.

    Target system managers with the default application role are authorized to edit all SharePoint farms in One Identity Manager.

  3. Target system managers can authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and if necessary, create additional child application roles and assign these to individual SharePoint farms.

Table 12: Default Application Roles for Target System Managers
Users Tasks

target system managers

 

Target system managers must be assigned to Target systems | SharePoint or a sub-application role.

Users with this application role:

  • Assume administrative tasks for the target system.

  • Create, change or delete target system objects, like user accounts or groups.

  • Edit password policies for the target system.

  • Prepare system entitlements for adding to the IT Shop.

  • Can create employees with an identity that differs from the Primary identity.

  • Configure synchronization in the Synchronization Editor and defines the mapping for comparing target systems and One Identity Manager.

  • Edit the synchronization's target system types and outstanding objects.

  • Authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and create child application roles if required.

To initially specify employees to be target system administrators

  1. Log in to One Identity Manager as Manager administrator (Base role | Administrators)
  2. Select One Identity Manager Administration | Target systems | Administrators.
  3. Select Assign employees.
  4. Assign the employee you want and save the changes.

Setting Up Account Definitions

One Identity Manager has account definitions for automatically allocating user accounts to employees during working hours. You can create account definitions for every target system. If an employee does not yet have a user account in a target system, a new user account is created. This is done by assigning account definitions to an employee.

The data for the user accounts in the respective target system comes from the basic employee data. The employees must have a user account. The assignment of the IT operating data to the employee’s user account is controlled through the primary assignment of the employee to a location, a department, a cost center, or a business role (template processing). Processing is done through templates. There are predefined templates for determining the data required for user accounts included in the default installation. You can customize templates as required.

For detailed information about account definitions, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

NOTE: Only SharePoint user accounts that are not marked as a group can be created with account definitions (IsDomainGroup = 'false'). However, it is recommended to create SharePoint user accounts based on target system groups. Only use account definitions for SharePoint if you are not following standard procedure. For more information, see SharePoint user accounts.

The following steps are required to implement an account definition:
