You can use One Identity Manager to manage your local Unix-based target system user accounts. User accounts obtain the required access rights to the resources through membership in groups.
The central component of One Identity Manager is to map employees and their master data with permissions through which they have control over different target systems. For this purpose, information about user accounts and permissions can be read from the target system into the One Identity Manager database and linked to employees. This gives an overview of the permissions for each employees in all of the connected target systems. One Identity Manager provides the possibility to manage user accounts and their permissions. You can provision modifications in the target systems. Employees are supplied with the necessary permissions in the connected target systems according to their function in the company. Regular synchronization keeps data consistent between target systems and the One Identity Manager database.
Because requirements vary between companies, One Identity Manager offers different methods for supplying user accounts to employees. One Identity Manager supports the following method for linking employees and their user accounts.

When you manage account definitions through user accounts, you can specify the way user accounts behave when employees are enabled or deleted.
