Reports about Unix Objects

One Identity Manager makes various reports available containing information about the selected base object and its relations to other One Identity Manager database objects. The following reports are available for Unix-based target systems.

NOTE: Other sections may be available depending on the which modules are installed.

Report

Description

Overview of all assignments

This report finds all roles containing employees with at least one user account in the selected host system.

Show orphaned user accounts

This report shows all host's user accounts that are not assigned to an employee. The report contains group memberships and risk assessment.

Show employees with multiple user accounts

This report shows all employees with more than one user account in the host. The report contains a risk assessment.

Show unused user accounts

This report shows all user accounts in the host that have not been used in the last few months. The report contains group memberships and risk assessment.

Show system entitlement drifts

This report shows all host's groups that are the result of manual operations in the target system rather than using One Identity Manager.

Show user accounts with an above average number of system entitlements

This report contains all the host's user accounts with an above average number of group memberships.

Unix user account and group administration

This report contains a summary of user account and group distribution in all host systems. You can find this report in My One Identity Manager.

Data quality summary for Unix user accounts

This report contains different evaluations of user account data quality in all host systems. You can find this report in My One Identity Manager.

Overview of all assignments

The Overview of all assignments report is displayed for some objects, such as authorizations, compliance rules, or roles. The report finds all the roles, for example, departments, cost centers, locations, business roles and IT Shop structures in which there are employee who own the selected base object. In this case, direct as well as indirect base object assignments are included.

Example
  • If the report is created for a resource, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this resource.
  • If the report is created for a group or another system entitlement, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this group or system entitlement.
  • If the report is created for a compliance rule, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this compliance rule.
  • If the report is created for a department, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected department are also members.
  • If the report is created for a business role, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected business role are also members.

To display detailed information about assignments

  • To display the report, select the base object from the navigation or the result list and select the report Overview of all assignments.
  • Click the Used by button in the report toolbar to select the role class for which you want to determine whether roles exist that contain employees with the selected base object.

    All the roles of the selected role class are shown. The color coding of elements identifies the role in which there are employees with the selected base object. The meaning of the report control elements is explained in a separate legend. To access the legend, click the icon in the report’s toolbar.

  • Double-click a control to show all child roles belonging to the selected role.
  • By clicking the button in a role's control, you display all employees in the role with the base object.
  • Use the small arrow next to to start a wizard that allows you to bookmark this list of employee for tracking. This creates a new business role to which the employees are assigned.

Appendix: Configuration parameters for managing a Unix environment

The following configuration parameters are additionally available in One Identity Manager after the module has been installed.

Table 39: Configuration parameters
Configuration parameters Description

TargetSystem\Unix

Preprocessor relevant configuration parameter to control the component parts for the managing Unix-based custom target systems. If the parameter is set, the target system components are available. Changes to the parameter require recompiling the database.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts

This configuration parameter permits configuration of user account data.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword

This configuration parameter specifies whether a random generated password is issued when a new user account is added. The password must contain at least those character sets that are defined in the password policy.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo

This configuration parameter specifies to which employee the email with the randomly generated password should be sent (manager cost center/department/location/role, employee’s manager or XUserInserted). If no recipient can be found, the password is sent to the address stored in "TargetSystem\Unix\DefaultAddress".

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo\
MailTemplateAccountName

This configuration parameter contains the name of the mail template sent to provide users with the login data for their user accounts. The Employee - new user account created mail template is used.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
InitialRandomPassword\SendTo\
MailTemplatePassword

This configuration parameter contains the name of the mail template sent to provide users with information about their initial password. The Employee - initial password for new user account mail template is used.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
MailTemplateDefaultValues

This configuration parameter contains the mail template used to send notifications if default IT operating data mapping values are used for automatically creating a user account. The Employee - new user account with default properties created mail template is used.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount
This configuration parameter allows configuration of settings for privileged Unix user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount\
AccountName_Postfix

This configuration parameter contains the postfix for formatting login names for privileged user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\Accounts\
PrivilegedAccount\
AccountName_Prefix

This configuration parameter contains the prefix for formatting login names for privileged user accounts.

TargetSystem\Unix\DefaultAddress

The configuration parameter contains the recipient's default email address for sending notifications about actions in the target system.

TargetSystem\Unix\
MaxFullsyncDuration

This configuration parameter contains the maximum runtime for synchronization. No recalculation of group memberships by the DBQueue Processor can take place during this time. If the maximum runtime is exceeded, group membership are recalculated.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoDefault

This configuration parameter specifies the mode for automatic employee assignment for user accounts added to the database outside synchronization.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoDisabledAccounts

This configuration parameters specifies whether employees are automatically assigned to disable user accounts. User accounts do not obtain an account definition.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonAutoFullSync

This configuration parameter specifies the mode for automatic employee assignment for user accounts added to or updated in the database through synchronization.

TargetSystem\Unix\
PersonExcludeList

List of all user accounts for which automatic employee assignment should not take place. Names are listed in a pipe (|) delimited list that is handled as a regular search pattern.

Example:

ROOT

Appendix: Default Project Template for Unix-Based Target Systems

A default project template ensures that all required information is added in One Identity Manager. This includes mappings, workflows and the synchronization base object. If you do not use a default project template you must declare the synchronization base object in One Identity Manager yourself.

Use a default project template for initially setting up the synchronization project. For custom implementations, you can extend the synchronization project with the Synchronization Editor.

The template uses mappings for the following schema types.
