Default approval policies

One Identity Manager provides a default approval policy for default attestation of new users and recertification of all employees stored in the One Identity Manager database. Moreover, default approval policies are supplied through which different roles and system entitlements mapped in the Unified Namespace can be attested. You can use default approval policies for creating attestation policies in the Web Portal.

To edit default approval policies

  • In Manager, select the category Attestation | Basic configuration data | Approval policies | Predefined.

For detailed information about using default approval policies, see the One Identity Manager Web Portal User Guide.
