Application role Description

Administrators

Administrators must be assigned to Custom | Administrators.

Users with this application role:

  • Administrate custom application roles.

  • Configure and start synchronization in the Synchronization Editor.

  • Edit the synchronization's target system types as well as outstanding objects in the Manager.

You can use these application roles, for example, to guarantee One Identity Manager users write permissions on custom tables or columns. All application roles that you define here must obtain their write permissions through custom permissions groups.

Implementing the application roles

IMPORTANT: To use application roles you must add one employee to the application role Base roles | Administrators. This employee is the authorized to assigned administrative One Identity Manager application roles to other employees.

Run this task once.

To initially add an employee to the application role Base roles | Administrators

  1. Log into the Manager as a non role-based administrative user.
  2. Select the Employees | Employees.
  3. Select the employee to be assigned to the application role Base role | Administrators.
  4. Select the Authorize as One Identity Manager administrator task.

Note: Once you update the view in Manager, the Authorize as One Identity Manager administrator task is no longer displayed in the task view. That means that the task can only be run when there are no other employees assigned to this application role.

After you have been working with One Identity Manager for a while, it is possible that no more employees are assigned to the Base roles | Administrators application role. In this case, proceed as described above in order to reassign an employee to this application role.

The One Identity Manager user with the application role Base roles | Administrators can now add more employees to application roles and edit the application role master data.
