Employee administration

The main component of One Identity Manager maps employees with their master data and all available company resources. IT resources, such as devices, software, and access permissions in various target systems, qualify as company resources. Resources such as mobile telephones, company cars, or keys can be mapped to employees, as well.

Employees obtain company resources according to their function and their position with the company structure. Company structures, such as departments, cost centers, and location, are also mapped in the One Identity Manager. As are employee memberships in these company structures. Once company resources are assigned to the company structures, they are inherited by all the members. This way, employees automatically be supplied with all the necessary company resources.

If you manage access permissions on all One Identity Manager tools using the application role, you obtain all of the information about current access permissions and employee responsibilities with One Identity Manager.

One Identity Manager components for managing employees are available when the configuration parameter QER | Person is set.

  • Check whether the configuration parameter is set in the Designer. If not, set the configuration parameter.
