Primary Assignment

You make a primary assignment by referencing a department, cost center, or location through a foreign key to the employee, device, and workdesk objects. To do this, you use input fields for roles on the employee, device and workdesk master data forms. Primary assignment inheritance can be enable through configuration parameters. Primary assignment is enabled by default for employee objects.

NOTE: Changes to the configuration parameter result in the inheritance data being recalculated! That means: if the primary assignment is disabled at a later date, the inheritance data created in this way will be removed from the database.

Assigning through Dynamic Roles

Assignment through dynamic roles is a special case of indirect assignment. Dynamic roles are used to specify role memberships dynamically. Employees, devices, and workdesks are not permanently assigned to a role, just when they fulfill certain conditions. A check is performed regularly to assess which employees, devices, or workdesks fulfill these conditions. The means the role memberships change dynamically. For example, company resources can be assigned dynamically to all employees in a department in this way; if an employee leaves the department they immediately lose the resources assigned to them.

Assigning through IT Shop Requests

Assignment through the IT Shop is a special case of indirect assignment. Add employees to a shop as customers so that company resources can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All company resources assigned as product to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested company resources are assigned to the employees after approval is granted. Role memberships can be requested through the IT Shop as well as company resources.

Basics for Calculating Inheritance

Objects assigned through inheritance are calculated by the DBQueue Processor. Tasks are added to the DBQueue when assignments relevant to inheritance are made. These tasks are processed by the DBQueue Processor and result in follow-on tasks for the DBQueue or in processes for process component "HandleObjectComponent" in the Job queue. Resulting assignments of permissions to user accounts in the target system are inserted, modified or deleted during process handling.
