Base Data for Resources

The following basic data is required for managing resources.

  • Resource Types

    You can use resource types to group resources.

  • Processing status

    After a resource has been assigned, further manual processing may be necessary. You can define processing statuses in One Identity Manager that reflect the status of each manual processing step.

  • Extended properties

    Extended properties are meta objects that cannot be mapped directly in One Identity Manager, for example, operating codes, cost codes or cost accounting areas.

Resource Types

You can use resource types to group resources.

To define resource types

  1. Select Entitlements | Basic configuration data | Resource types.
  2. Select a resource type in the result list. Select Change master data.

    – OR –

    Click in the result list toolbar.

  3. Enter a name and description for the resource type.

Processing status

After a resource has been assigned, further manual processing may be necessary. You can define processing statuses in One Identity Manager that reflect the status of each manual processing step.

NOTE: Manual post-processing of resource requests is not part of the standard One Identity Manager installation. Implement a custom solution for the required functionality.
Example

An employee requests a mobile phone through the IT Shop. This request is authorized by the person in charge of the employee’s cost center. The following steps could be necessary:

  1. Initiate phone request at the dealers
  2. Check delivery
  3. Activate the resource in asset accounting
  4. Deliver phone to employee

Once a processing step has been completed the processing status for the assigned resource should be updated. Employees can use this to keep up-to-date with the progress of their requests.

To edit processing statuses

  1. Select Entitlements | Basic configuration data | Processing status.
  2. Select a processing status in the result list. Select Change master data.

    – OR –

    Click in the result list toolbar.

  3. Edit the processing status's master data.
  4. Save the changes.

Enter the following properties for a processing status.

Table 70: General master data for a processing status
Property Description
Processing status Name of the processing status.
Success The processing status marks the success of the processing step.
Closed The processing status marks whether processing is complete.
Sort order Order in which processing status can be set.
Description Spare text box for additional explanation.

You can use user-defined columns, for example, to link processing statuses to resources (Spare field no. 01 to Spare field no. 10) To use the processing status in requests, specify Processing status on success and Processing status on error in the approval step.
