Overview of all assignments

The Overview of all assignments report is displayed for some objects, such as authorizations, compliance rules, or roles. The report finds all the roles, for example, departments, cost centers, locations, business roles, and IT Shop structures in which there are employees who own the selected base object. In this case, direct as well as indirect base object assignments are included.

Examples:
  • If the report is created for a resource, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this resource.

  • If the report is created for a group or another system entitlement, all roles are determined in which there are employees with this group or system entitlement.

  • If the report is created for a compliance rule, all roles are determined in which there are employees who violate this compliance rule.

  • If the report is created for a department, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected department are also members.

  • If the report is created for a business role, all roles are determined in which employees of the selected business role are also members.

Managing Azure Active Directory administrator roles assignments

In One Identity Manager, you can assign the Azure Active Directory administrator roles directly to user accounts or they can be inherited through departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles. Users can also request the administrator roles through the Web Portal. To do this, administrator roles are provided in the IT Shop.

Assigning Azure Active Directory administrator roles to Azure Active Directory user accounts

Azure Active Directory administrator roles can be assigned directly or indirectly to Azure Active Directory user accounts.

In the case of indirect assignment, employees and Azure Active Directory administrator roles are assigned to hierarchical roles, such as, departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles. The Azure Active Directory administrator roles assigned to an employee are calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance. If you add an employee to roles and that employee owns an Azure Active Directory user account, the Azure Active Directory user account is added to the Azure Active Directory administrator roles.

You can also request Azure Active Directory administration roles in the Web Portal. To do this, add employees to a shop as customers. All Azure Active Directory administrator roles assigned as products to this shop, can be requested by the customers. Requested Azure Active Directory administrator roles are assigned to the employees after approval is granted.

Through system roles, Azure Active Directory administrator roles can be grouped together and assigned to employees and workdesks as a package. You can create system roles that contain only Azure Active Directory administrator roles. You can also group any number of company resources into a system role.

To react quickly to special requests, you can assign Azure Active Directory administrator roles directly to Azure Active Directory user accounts.
