General main data of Azure Active Directory user accounts

Enter the following data on the General tab.

Table 27: Additional main data of a user account
Property Description

Employee

Employee that uses this user account. An employee is already entered if the user account was generated by an account definition. If you create the user account manually, you can select an employee in the menu. If you are using automatic employee assignment, an associated employee is found and added to the user account when you save the user account.

You can create a new employee for a user account with an identity of type Organizational identity, Personalized administrator identity, Sponsored identity, Shared identity, or Service identity. To do this, click next to the input field and enter the required employee main data. Which login data is required depends on the selected identity type.

No link to an employee required

Specifies whether the user account is intentionally not assigned an employee. The option is automatically set if a user account is included in the exclusion list for automatic employee assignment or a corresponding attestation is carried out. You can set the option manually. Enable the option if the user account does not need to be linked with an employee (for example, if several employees use the user account).

If attestation approves these user accounts, these user accounts will not be submitted for attestation in the future. In the Web Portal, user accounts that are not linked to an employee can be filtered according to various criteria.

Not linked to an employee

Indicates why the No link to an employee required option is enabled for this user account. Possible values:

  • By administrator: The option was set manually by the administrator.

Account definition

Use the account definition to automatically fill user account main data and to specify a manage level for the user account. One Identity Manager finds the IT operating data of the assigned employee and enters it in the corresponding fields in the user account.

NOTE: The account definition cannot be changed once the user account has been saved.

NOTE: Use the user account's Remove account definition task to reset the user account to Linked status. This removes the account definition from both the user account and the employee.
