System connector for connecting to an Active Directory system.
Program for analyzing data correlations in the database.
Program that can be used to create, document, compile, and publish a REST API (Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface). This API is based on the OpenAPI Specification and the One Identity Manager database model.
The API Server provides the API, which is created in the API Designer. It also provides the Operations Support Web Portal and your HTML5 web applications.
Functional roles that issue permissions to One Identity Manager functions that are the result of One Identity Manager user tasks within the company. Application roles take into account administrative tasks and approval processes. Application roles are predefined by One Identity Manager, but can be changed and extended.
The application server provides a connection pool for accessing the One Identity Manager database and ensures a secure connection to the database. Clients send their queries to the application server, which processes the objects, for example, by determining values using templates and sending the results back to the clients. The data from the application is sent to the database when an object is saved.
Determines which approval workflow is applied to an attestation case or an request, renewal, or unsubscription in the IT Shop.
Determines the attestors for the current attestation case as well as the approvers for the current request, renewal, or unsubscription in the IT Shop.
Process of granting or denying approval for IT Shop requests. An approval process starts with a product request and ends with the request being finally granted or denied approval. Details of approval processes are specified in approval policies and approval workflows.
Determines which approval procedures are applied in which order in attestation cases or request, renewals or unsubscriptions in the IT Shop. An approval workflow contains at least one approval level with at least one approval step. A different approval procedure can be used in every approval step and therefore a different group of employees can be specified as approvers.
Person who can grant or deny a request, renewal, or unsubscription within an approval process.
Requests memberships in hierarchical roles or assignment of company resources to hierarchical roles. For example, this allows a business role manager to request in the IT Shop which employees become members of the business role and which company resources are assigned. These requests undergo a defined approval process.
Table in which relationships between two tables are established. Both tables' objects are assigned to each other as a many-to-many relationship. For example, assignment tables are PersonInDepartment or ADSAccountInADSGroup.
Person who performs an attestation. Attestors grant or deny approval to data submitted in an attestation case.
Specify how users log in to the One Identity Manager tools. For example, users can log in with their Active Directory user account or directly as a employee. The authentication module determines the system user assigned to the logged-in user. This assigns the user edit permissions to the user interface of the launched tool and to the database objects.
Base objects contain data about the target system to be synchronized, its system connection, and the synchronization server.

Permissions are bound to objects. Permissions are used to grant users and groups access to the objects and object properties. Examples are permissions to display and edit objects, permissions to display UI elements in One Identity Manager tools, or permissions to approve requests. see system authorization; see user permissions
Person who can approve rule violations. Exception approvers belong to the Exception approver role and are assigned to at least one compliance rule through this role.
A schema can be customized in the Synchronization Editor, for example, to allow or simplify mapping of complex schema properties. Label the modified schema as "extended schema".

Measures to be taken to prevent a compliance rule from being violated (for example). Mitigating control Mitigating controls reduce risk by a fixed value (significance reduction). Mitigating controls are independent on One Identity Manager’s functionality. For example, by frequent manual checking for irregular permissions, mitigating controls can reduce the risk posed by a rule violation.
A module is a closed unit with a defined functionality. A module includes descriptive information, the binaries (exe, DLL), the documentation, and information about the database (see also One Identity Manager schema).
View of database objects that allows them to be distinguished by specific properties and thus provide additional control.
Filter for limiting the number of objects to synchronize. For example, the system objects of an Active Directory domain are limited to one container. You can also filter single objects.
The One Identity Manager data model. The data model is grouped logically in modules. The modules are linked through predecessor relationships. A module can have one or more predecessors. Each module extends the schema by its own tables and columns and installs its own default objects, such as, templates, scripts, or processes. The functions of a module are not available until the module is installed in the database.

Different permissions of One Identity Manager functions are grouped together in permissions groups. Permissions groups are allocated to system users and application roles. Thus, users of One Identity Manager tools obtain their permissions to One Identity Manager functions. Some permissions groups are part of the One Identity Manager installation. Other permissions groups can be custom defined in the Designer.
Condition that limits compilation of program code. Conditional compilation allows parts of the program code to be parsed whereas other parts remain untouched. Configuration parameters and their options define the possible preprocessor conditions.

Customer-specific criteria for grouping resources.
Security risk for the company if a company resource is assigned to an employee or a compliance rule, company policy, or attestation policy is violated. A risk index can be entered for any company resource, SAP function, attestation policy, company policy, or compliance rule. An employee's risk index is determined by the risk indexes of their directly and indirectly assigned company resources. It is given as a value between 0 (no risk) and 1 (problem).
Method used to calculate risk indexes. The risk index function defines the data sources, the objects to be included, the calculation type, and the table column of the function's target object.
Criteria for grouping similar hierarchical role together, such as departments or cost centers. To differentiate between different business roles, define company specific role classes. Role classes are used to specify which company resource assignments are possible through roles in a role class.

Grouping similar target systems. Examples: Active Directory, LDAP, SharePoint.
Rule for mapping object properties. Templates can be applied to an object and also have a cross-object effect.
One Identity Manager function you can use to track changes to an object that were made up to any point in the past. In its analysis, the TimeTrace function includes the data changes saved to the One Identity Manager database as well as the records stored in a History Database. You can use this to find out who had which permissions at which point in time. You can apply historical data to the current object and restore the object to the status prior to the change.
