System entitlements types in cloud target systems

Many cloud applications use different entitlement types to manage user entitlements. In addition to groups, these can also be roles or permissions sets, for example. If synchronization projects are created with the default project template, the different types are mapped in One Identity Manager as follows.

A user account obtains the required entitlements for accessing target system resources through its assignments to groups or system entitlements. Depending on the target system, assignments are maintained either on user accounts (user-based assignment) or on system entitlements (entitlement-based assignment). When setting up synchronization with the default project template, the Universal Cloud Interface connector determines which object type is used to store the assignments. Assignments are mapped in the following tables:

Table 17: User-based assignment

Groups: Assignments to user accounts

CSMUserHasGroup1

System entitlements 1: Assignments to user accounts

CSMUserHasGroup2

System entitlements 2: Assignments to user accounts

User accounts: Assignment to groups

CSMUserInGroup1

User accounts: Assignment to system entitlements 1

CSMUserInGroup2

User accounts: Assignment to system entitlements 2

CSMUserInGroup3

User accounts: Assignment to system entitlements 3

Assignments to permissions controls are always user-based.

The types of system entitlements used and whether the assignments are saved with the user accounts or the system entitlements is stored with the cloud target systems.

To display the types of system entitlements used

  1. In the Manager, select the Cloud target systems > Basic configuration data > Cloud target systems category.

  2. In the result list, select a cloud target system and run the Change main data task.

    • System entitlement types used: List of system entitlement types used in the cloud target system.

    • User account contains memberships: List of system entitlement types with user-based assignments. For types not listed here, the assignments are stored with the system entitlements.

TIP: If the cloud application schema cannot be adequately represented by the default project template, customize the synchronization configuration. At the same time, define how the system entitlements are mapped in the One Identity Manager schema. When you are setting up synchronization, ensure that the base object for the cloud application(CSMRoot) is created in the database and the System entitlements types used (GroupUsageMask) and User account contains memberships (UserContainsGroupList) properties are set correctly.

NOTE: When setting up attestation procedures, compliance rules, or company policies using system entitlements, be sure to select the correct assignment tables to look at both user-based and entitlement-based assignments.

To set up functions independently of the target system configurations, use the target system mapping in the Unified Namespace. Both user-based and entitlement-based assignments for all types of system entitlements are mapped in the UNSAccountInUNSGroup table; the UNSGroup table contains all system entitlements regardless of type.

For more information about the Unified Namespace, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

Detailed information about the attestation functions, compliance rules, and company policies can be found in the following guides:

Assigning cloud groups and system entitlements to cloud user accounts in One Identity Manager

Cloud groups and system entitlements can be assigned to employees directly or indirectly.

In the case of indirect assignment, employees as well as groups and entitlements are organized in hierarchical roles. The number of groups and system entitlements assigned to an employee is calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance. If you add an employee to hierarchical roles and that employee owns a cloud user account, this user account is added to the cloud groups and system entitlements.

Cloud groups and system entitlements can also be requested in the Web Portal. To do this, add employees to a shop as customers. All cloud groups and system entitlements assigned to this shop as products can be requested by the customers. After approval is granted, requested cloud groups and system entitlements are assigned to the employees.

Through system roles, cloud groups and system entitlements can be grouped together and assigned to employees as a package. You can create system roles that contain only cloud groups or system entitlements. You can also group any number of company resources into a system role.

To react quickly to special requests, you can assign cloud groups and system entitlements directly to user accounts.

Prerequisites for indirect assignments of cloud groups and system entitlements to user accounts

In the case of indirect assignment, employees as well as cloud groups and entitlements are organized in hierarchical roles. When assigning cloud groups and system entitlements indirectly, check the following settings and modify them if necessary.

  1. Employees, cloud groups, and system entitlement assignments are permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location, or business roles).

    For more information, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

  2. Settings for assigning cloud groups and system entitlements to cloud user accounts.

    • Cloud user accounts are linked to employees.

    • Cloud user accounts are labeled with the Groups can be inherited, System entitlements 1 can be inherited, System entitlements 2 can be inherited, System entitlements 3 can be inherited option.

    • Cloud user accounts, cloud groups, and system entitlements belong to the same system.

NOTE: There are other configuration settings that play a role when company resources are inherited through departments, cost centers, locations, and business roles. For example, role inheritance might be blocked or inheritance of employees not allowed. For more detailed information about the basic principles for assigning company resources, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.
