User accounts in custom target systems

User accounts represent a target system's authentication objects. A user account obtains the required permissions for accessing target system resources through its memberships in groups and system entitlements.

A user account can be linked to an employee in One Identity Manager. You can also manage user accounts separately from employees.

NOTE: It is recommended to use account definitions to set up user accounts for company employees. In this case, some of the main data described in the following is mapped through templates from employee main data.

NOTE: If employees are to obtain their user accounts through account definitions, the employees must own a central user account and obtain their IT operating data through assignment to a primary department, a primary location, or a primary cost center.
