Editing search criteria for automatic employee assignment

The criteria for employee assignments are defined for the target system. You specify which user account properties must match the employee’s properties such that the employee can be assigned to the user account. You can limit search criteria further by using format definitions.

The search criterion is written in XML notation to the Search criteria for automatic employee assignment column (AccountToPersonMatchingRule) in the target system table.

Search criteria are evaluated when employees are automatically assigned to user accounts. Furthermore, you can create a suggestion list for assignments of employees to user accounts based on the search criteria and make the assignment directly.

NOTE: Object definitions for user accounts that can have search criteria applied to them are predefined. For example, if you require other objects definitions that limit a preselection of user accounts, set up the respective custom object definitions in the Designer. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

To specify criteria for employee assignment

  1. In the Manager, select the Custom Target Systems > Basic configuration data > Target systems category.

  2. Select the target system in the result list.

  3. Select the Define search criteria for employee assignment task.

  4. Specify which user account properties must match with which employee so that the employee is linked to the user account.

  5. Save the changes.

For more information about defining search criteria, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

Finding employees and directly assigning them to user accounts

Based on the search criteria, you can create a suggestion list for the assignment of employees to user accounts and make the assignment directly. User accounts are grouped in different views for this.

Table 9: Manual assignment view

View

Description

Suggested assignments

This view lists all user accounts to which One Identity Manager can assign an employee. All employees are shown who were found using the search criteria and can be assigned.

Assigned user accounts

This view lists all user accounts to which an employee is assigned.

Without employee assignment

This view lists all user accounts to which no employee is assigned and for which no employee was found using the search criteria.

To apply search criteria to user accounts

TIP: By double-clicking on an entry in the view, you can view the user account and employee main data.

The assignment of employees to user accounts creates connected user accounts (Linked state). To create managed user accounts (Linked configured state), you can assign an account definition at the same time.

To assign employees directly over a suggestion list

  • Click Suggested assignments.

    1. Click the Selection box of all user accounts to which you want to assign the suggested employees. Multi-select is possible.

    2. (Optional) Select an account definition in the Assign this account definition menu, and select a manage level in the Assign this account manage level menu.

    3. Click Assign selected.

    4. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

      The employees determined using the search criteria are assigned to the selected user accounts. If an account definition was selected, this is assigned to all selected user accounts.

    - OR -

  • Click No employee assignment.

    1. Click Select employee for the user account to which you want to assign an employee. Select an employee from the menu.

    2. Click the Selection box of all user accounts to which you want to assign the selected employees. Multi-select is possible.

    3. (Optional) Select an account definition in the Assign this account definition menu, and select a manage level in the Assign this account manage level menu.

    4. Click Assign selected.

    5. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

      The employees displayed in the Employee column are assigned to the selected user accounts. If an account definition was selected, this is assigned to all selected user accounts.

To remove assignments

  • Click Assigned user accounts.

    1. Click the Selection box of all the user accounts you want to delete the employee assignment from. Multi-select is possible.

    2. Click Remove selected.

    3. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

      The assigned employees are removed from the selected user accounts.

Changing manage levels for user accounts

The default manage level is applied if you create user accounts using automatic employee assignment. You can change a user account manage level later.

To change the manage level for a user account

  1. In the Manager, select the Custom Target Systems > <target system> > User accounts category.

  2. Select the user account in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Select the manage level in the Manage level list on the General tab.

  5. Save the changes.

Assigning account definitions to linked user accounts

An account definition can be subsequently assigned to user accounts with Linked status. This may be necessary, for example, if:

  • Employees and user accounts were linked manually.

  • Automatic employee assignment is configured, but when a user account is inserted, no account definition is assigned in the domain.

To manage user accounts through account definitions

  1. Create an account definition.

  2. Assign a user account in the Linked state to the account definition. The account definition's default manage level is applied to the user account.

    1. In the Manager, select the Custom Target Systems > target system > User accounts > Linked but not configured > target system> category.

    2. Select the Assign account definition to linked accounts task.

    3. In the Account definition menu, select the account definition.

    4. Select the user accounts that contain the account definition.

    5. Save the changes.
