System users’ passwords

The One Identity Manager password policy is used for logging in to One Identity Manager with a system user. This password policy defined the settings for the system user passwords (DialogUser.Password and Person.DialogUserPassword) as well as the passcode for a one time log in on the Web Portal (Person.Passcode).

If necessary, adjust the password policy to your requirements in the Designer. For more information about editing password policies, see One Identity Manager Operational Guide.

NOTE: The One Identity Manager password policy is marked as the default policy. This password policy is applied if no other password policy can be found for employees, user accounts or system users.

To prevent passwords expiring for service accounts, for example, in the Designer, you can enable the Password never expires (DialogUser.PasswordNeverExpires) option for the respective system users.

Table 24: Properties of a system user
Property Description

System users

Name of the system user for logging in to the administration tools.

Password and password confirmation

Password with which the system logs into the administration tools.

Password last changed

Date of last password change.

Password never expires

Specifies whether the password never expires. Enable the option for service accounts, for example, to prevent the password from expiring. This option overwrites the maximum age of the password.

Remarks

Text field for additional explanation.

Read-only

Set the option if a system user is a member in several permissions groups, but has read-only permissions for the objects. This overrides all edit permissions that the system user is granted through memberships in permission groups.

Logins

Logins with which the system user can log in to the One Identity Manager tools. Enter the login in the form: Domain\User. This information is required if the Account based system user authentication module is used to log into the One Identity Manager tools.

Administrative user

Specifies whether this is an administrative system user. Administrative system users are automatically added to all non role-based permissions groups.

NOTE: You can create an administrative system user in the Designer with the User & Permissions Group Editor using the Create administrator menu.

Service account

Specifies whether this is a system user that is used by a service account. This system user is not assigned to a permissions group but has all the permissions, tasks, and program functionality.

External password management

Specifies whether the system user password is determined by an external password management system. You cannot change the password in One Identity Manager. The determination of the system user password must be customized.

Disabled for direct login

Specifies whether the system user can be used for direct login. For example, enable the option for system users that are used for dynamic authentication modules to prevent direct logging in to One Identity Manager tools.

Adding system users to permission groups

Add the system users to permissions groups, thereby granting permissions for the tables and columns of the One Identity Manager schema and make the user interface available.

NOTE:

  • You cannot add system users to role-based permissions groups. Dynamic system users are calculated for role-based login.

  • Administrative system users are automatically added to all non role-based permissions groups.

  • The QBM_BaseRights permissions group defines the base rights that are required for a system user to log in to the One Identity Manager tools. This permissions group is always assigned implicitly.

  • The viadmin system user has all of the specified permissions and the complete user interface. The system user implicitly receives the authorizations and user interface parts of the custom permissions groups.

A system user's memberships in permissions groups are displayed in the Designer in the User & Permissions Group Editor. Use the Options > Display permissions group inheritance menu to specify whether to display the direct and inherited memberships of permissions groups for a system user.
