Once a new internal identity is created, they automatically obtain this account definition. The assignment is calculated by the DBQueue Processor.

IMPORTANT: Only run this task if you can ensure that all current internal identities in the database and all pending newly added internal identities obtain a user account in this target system.

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Basic configuration data > Account definitions > Account definitions category.

  2. Select an account definition in the result list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Select the Disable automatic assignment to identities task.

  5. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

  6. Save the changes.

NOTE: To automatically remove the account definition assignment from all identities, run the Disable automatic assignment to identities task. The account definition cannot be reassigned to identities from this point on. Existing assignments remain intact.
