Specifying types of system entitlements in use

Many target systems use more than one group type to map entitlements. For example, these might be groups, roles, or entitlement sets. There are four different types mapped in One Identity Manager

You decide when you set up synchronization, which types are mapped in which tables.

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 groups or system entitlements (entitlement-based assignment). In One Identity Manager, you can configure the behavior accordingly. Memberships are stored in the following tables:

Table 11: User-based assignment

System entitlements 1: Assignments to user accounts

UNSAccountBInUNSGroupB3

User accounts: Assignment to system entitlements 3

To specify which types of system entitlements to use

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

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

  3. In the System entitlement types used menu, select all the types to use in the connected target system.

  4. In the User account has memberships menu, select all the types with saved user account assignments.

    1. Enable the system entitlements with saved user account assignments.

    2. Disable the system entitlements with saved system entitlements assignments.

  5. Save the changes.
Example

In a target system, entitlements are managed as groups and profiles. Assignments to groups are maintained on the group objects, assignments to profiles on the user accounts. In the One Identity Manager, groups are mapped in the UNSGroupsB table, profiles in the UNSGroupB1 table.

  • In the Types of system entitlements used menu, set the Group and System entitlement 1 values.

  • In the User account has memberships menu, only set the System entitlement 1 value.

This saves the assignments to system entitlement in the UNSAccountBHasUNSGroupB1, and UNSAccountBInUNSGroupB tables.

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 groups and system entitlements to user accounts in One Identity Manager

Groups and system entitlements can be assigned directly or indirectly to a user account. Indirect assignment is carried out by sorting the identity, and the groups and system entitlements into hierarchical roles, such as departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles. If the identity has a user account in the target system, the groups and system entitlements in the role are inherited by this user account. You can assign groups and system entitlements to user accounts that belong to the same target system or to different target systems with the same target system type. For more information, see Target system types for custom target systems.

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

Through system roles, groups and system entitlements can be grouped together and assigned to identities and workdesks as a package. You can create system roles that contain only 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 groups and system entitlements directly to user accounts.

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

Indirect assignment places identities, groups, and system entitlements into hierarchical roles, such as departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles. When assigning groups and system entitlements indirectly, check the following settings and modify them if necessary.

  1. Identity, group, and system entitlement assignment is 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 groups and system entitlements to user accounts.

    • The user account is linked to an identity.

    • The options Groups can be inherited, System entitlements 1 can be inherited, System entitlements 1 can be inherited, System entitlements 1 can be inherited are set on the user account.

    • Depending on the target system type configuration, groups and system entitlements can only be assigned to either user accounts that belong to the same target system or to user accounts that belong to different target systems. For more information, see Target system types for custom target systems.

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 identities 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.
