Account definition

Account definition name.

User account table

Table in the One Identity Manager schema that maps user accounts.

Target system

Target system to which the account definition applies.

Required account definition

Specifies the required account definition. Define the dependencies between account definitions. When this account definition is requested or assigned, the required account definition is assigned automatically.

Leave empty for E-Business Suite systems.

Description

Text field for additional explanation.

Manage level (initial)

Manage level to use by default when you add new user accounts.

Risk index

Value for evaluating the risk of assigning the account definition to identities. Set a value in the range 0 to 1. This input field is only visible if the QER | CalculateRiskIndex configuration parameter is set.

For more information, see the One Identity Manager Risk Assessment Administration Guide.

Service item

Service item through which you can request the account definition resource in the IT Shop. Assign an existing service item or add a new one.

IT Shop

Specifies whether the account definition can be requested through the IT Shop. This account definition can be requested through the Web Portal and allocated by defined approval processes. The resource can also be assigned directly to identities and roles outside the IT Shop.

Only for use in IT Shop

Specifies whether the account definition can only be requested through the IT Shop. This account definition can be requested through the Web Portal and allocated by defined approval processes. The account definition cannot be directly assigned to roles outside the IT Shop.

Automatic assignment to identities

Specifies whether the account definition is automatically assigned to all internal identities. To automatically assign the account definition to all internal identity, use the Enable automatic assignment to identities The account definition is assigned to every identity that is not marked as external. Once a new internal identity is created, they automatically obtain this account definition.

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

Retain account definition if permanently disabled

Specifies the account definition assignment to permanently deactivated identities.

Option set: The account definition assignment remains in effect. The user account remains intact.

Option not set (default): The account definition assignment is not in effect. The associated user account is disabled.

Retain account definition if temporarily disabled

Specifies the account definition assignment to temporarily deactivated identities.

Option set: The account definition assignment remains in effect. The user account remains intact.

Option not set (default): The account definition assignment is not in effect. The associated user account is disabled.

Retain account definition on deferred deletion

Spare field 01 - spare field 10

Additional company-specific information. Use the Designer to customize display names, formats, and templates for the input fields.

Entitlements can be inherited

Specifies whether the user account can inherit E-Business Suite permissions through the identity. If this option is set, the user account inherits permissions through hierarchical roles or IT Shop requests.

  1. Example: An identity with an E-Business Suite user account is a member of a department. This department is assigned an E-Business Suite entitlement. If this option is set, the user account inherits this entitlement.

  2. Example: An identity with an E-Business Suite user account requests an E-Business Suite entitlement in the IT Shop. The request is approved and assigned. The user account only inherits this entitlement if this option is active.

Creating manage levels

Specify the manage level for an account definition for managing user accounts. The user account’s manage level specifies the extent of the identity’s properties that are inherited by the user account. This allows an identity to have several user accounts in one target system, for example:

  • Default user account that inherits all properties from the identity.

  • Administrative user account that is associated to an identity but should not inherit the properties from the identity.

One Identity Manager supplies a default configuration for manage levels:

  • Unmanaged: User accounts with the Unmanaged manage level are linked to the identity but they do no inherit any further properties. When a new user account is added with this manage level and an identity is assigned, some of the identity's properties are transferred initially. If the identity properties are changed at a later date, the changes are not passed onto the user account.

  • Full managed: User accounts with the Full managed manage level inherit defined properties of the assigned identity. When a new user account is created with this manage level and an identity is assigned, the identity's properties are transferred in an initial state. If the identity properties are changed at a later date, the changes are passed onto the user account.

NOTE: The Full managed and Unmanaged manage levels are analyzed in templates. You can customize the supplied templates in the Designer.

You can define other manage levels depending on your requirements. You need to amend the templates to include manage level approaches.

Specify how an identity's temporary deactivation, permanent deactivation, deletion, and security risks affect its user accounts and group memberships at each manage level. For more information about manage levels, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

  • Identity user accounts can be locked when they are disabled, deleted, or rated as a security risk so that permissions are immediately withdrawn. If the identity is reinstated at a later date, the user accounts are also reactivated.

  • You can also define group membership inheritance. Inheritance can be discontinued if desired when, for example, the identity’s user accounts are disabled and therefore cannot be members in groups. During this time, no inheritance processes should be calculated for this identity. Existing group memberships are deleted.

IMPORTANT: The Unmanaged manage level is assigned automatically when you create an account definition and it cannot be removed.

Creating mapping rules for IT operating data

An account definition specifies which rules are used to form the IT operating data and which default values will be used if no IT operating data can be found through the identity's primary roles.

The following IT operating data is used in the One Identity Manager default configuration for automatically creating user accounts for an identity in the target system and modifying them.

  • Groups can be inherited

  • Identity

  • Privileged user account.

To create a mapping rule for IT operating data

  1. In the Manager, select the Oracle E-Business Suite > Basic configuration data > Account definitions > Account definitions category.

  2. Select an account definition in the result list.

  3. Select the Edit IT operating data mapping task.

  4. Click Add and enter the following information:

    • Column: User account property for which the value is set. In the menu, you can select the columns that use the TSB_ITDataFromOrg script in their template. For more information about this, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

    • Source: Specifies which roles to use in order to find the user account properties. You have the following options:

      • Primary department

      • Primary location

      • Primary cost center

      • Primary business roles

        NOTE: The business role can only be used if the Business Roles Module is available.

      • Empty

        If you select a role, you must specify a default value and set the Always use default value option.

    • Default value: Default value of the property for an identity's user account if the value is not determined dynamically from the IT operating data.

    • Always use default value: Specifies whether the user account property is always set with the default value. IT operating data is not determined dynamically from a role.

    • Notify when applying the default: Specifies whether an email is sent to a specific mailbox when the default value is used. The Identity - new user account with default properties created mail template is used.

      To change the mail template, in the Designer, adjust the TargetSystem | EBS | Accounts | MailTemplateDefaultValues configuration parameter.
