Adding account definitions in the IT Shop

An account definition can be requested by shop customers when it is assigned to an IT Shop shelf. To ensure it can be requested, further prerequisites need to be guaranteed.

  • The account definition must be labeled with the IT Shop option.

  • The account definition must be assigned to a service item.

    TIP: In the Web Portal, all products that can be requested are grouped together by service category. To make the account definition easier to find in the Web Portal, assign a service category to the service item.

  • If the account definition is only assigned to identities using IT Shop assignments, you must also set the Only for use in IT Shop option. Direct assignment to hierarchical roles may not be possible.

NOTE: IT Shop administrators can assign account definitions to IT Shop shelves if login is role-based. Target system administrators are not authorized to add account definitions in the IT Shop.

Assigning identities automatically to E-Business Suite user accounts

When you add a user account, an existing identity can automatically be assigned to it. This mechanism can be triggered after a new user account is created either manually or through synchronization.

Define criteria for finding identities to apply to automatic identity assignment. If a user account is linked to an identity through the current mode, the user account is given, through an internal process, the default manage level of the account definition entered in the user account's target system. You can customize user account properties depending on how the behavior of the manage level is defined.

If you run this procedure during working hours, automatic assignment of identities to user accounts takes place from that moment onwards. If you disable the procedure again later, the changes only affect user accounts added or updated after this point in time. Existing identity assignments to user accounts remain intact.

NOTE: It is not recommended to assign identities using automatic identity assignment in the case of administrative user accounts. Use Change main data to assign identities to administrative user accounts for the respective user account.

For more information about assigning identities automatically, see the One Identity Manager Target System Base Module Administration Guide.

Run the following tasks to assign identities automatically.

  • If you want identities to be assigned during the synchronization of user accounts, in the Designer, set the TargetSystem | EBS | PersonAutoFullsync configuration parameter and select the required mode.

  • If you want identities to be assigned outside synchronization, in the Designer, set the TargetSystem | EBS | PersonAutoDefault configuration parameter and select the required mode.

  • In the TargetSystem | EBS | PersonExcludeList configuration parameter, define the user accounts for which no automatic assignment to identities shall take place.

    Example:

    ANONYMOUS|SYSADMIN|AUTOINSTALL|INITIAL SETUP|FEEDER SYSTEM|CONCURRENT

    TIP: You can edit the value of the configuration parameter in the Exclude list for automatic identity assignment dialog.

  • Use the TargetSystem | EBS | PersonAutoDisabledAccounts configuration parameter to specify whether identities can be automatically assigned to disabled user accounts. User accounts do not obtain an account definition.

  • Assign an account definition to the E-Business Suite system. Ensure that the manage level to be used is entered as the default manage level.

  • Define the search criteria for identity assignment to this system.

NOTE:

The following applies for synchronization:

  • Automatic identity assignment takes effect if user accounts are added or updated.

The following applies outside synchronization:

  • Automatic identity assignment takes effect if user accounts are added.
