Target system managers

A default application role exists for the target system manager in One Identity Manager. Assign identities to this application role who have permission to edit all tenants in One Identity Manager.

Define additional application roles if you want to limit the permissions for target system managers to individual tenants. The application roles must be added under the default application role.

For more information about implementing and editing application roles, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

Implementing application roles for target system managers
  1. The One Identity Manager administrator allocates identities to be target system administrators.

  2. These target system administrators add identities to the default application role for target system managers.

    Target system managers with the default application role are authorized to edit all the tenants in One Identity Manager.

  3. Target system managers can authorize other identities within their area of responsibility as target system managers and if necessary, create additional child application roles and assign these to individual tenants.

Table 34: Default application roles for target system managers
User Tasks

Target system managers

 

Target system managers must be assigned to the Target systems | SharePoint Online application role or a child application role.

Users with this application role:

  • Assume administrative tasks for the target system.

  • Create, change, or delete target system objects.

  • Edit password policies for the target system.

  • Prepare groups to add to the IT Shop.

  • Can add identities that do not have the Primary identity identity type.

  • Configure synchronization in the Synchronization Editor and define the mapping for comparing target systems and One Identity Manager.

  • Edit the synchronization's target system types and outstanding objects.

  • Authorize other identities within their area of responsibility as target system managers and create child application roles if required.

To initially specify identities to be target system administrators

  1. Log in to the Manager as a One Identity Manager administrator (Base role | Administrators application role)

  2. Select the One Identity Manager Administration > Target systems > Administrators category.

  3. Select the Assign identities task.

  4. Assign the identity and save the changes.

To add the first identities to the default application as target system managers

  1. Log in to the Manager as a target system administrator (Target systems | Administrators application role).

  2. Select the One Identity Manager Administration > Target systems > SharePoint Online category.

  3. Select the Assign identities task.

  4. Assign the identities you want and save the changes.

To authorize other identities as target system managers when you are a target system manager

  1. Log in to the Manager as a target system manager.

  2. Select the application role in the SharePoint Online > Basic configuration data > Target system managers category.

  3. Select the Assign identities task.

  4. Assign the identities you want and save the changes.

To specify target system managers for individual tenants

  1. Log in to the Manager as a target system manager.

  2. Select the SharePoint Online > Tenants category.

  3. Select the tenant in the result list.

  4. Select the Change main data task.

  5. On the General tab, select the application role in the Target system manager menu.

    - OR -

    Next to the Target system manager menu, click to create a new application role.

    1. Enter the application role name and assign the Target systems | SharePoint Online parent application role.

Troubleshooting a SharePoint Online connection

Error synchronizing after renaming a SharePoint Online site collection

After renaming a site collection in SharePoint Online that has already been read into the One Identity Manager database, synchronization fails with an error message.

Probable reason

In the synchronization project's scope, the site collection's old name is still referenced.

Solution
  • Correct the synchronization project's scope and select the site collection whose URL contains the new name.
