Assigning extended properties to SharePoint groups

Extended properties are meta objects, such as operating codes, cost codes, or cost accounting areas that cannot be mapped directly in One Identity Manager.

For more information about setting up extended properties, see the One Identity Manager Identity Management Base Module Administration Guide.

To specify extended properties for a group

  1. In the Manager, select the SharePoint > Groups category.

  2. Select the group in the result list.

  3. Select Assign extended properties.

  4. In the Add assignments pane, assign extended properties.

    TIP: In the Remove assignments pane, you can remove assigned extended properties.

    To remove an assignment

    • Select the extended property and double-click .

  5. Save the changes.

Deleting SharePoint groups

To delete a group

  1. Select the SharePoint > Groups category.
  2. Select the group in the result list.
  3. Click to delete the group.
  4. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

The group is deleted completely from the One Identity Manager database and from SharePoint.

Default solutions for requesting SharePoint groups

In One Identity Manager, standard products and default approval workflows are provided for requesting SharePoint groups and membership in these groups through the IT Shop. Permissions in this target system are therefore issued by defined approval processes.

For more information about this, see the One Identity Manager Web Designer Web Portal User Guide.

Detailed information about this topic

Adding SharePoint groups

New SharePoint groups can be created in the SharePoint environment by a request for this standard product. The requester provides information about the name and site collection, if known, of the request. Based on this information, the target system manager specifies the container, in which the group will be added and grants approval for the request. The group is created in One Identity Manager and published to the target system.


  • Identities are assigned to the Target systems | SharePoint application role.

If the QER | ITShop | AutoPublish | SPSGroup configuration parameter is set, the group is added to the IT Shop and the assigned to the Identity & Access Lifecycle | SharePoint groups shelf. The group is assigned to the existing service category.
