Assigning company resources to workdesks

One Identity Manager uses different assignment types to assign company resources.

  • Indirect assignment

    In the case of indirect assignment of company resources, identities, devices, and workdesks are arranged in departments, cost centers, locations, business roles, or application roles. The total of assigned company resources for an identity, device, or workdesk is calculated from the position within the hierarchies, the direction of inheritance (top-down or bottom-up) and the company resources assigned to these roles. In the Indirect assignment methods a difference between primary and secondary assignment is taken into account.

  • Direct assignment

    Direct assignment of company resources results from the assignment of a company resource to an identity, device, or workdesk, for example. Direct assignment of company resources makes it easier to react to special requirements.

  • Assignment by dynamic roles

    Assignment through dynamic roles is a special case of indirect assignment. Dynamic roles are used to specify role memberships dynamically. Identities, devices, and workdesks are not permanently assigned to a role, just when they fulfill certain conditions. A check is performed regularly to assess which identities, devices, or workdesks fulfill these conditions. This means the role memberships change dynamically. For example, company resources can be assigned dynamically to all identities in a department in this way; if an identity leaves the department they immediately lose the resources assigned to them.

  • Assignment by request

    Assignment through the IT Shop is a special case of indirect assignment. Add identities to a shop as customers so that company resources can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All company resources assigned as product to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested company resources are assigned to the identities after approval is granted. Role memberships can be requested through the IT Shop as well as company resources.

    For more information about requests for workdesks, see the One Identity Manager IT Shop Administration Guide and the One Identity Manager Web Portal User Guide.

The following table shows the possible company resources assignments to workdesks.

NOTE: Company resources are defined in One Identity Manager modules and are not available until the modules are installed.
