We have installed IdM 8.0 and would now like to start using Business Roles.

At the moment we are assigning privileges directly to identities. What do I need to know before implementing business roles and how do I go about building business roles.

Hi Sarah,

That's a pretty broad topic which basically has a few items to be considered?

  • What systems will you be supporting
  • How are you defining roles and privileges in IDM
  • Will approvals be involved
  • Are you going for more of an SAP approach of Role = Entitlement, or Role = collection of entitlements (SAP IDM Privileges) somewhat like the Composite BASIS concept.

I'd suggest taking a look at the IDM 7.2 documentation, in the roles section. ( The concepts carry over and will give you things to think about.

The general IDM 8.0 documentation will probably be helpful as well.
