Assigning Apps From a Source

Assigning Apps From a Source

After loading user accounts from an application source, you can configure the related application to automatically appear on account owners' Launchpads or Home pages. You can provide apps for all users from an account source, or for a set of specific users.

 

Prerequisite: Load accounts from at least one source.

 

Assigning Apps to Specific Users

To configure the related application to automatically appear on specific account owners' Launchpads or Home page, create an access profile. An access profile defines a group of one or more entitlements that grants a specific set of access rights to users for an application. If a user has all of the entitlements in one of the access profiles assigned to the app, the app is added to their Launchpad or Home page automatically.

 

Complete the following steps:

1. In the Admin interface, go to Applications and click the app you want to appear for account owners.

 

2. In the Configuration tab, under App Accounts Created By, select Admin (IT) to display the Account Source panel

 

3. Select Specific Users From Source.

4. In Select Source, select the source that the user accounts will come from and click Save.

NOTES:

  • If the Password Management feature in IdentityNow is enabled and you do not have SSO, you can only select sources that have Password Management enabled.
  • If you need to make changes to the source you have selected, click the Edit icon to the right of the field.

 

5. Click the Edit icon next to Specific Users From Source, or click the Access tab for the app.

 

6. Select one or more access profiles, or create a new access profile and click Save.

Any users who have one or more of the access profiles assigned to this app can see this app on their Launchpads when the system finishes refreshing the related identity data. 

NOTE: If you choose more than one access profile for the app, identities only need to have one of the access profiles to see the app on their Launchpads.

 

Assigning Apps to All Users

Sometimes, instead of assigning specific access profiles to apps, you may need to grant access to all users with an account on the app source.

 

Complete the following steps:

1. In the Admin interface, go to Applications and click the app you want to appear for account owners.

 

2. In the Configuration tab, under App Accounts Created By, select Admin (IT) to display the Account Source panel.

 

3. Select All Users From Source.

NOTE: If you select this option, the app will not appear in the Request Center for:

    • Users who don't meet this criteria.
    • If you are using directory password for SSO, users who are not also part of the selected authentication source.

4. In Select Source, select the source that the user accounts will come from and click Save.

NOTE: If the Password Management feature in IdentityNow is enabled and you do not have SSO, you can only select sources that have Password Management enabled.

The accounts for the application are updated based on the source you selected. Any user with an account on the source will see the related app tile on their Launchpad after the system finishes refreshing related identity data.
