Role Management Tool

A Role management tool is software that can help automate some or all of the tasks involved in role management.

Hitachi ID Identity Manager includes entitlement analytics that can be used to aid in the development of a role model. For example, a built-in report allows an authorized user to find all users with a given set of attributes (e.g., manager=X, location=Y, jobcode=Z, etc.) and to compare their login IDs and group memberships on every integrated system. If the entitlements are consistent, then the set of entitlements shared by these users are a good candidate for a role, to be assigned to these users.

This type of entitlements comparison is illustrated in Figure [link].
