Role Mining Read our definition of Role Mining

Role mining is another term for entitlement analytics.

People sometimes refer to "bottom-up" role mining -- meaning an analysis that begins with searches for sets of entitlements that are frequently assigned to the same users, and subsequently an attempt to see if those users share common identity attributes.

Alternately, sometimes refer to "top-down" role mining -- meaning an analysis that begins with searches for users with shared identity attributes, followed by an analysis of their security entitlements, to see if they are the same.
