Granting Access to Resources by Location

You can delegate to any EmpowerID actor access to all of the resources of a particular resource type scoped by the location of those resources. This topic demonstrates how to do so by granting access to an EmpowerID Person.

To delegate access to resources by location

  1. From the Navigation Sidebar, navigate to the Delegations management page by expanding Identities and clicking Manage Delegations.
  2. Select Person from the To which type of actor do you wish to assign access? drop-down, type the name of the person to whom you are delegating access in the Which person needs access? field and then click the tile for that person.
  3. Select the Actor Delegations tab.
  4. Select By Location from the Assignment Type drop-down.
  5. Click the Add Access Assignments (+) button located in the grid header.
  6. In the Select the resource(s) to grant access to dialog that appears, do the following:
    1. From the Resource Type drop-down, select the resource type for the resource you are giving the person. For example, if you are giving the person access to a security group, you select Group (Security).
    2. Underneath For Resources In or Below click the Select a Location link and in the Location Selector that appears, do the following:
      1. Type the location to which you wish to scope the assignment in the search field and press ENTER.
      2. Click the location in the tree to select it and then click Save to close the Location Selector.
    3. Select the specific access you want to give the person from the Access Level drop-down. For example, if you want to give the person the ability to control group membership for all groups within the assignment scope, you select Access Manager.
    4. Optionally, if you want to limit the access to a specified period of time, tick Time Constraint and select the appropriate dates from the Access Begins and Access Ends fields. Please note that clicking these fields opens a Calendar control for selecting the dates.
    5. Click Save to add the assignment to the shopping cart.
  7. Repeat step 5 above for each type of access assignment you want to make for the person.
  8. When you have finished adding access assignments, click the Shopping Cart at the top of the page, type a reason for the assignment and then click Submit.
  9. Once the workflow processes the request, if no approval is needed, you should see the assignment(s) in the grid.
