Creating Business Role and Location Combinations

In EmpowerID, Business Role and Location Combinations are special objects comprised of a Business Role, such as "Contractor" or "Standard Employee," and an location, such as "All Business Locations" or "Boston," that can be used to facilitate the creation of new people (i.e., assigning them to a Business Role and Location during the onboarding process), moving people and the assignment of resources through role-based delegations.

Prerequisites: In order to create a Business Role and Location combination, the Business Role and the Location you are combining must exist in EmpowerID. In addition, if the Location is to be used for directory-based assignments, EmpowerID should be connected to an external directory like Active Directory and your external directory OUs should be mapped to EmpowerID logical locations.

To create a Business Role and Location combination

  1. From the Navigation Sidebar, navigate to the Business Roles and Locations management page by expanding Identities and clicking Business Roles and Locations.
  2. From the Business Roles and Locations management page, click the Business Roles tab, search for the specific role you want to combine with a location and then click the Display Name link for that role.
  3. This opens the View One page for the Business Role. View One pages allow you to view details about an object in EmpowerID and make changes to those objects as needed.

  4. From the View One page, expand the Editable Multivalued Fields accordion and then click the Edit link in the Allowed Location Combinations pane.
  5. Click the Select a Location link and in the Location Selector that appears, search for and select the desired EmpowerID location and then click Save to close the Location Selector.
  6. Back in the Allowed Location Combinations pane, click the Save link.
