Mapping Groups to Business Roles and Locations

EmpowerID allows you to easily create a mapping between a Business Role and Location and groups. In this way, you can quickly assign all members of a specific group to a Business Role and Location. Then whenever someone is added to a group, that person is automatically assigned to the mapped Business Role and Location, receiving any RETs or Policy-Based Attribute Values assigned to the Business Role and Location.

Prerequisites: To map groups to Business Roles and Locations, EmpowerID must be connected to an external directory with groups like Active Directory.

To map groups to Business Roles and Locations

  1. From the Navigation Sidebar of the EmpowerID Web interface, navigate to the Business Roles and Locations management page by expanding Identities and clicking Business Roles.
  2. From the Business Roles and Locations tab of the Business Roles and Locations management page, search for the Business Role and Location for which you want to create a group mapping.
  3. From the tree-views, click the nodes for the Business Role and the Location to select them.
  4. Click the Mapped Groups (Group Members Become Role Assignees) accordion to expand it.
  5. Type the name of the group you want to map to the Business Role and Location and then click the tile for that group.
  6. Repeat step 5 for each group you want to map to the Business Role and Location.
  7. When you have completed adding groups, click Submit.
  8. Before submitting the assignment, you can review the groups being mapped to the Business Role and Location, by clicking the Added flag. If you want to remove the mapping, click the X to the right of that group. You can also submit the assignment from here by clicking the Submit button.

  9. Click OK to close the Operation Execution Summary.
  10. You should see the newly mapped group show in the Mapped Groups (Group Members Become Role Assignees) grid.
