Installation of CzechIdM - Final steps

First of all, activate the module acc in SettingsModules by clicking on the button Activate.

If you want to try CzechIdM account management without directly connecting some system, you could start with the Virtual systems. To use this, activate the module vs at SettingsModules by clicking on the button Activate.

Sending of e-mails is turned off by default; the e-mails are only logged in the NotificationsE-mails history. However, when you start to use CzechIdM, some processes should be able to notify the users. Configure the following:

Go to Settings → Password policies and set the password policy according to your security standards.

If you want to use Maximum password age, you will probably want to notify users when their passwords are going to expire. To do so, schedule the tasks PasswordExpirationWarningTaskExecutor (notify users before the password expiration) and PasswordExpiredTaskExecutor (notify users when their password expired).

In the fresh installation, users without any assigned role can do nothing after logging into CzechIdM.

Typically, you want to enable the users to see their profile, request for roles or change their password. This is done by a special role called userRole. Create the role and add Permissions to it. Recommended settings is written in the example permissions for userRole.

Manual role assignment is always done by role requests. In the fresh installation, the requests will be automatically approved, because no approvers are set yet.

If you want to enable users to request a role change, you should also set some approval processes for their requests. The configuration options are described here.

Managers and guarantees of the contracts can be included in the approval process or they could manage their subordinates (if you set it in the userRole). If you use these features, make sure that CzechIdM uses a correct algorithm for evaluating managers and subordinates relationship.

The default algorithm evaluates the managers/subordinates by their position in the organizational structure and also includes directly set guarantees. This is set by DefaultManagersFilter and DefaultSubordinatesFilter.

Example:

## identity filters
## subordinates by standard tree structure (manager will be found by contract on parent node)
idm.sec.core.filter.IdmIdentity.managersFor.impl=defaultManagersFilter
idm.sec.core.filter.IdmIdentity.subordinatesFor.impl=defaultSubordinatesFilter

If you don't want to use organizational structure for evaluating the managers - typically if it's the structure of departments and the managers and subordinates are at the same level in the structure - use rather GuaranteeManagersFilter and GuaranteeSubordinatesFilter.

Example:

## identity filters
idm.sec.core.filter.IdmIdentity.managersFor.impl=guaranteeManagersFilter
idm.sec.core.filter.IdmIdentity.subordinatesFor.impl=guaranteeSubordinatesFilter

Configure subordinates provisioning

Sometimes, we provision some details about the manager to the identity accounts. E.g. the attribute "manager" in Active Directory is the link to the user's manager. To make this link up-to-date, IdM does provisioning for new and original subordinates of the manager every time, when the manager's contract changes.

If you don't need this functionality, which can be time consuming, switch it off like this:

idm.sec.acc.processor.identity-contract-provisioning-processor.includeSubordinates=false
idm.sec.acc.processor.identity-contract-before-save-processor.includeSubordinates=false

Review the scheduled tasks in SettingsTask scheduler.

By default, connected system's synchronization is not scheduled. To do so, you have to add it. Add a new scheduled task SynchronizationSchedulableTaskExecutor, fill in the Synchronization uuid which you can find by opening a synchronization of your system in the URL of the page following synchronization-configs. So, if you have a URL "http://localhost:8080/idm/#/system/f5h4bd76-9218-5fz8-7e5u-0ds772ag968u/synchronization-configs/94b6thj6-2nb1-84g2-sfd2-dgd4f99adsf24/detail?_k=uct1ra", the UID is "94b6thj6-2nb1-84g2-sfd2-dgd4f99adsf24". Save the event and click Add under Scheduled starts. To run the event periodically, set a CRON trigger.

If you don't want to automatically delete old records in the provisioning archive, remove scheduled run from the DeleteProvisioningArchiveTaskExecutor.

If you want to use validity of the contracts and standard HR processes in CzechIdM, make sure that HR processes will be started every day. There are 2 options:

  • Schedule the Hr…Process tasks.
  • Ensure that synchronization of contracts from some resource will run every day and the "After end, start the HR processes" option is ticked in the configuration of this synchronization.
Start the 3 Hr…Processs tasks at least once manually, otherwise they won't be started after end of synchronization.

If you want to use the Account protection system for some connected system, you must schedule the AccountProtectionExpirationTaskExecutor to start once every day.

If you want to use Maximum password age, schedule the tasks mentioned in Password policy section to run once every day.
