When you configure an application for SSO, you can also configure some application connectors to enable user account creation and management. When you enable user account management, you can configure settings to create new user accounts automatically or by using a workflow. You must select one or the other option. If you use a workflow, the workflow settings specify the correct number of approvals that are necessary to create user accounts. When all the approvals are received, App Controller creates the user account.
If an application is available for user account management, after you configure the URL and licenses, you click Next to configure the settings for creating user accounts, including workflow settings. If an application is not available for user account management, the check box does not appear when you configure the URL and license information.
After you configure the application to enable user account creation and management, you can synchronize the application accounts with Active Directory. When you synchronize application accounts, App Controller uses the users' Active Directory credentials for SSO to the application.
When you configure an application that allows for user account management, you can have App Controller create the user accounts automatically or you can configure a workflow to have user account creation approved by individuals in your organization.
When you choose to create an account automatically, you can also choose the action to take when the account is not longer needed. For example, if a user is temporarily away from the organization, you can select to disable the account until the user returns. If a user has left the organization permanently, you can select to delete the account.
The service account is the administrator account for the application.
For example, select Last name. The default parameter is Email address.
For example, if you select 7, the user name is the first seven letters of the users' last name. The default setting is All. When you select these two parameters, the Rule field populates automatically.
To find the name of an approver, you can enter a first or last name in the fields provided. You can also enter partial names. When the user appears in the text box, select the user and then click the plus (+) sign.
