Working with Roles

The role management interface can be found in Webconsole->Roles. Using this interface, you can create new roles and maintain existing ones. OpenIAM supports the creation of Business Roles and Technical Roles.

  • Technical roles: represent roles in an application that you are modeling. For example, if you want to represent the Oracle DB role in OpenIAM, then these would be considered Technical roles.
  • Business roles: represent a collection of Technical roles and other entitlements which are generally needed to perform a job function.

The following sections provide details about the capabilities found in the Role Manager.
