17.8 Activating Technical Roles

After you have added permissions to a technical role definition, and promoted the role candidate, you can see an estimate of the number of users holding the permissions of the technical role, and you can activate the technical role. If you do not activate the technical role, Identity Governance does not identify the users that hold the permissions in the technical role.

NOTE:Mined technical roles are created in a candidate state and must be promoted before they can be activated and published. You can promote roles individually or select one or more roles and select Actions > Promote candidates.

To activate technical roles:

  1. Log in as a Customer, Global, or Technical Roles Administrator.

  2. Under Catalog, select Roles.

  3. Select one or more roles from the list, then select Actions > Activate.

  4. Alternately, you can select a role name and click Edit.

  5. In the role definition, select Active.

Activating and deactivating a technical role both start a detection process and result in automatic updates in the catalog.
