Assign privileges

In the SecureAuth Identity Store, use privileges to grant access to users. You can assign privileges directly to a user identity or a group.

For example, a privilege can be an out-of-the box default privilege like Admin, or dynamic privileges like IDS Employees Admin dynamic privilege (admin privileges to manage Employee identity store settings) or Group CashiersHoliday group privilege (group privileges to manage the CashiersHoliday group settings).

What you need to know

By default, the Identity Store comes with a set of system privileges like Admin, User, and Developer. To learn more about system privileges, see SecureAuth Identity Store definitions.

Each time you add a new group, it automatically creates a dynamic privilege in this name format: Group <name of group> dynamic privilege. For example, the CashiersHoliday group has a dynamic privilege named: Group CashiersHoliday dynamic privilege.

Also, when you create a secondary identity store, it automatically creates two dynamic privileges - an admin privilege to manage the identity store settings and a user privilege to manage users within that identity store. The dynamic privileges follow the same format: IDS <identity store name> Admin dynamic privilege and IDS <name of identity store> User dynamic privilege.
