The Autonomous Identity UI

Autonomous Identity provides a powerful UI dashboard, displaying all of your entitlements, attributes, and confidence scores across your company. The UI provides different filtered levels of information depending on the user’s access rights.

Dashboard

The Dashboard, also known as the Company Overview, provides a complete summary of your organizations’s entitlements, confidences scores, and entitlement assignments. Only admin users and executives can view this page. The page also shows the trend lines of your confidence score history over time plus a list of the Most Critical Entitlements.

Dashboard

The Dashboard is partitioned into several modules as you scroll down:

  • Model Coverage. Displays data on model coverage and confidence scoring of the assigned entitlements. The section summarizes the total number of entitlements processed by Autonomous Identity, and the number and percentage of those entitlements that were covered and not covered by the system. The section also displays a summary of entitlement assignments, specifically the number of High Confidence Assignments (90% and above), Low Confidence Assignments (20% and below), total assignments, and number of unscored entitlements. "Unscored" indicates that Autonomous Identity could not learn any patterns for a specific entitlement to properly assign a confidence score to it.

  • Confidence Score Distribution of Entitlements. Displays a histogram of the distribution of confidence scores across your entitlements landscape. The chart provides a good summary of the current state of your entitlements landscape. In general, you want to set up your high confidence-scoring entitlements as candidates for automated approval and certification. You also want to move a good percentage of your middle level confidence scores to high confidence entitlements.

  • User Type. Displays a summary of users versus non-users covered by the system.

  • Most Critical Entitlements. Displays the list of the most critical entitlements with the low average confidence scores and the number of employees assigned with the entitlement. You can drill down to view each entitlement, where you can approve or remove access to the entitlement for that user.

  • All Entitlements Distribution. Displays the number of one-to-one matching and the highly assigned entitlements to distinct users.

    • One-to-one matching indicates the number of entitlement assigned to one user only.

    • Highly Assigned indicates the number of entitlements assigned to a number of distinct users listed below. These highly-assigned entitlements are good candidates for automated access approval or certification using policies or roles.

    • Graph of All Entitlements Distribution displays a chart of the number of entitlements versus the number of users. The number range on the left (e.g., 0-5) indicate the number of entitlements assigned. The number on the right indicates the actual number of users. Thus, in the image below, there are 207 users who have 0-5 assigned entitlements. In the second row from the bottom, there are 979 users who have between 5-10 assigned entitlements. In the third row from the bottom, there are 1451 users who have between 10-100 assigned entitlements. In the fourth row from the bottom, there are 33 users who have betwen 100-1000 assigned entitlements.

  • History of Assignment Confidence Scores. Displays a history of assigned confidence scores (high, medium, and low) over the past year (in months) versus the number of assignments. The time range on the x-axis shows the month and year for a specific range of assignments. This graph shows the confidence score trends over time and indicates how well you are managing your entitlements. In general, you want rising high and mid confidence scores and decreasing low score trends.

Identities

The Identities page displays a supervisor-based view of all users reporting to a specific supervisor and their entitlements. Admin users can see all supervisors and their users, while supervisors can only view their direct reports.
