Autonomous Identity User Types

Autonomous Identity recognizes six different user types, or personas, within its system. Each user type has access to certain pages on the Autonomous Identity console.

  • Admin. An Admin user is similar to the notion of a system administration superuser within Autonomous Identity. Admins have access to every Autonomous Identity page view within the console. The Admin user can view the list of critical entitlements, approve or revoke access, and run other tasks.

  • Executive. An Executive user is a senior manager within a company. Executives have access to the Autonomous Identity company overview page, critical entitlements, employee page, user entitlements page, but cannot approve or revoke access, or certify entitlements to users.

  • Supervisor. A Supervisor user is one who has responsibility of other users or things and grants access to resources for these users. Supervisors can only see the entitlements of those users who report to them. They cannot view the entitlement assignments of users who report to another supervisor. Supervisors can certify entitlements assigned to users, entitlements to unscored users, and approve or revoke access.

  • Application Owner. An application owner is any person or thing that owns an application and every entitlement within that application. A single entitlement can have an entitlement owner and an application owner. The application owner can have the permissions to approve, auto-certify entitlement assignments, and approve or revoke rule justifications.

  • Entitlement Owner. An Entitlement Owner is one who has the ability to grant access to entitlements that they manage to other users. Entitlement owners can only view the entitlements that they have created. Entitlement owners can certify the entitlements that they manage, users to these entitlements, and approve or revoke access to these entitlements.

  • Role Auditor. A Role Auditor
