There are many ways how to assign roles, orgs and services. Many roles are assigned using a manual or partially-manual process. But there is almost always some degree of automation when at least some roles are assigned to users according to fixed rules. This page describes the mechanism to automatically assign roles in midPoint.
Perhaps the most convenient way to automatically assign a role is to use autoassignment condition in a role:
<role> <name>Intern</name> ... <autoassign> <enabled>true</enabled> <focus> <mapping> <source> <path>employeeType</path> </source> <condition> <script> <code>employeeType == 'intern'</code> </script> </condition> </mapping> </focus> </autoassign> </role>
The role above will be automatically assigned to any user that has property
employeeType set to
intern. As all midPoint mapping even this mapping is relativistic. If user becomes an intern (the
employeeType property is changed) then the role is automatically assigned. When the user stops being an intern the role is unassigned.
See Role Autoassign Configuration page for more details.
