Ori Pomerantz's guide on creating delegated approval workflows in Identity Manager is now on dW Learn how to assignn responsibility for approvals and collect documentation to support approval decisions
In the whitepaper, Pomerantz covers the following instructions:
As part of the design phase, how to delegate a decision that requires approval or rejection (for example, whether a service owner should clear or reject provisioning requests). This includes the requirements for the workflow and the approach for creating the workflow (adding a request for information node (RFI) to the limited boolean decision node (accept or reject).
Exploring the data structure of an RFI node. How to repurpose existing attributes of the other entity types to define RFI node fields (Decision, Approver, Justification).
Writing the actual workflow by adding relevant data variables, constructing or importing an RFI node, testing the RFI node, adding an approval node for a select delegate, adding manager approval, and asking for and displaying account justification.
Pomerantz also takes you on a short tour of how to move from prototype to production.
