In version 5.0, IBM® Tivoli® Identity Manager (ITIM) introduces several new features to enhance its request-based provisioning model. Request-based provisioning allows users to request access to enterprise resources via a self-service interface. To better abstract the user from the details of the IT systems, ITIM 5.0 allows a user to request a role assignment. This greatly increases the flexibility of the request-based provisioning model,because a role can be associated with multiple entitlements. This article discusses a number of use cases for the request-based role assignment and demonstrate how these use cases can be realized via ITIM.
