MyIdentityGraph supports the delegation of your permissions to another person. In that case the other person inherits all your permissions to resources.
The following use case describes the creation of a “delegate” edge. In that case Saskia delegates her permissions to Delgado who in turn gets read permission to Ron’s UserProfileData. Remember that Saskia was granted access to Ron’s UserProfileData in the preceding chapter.
- Select “Accumulate Graph” from the “More” menu
- Select “Query Me” and then select “Person by UserID”
- Click on your person node, then the “hand” icon (see image)
- Connect your person node to the other person which should be your delegate
Confirm the modal window
An additional use case demonstrates how 2-hop delegations are reflected in the MyIdentityGraph model:
Consider the case that Delgado itself has a valid permission delegation to Carol as depicted in the image below.
