5.0 Mapping Authorizations

Most companies define their business policies through authorization assignments. Examples of authorizations are groups, roles, and profiles. These authorizations are different depending on each SaaS application. For more information, see Section 5.1, Authorizations.

Authorizations give users access to resources. Access Gateway for Cloud provides a simple solution that allows you to map your Active Directory groups to the SaaS application authorizations and approve or deny access to these authorizations.

The PolicyMapping page maps the authorizations between Active Directory and the SaaS applications and allows you to select whether the authorization requires an approval or not. The Approval page allows you to accept or deny the authorization request.
