A resource is any digital entity such as a user account, computer, or database that a business user needs to be able to access. The User Application provides a convenient way for end users to request the resources they need. In addition, it provides tools that administrators can use to define resources. Each resource is mapped to an entitlement. A resource definition can have no more than one entitlement bound to it. A resource definition can be bound to the same entitlement more than once, with different entitlement parameters for each resource.
