10.0 Managing the Organization Chart

The Identity Manager Dashboard gives you a convenient way to search for an entity in your organization and view its organization chart (an entity can be a user, group, or custom entity defined by your administrator). An organization chart shows the hierarchy of relationships, such as Manager-Employee, Mentor-Employee, Group’s membership, or User groups among entities in your organization.

By default, the Organization Chart page in the Dashboard shows the placement of a user entity within the organization and its relationship hierarchy with other user entities based on the organization chart relationship set by the administrator. For more information on default settings for organization chart page, see Customizing the Views in NetIQ Identity Manager - Administrator’s Guide to the Identity Applications. For more information on how to view organization chart of entities other than user entity, see Viewing the Organization Chart of an Object in the NetIQ Identity Manager - Administrator’s Guide to the Identity Applications.

The organization chart is often referred as “org chart”. You may find both these terminologies used in the Dashboard.
