Article summary

The Under-Provisioned Detector is a background process that runs every hour on the hour. This process checks each of your Identities, and detects if they are missing any Entitlements from their Roles. If access is detected to be missing, this will trigger the UnderProvisioned Identity Detected workflow action which can be configured to automatically provsion access defined by your Role Based Access Control configuration (See Interaction with workflows section below for more details).


Manually trigger the process

While this background process runs on a predetermined schedule (hourly, on the hour) you can trigger this to run manually, either on all of your roles, or on an individual role.

For all roles

To run this process manually for all roles in your tenant, you simply need to head to the Roles section of Clarity (from the menu on the left), and look for the Run Under-Provisioned Detector button in the top right of that page.

For an individual role

To run this process manually for an individual role, you simply need to head to the Roles section of Clarity (from the menu on the left), navigate to the role you want to perform this action against, and click on it. This should bring you to the page for this particular role, then look for the Run Under-Provisioned Checker button in the top right of this page.

Individual Role Under-Provisioned Detector

Interaction with workflows

The hourly background process detects if access is missing for your Identities based on their Role Based Access Control. If you would like Clarity to automatically attempt to provision any access that is found to be missing, that is where the Under-Provisioned Detector Workflow gets triggered. With this workflow configured as below in the screenshot, Clarity will provision the missing Entitlements to the Identity.

For example if you have 30 Entitlements as part of your Development/Senior Developer role, but Sam McClarity (a member of the "Development" department with Job Title "Senior Developer") is missing 5 of those Entitlements. The hourly background process would pick up that Sam McClarity is missing entitlements from their role, and then provision those 5 missing entitlements. Sam should now be at 30/30 Entitlements provided next time the Under-Provosioned Detector runs in 1 hour.

Tips on this workflow

If you want to restrict Clarity to provisioning missing entitlements for particular departments, job titles, etc., you could add a Condition (type: Identity Attributes) to this workflow and configure as needed.
