Common use cases

Example 1: Entitlements with a monetary value. Utilize the tag feature to label entitlements from your Downstream Applications which per use paid access (licenses, subscriptions, etc). This is a great item to review, to help make sure employees in your organization do not have paid licenses they don't need.

Example 2: Top level Administrative Access. Create a custom entitlement to apply to all of the Entitlements which represent the highest level of access in an application (Domain Admin in Active Directory, etc). This is a very important type of access to review regularly.

Example 3: Create a custom tag to represent the Entitlements for an application whose access is managed in another application. An example of this is using Active Directory groups to manage access to another application.

Special notes

Deleting Tags

At this time, you are unable to delete tags from Clarity. It is recommended that you simply remove everything from the existing tag (based on its original purpose), and use the Edit tag option described above to repurpose the tag.
