Data Synced from OfficeRnD to Identity Enterprise

User Account

  • When a new user is created in OfficeRnD, they will also be created automatically in Identity Enterprise. 
    • The user status will be Pending.
    • Identity Enterprise will automatically send an invitation email to the user, and they can follow the steps in the invitation email to activate their account.
  • When a user is deleted from OfficeRnD, they will be deactivated automatically in Identity Enterprise and will no longer be able to access the resources assigned to them.
  • When a user’s email address is changed in OfficeRnd, Identity Enterprise will not update the user’s email address. Instead, a new user with the updated email address will be created in Identity Enterprise, and they will receive an invitation email to activate their account. For security concerns, please deactivate the Identity Enterprise user with the old email.

Note: If a username in OfficeRnD contains a space (e.g., Edward Smith), Identity Enterprise automatically recognizes the first part (i.e., Edward) as the first name, and the second part (i.e., Smith) as the last name.

Reservation Information

  • When a reservation is made or changed in OfficeRnD, an access policy and schedule will also be created in your Identity Enterprise Manager > Services > Door Access > Sites > select a site > Policy.
    • The naming rule for an access policy is “OfficeRnD + booking reference number”.
    • Users who are added to a reserved event on OfficeRnD are synced to the Identity Enterprise door access policies.
  • After the effective date of an OfficeRnD reservation ends, Identity Enterprise automatically deletes the access policy and schedule.

Known Issues

When Making a Reservation at Least 7 Days in Advance

When making a reservation at least one week away on OfficeRnD, Identity Enterprise automatically reserves the same day of the week until the effective date of the reservation. For example, when a reservation request for an office room for December 5 (Monday) is submitted on November 9, the system will book the room for every Monday until December 5.

When Creating a Recurring Schedule

Repeat Every 2 or More Days

When a reservation is set to repeat every 2 or more days on OfficeRnD, Identity Enterprise automatically reserves every day of the week until the end date of the recurrence. This means that users have permission to access rooms/doors every day until the end date of the recurrence. This is because Identity Enterprise only allows a schedule to recur every week.

Repeat Every 2 or More Weeks

When a reservation is set to repeat every 2 or more weeks on OfficeRnD, Identity Enterprise automatically reserves the same day of every week until the end date of the recurrence. This means that users have permission to access rooms/doors on the same day of every week until the end date of the recurrence. This is because Identity Enterprise only allows a schedule to recur every week.

Repeat Monthly

When a reservation is set to repeat monthly on OfficeRnD, Identity Enterprise will not create a corresponding access policy schedule. This is because Identity Enterprise does not allow a schedule to recur monthly.

When a Single Event in a Recurring Schedule Is Changed

When a single event in a recurring schedule is changed on OfficeRnD, the changes will not be synced to Identity Enterprise. This is because Identity Enterprise does not support editing a single event in a recurring schedule.

Limitations

Identity Enterprise currently does not support OfficeRnD’s Preparation Time feature.
