When working with assets, users, or privileged accounts in your hybrid environment, you may want to identify or group entities according to how they operate in your business environment.

For example, you have an SAP HANA environment hosted on multiple servers. You recently added more components to your SAP HANA environment increasing the application servers and data layers. You want to assign the access of these servers to the staff managing these assets. You want to also ensure that the team can access these servers and any new team added on can get access without complicated processes. Creating groups based only on naming conventions still requires the PAM administrator to assign access to multiple servers manually. Assets are identified by IP Address/Hostname, Users by username, and Accounts by unique names. Tags help in defining business relevance to grant access to users and group assignments.

With tags, you can assign attributes to assets, users, and accounts to allow attribute-based linking. You can tag users with SAP Administrators and assets with SAP tags to create dynamic account groups or user groups that will ensure dynamic attribute-based grouping of these entities as soon as you add them.
