What is Role Lifecycle Management?

In role lifecycle management, user roles used for role-based access control (RBAC) are defined based on information about users (department, job function, location, etc.) to automate access and validate the appropriateness of entitlements that are granted. These roles are used to govern application access requests, including additions, modifications, and deactivations. To manage the lifecycle of these roles, you must have a process to validate user roles on a periodic basis, and to capture critical changes to roles or accesses between those periodic reviews.

Why Is Role Lifecycle Management Important?

Without a lifecycle management process for user access roles, organizational changes and IT changes will render some roles stale over time. Lifecycle management keeps roles current and reflective of your organization’s needs. A Role Lifecycle Management process helps you meet your audit and compliance requirements that your RBAC program remain well-founded and true to your organization’s needs.
