Identity management systems require consolidating the diversity of many user repositories, the creation of roles and their assignment to the identity management software. To decrease administration costs we propose linking the identity management system to business process models which contain the organizational responsibilities. Therefore, we introduce a modeling grammar to model web-services that access existing enterprise models. We illustrate the usefulness of our approach with a pilot study conducted at the University of Muenster (Germany).
