Ok I may be missing the point but here is my situation;

My organization does not have an HR system connected to the IDVault
I do have people listed as managers under the Managers attribute and
managers have people listed under the direct reports. But the isManager
attribute is not used

I have been asked to create 4 workflows to request access to 4 seperate
applications/services (these are not conencted to the IVault via any
dirvers)

One of those request workflows is a request for a cell phone.

I am suppose to be able to request a cell phone. So self service is not
an issue

But if I am suppose to be able to request a cell phone on another user's
behalf I am not sure how it's done

Do I have to give the peron who would be requesting on behalf of others
any special edirectory rights to the ACTIVE user OU?

They are talking about a small group of people doing the requests on
behalf (such as admin assistance in each department) would request on
behaf of the employees in that department

Any suggestions samples, ideas?

Thanks
