What is Birthright and Just in Time Access?

What is Just in Time Access?

Birthright Access automatically assigns access rights in line with a user's organizational role, usually pre-set according to their job function, but this can result in excessive privileges without regular audits. Conversely, Just-In-Time (JIT) Access grants necessary rights only when required, for a specific task and a limited time, thereby bolstering security by minimizing the chance of unauthorized access, making it suitable for sensitive or high-importance systems.

Benefits of Birthright and JIT Access Through Workday

Benefits of Just in Time Access to


  1. Efficient Least Privilege Access: Incorporating Workday's detailed employee data into a JIT access management system allows for an effective least privilege approach. Workday’s rich insights into user roles and activities enable dynamic adjustment of access privileges, ensuring that employees have only essential access, thereby improving security and mitigating the risk of over-privileged accounts.
  2. Boosted Compliance and Operational Productivity: Utilizing Workday’s detailed employee activity and attributes in a JIT access framework enhances both compliance auditing and operational efficiency. This integration supports fast, informed decisions regarding access rights, reducing errors in access management and promoting a more efficient, compliant workflow.
  3. Minimized Insider Threats: The use of temporary access controls, informed by Workday’s comprehensive employee data, effectively reduces insider threat risks. Limiting permanent administrative privileges, as informed by Workday's data, lowers the potential for unauthorized access to critical company resources.
  4. Streamlining Employee Lifecycle Changes: Applying Workday’s HR data to manage changes in employee status (joiners, movers, leavers) automates the access control process. This ensures appropriate and timely modifications in access rights, thereby improving security and operational efficiency across the employee lifecycle and reducing the workload for HR and IT teams.

Use Cases for Birthright and JIT Access Through Workday

Use Cases for Just in Time Access to


  1. Automated Cloud Access for Project-Based Teams: Integrating Workday's information on employee project roles and assignments can enable automated JIT access to cloud resources such as AWS S3 buckets or Azure VMs. This approach is ideal for dynamic project teams, ensuring they have timely and relevant access to cloud services.
  2. Protecting Cloud Data with Workday's Employee Insights: Using Workday’s data regarding employee clearance levels and job functions can refine the management of JIT access to critical cloud applications and databases. This strategy ensures that only employees with the appropriate clearance can access sensitive data, enhancing data security in CRM systems or cloud-based ERP platforms.
  3. Streamlined Onboarding in the Cloud: Workday can be utilized to automate the allocation of cloud resource access for new employees, based on their designated roles. This leads to a more efficient onboarding process, giving new hires immediate access to necessary tools such as Google Workspace or project management software.
  4. Dynamic Admin Privileges in Workday: By integrating JIT access with Workday, organizations can grant temporary admin privileges for specific operational tasks. This approach ensures that admin rights are assigned only when truly needed, thereby reinforcing security in various operational contexts.

Workday's comprehensive HR tools can also be utilized for HR-based birthright and JIT access control. Here's how you can adapt this setup:

1. Integrate Workday with Centralized Permission Management Platforms and IT Systems:

  • Connect Workday with your organization’s centralized permission management platform. This facilitates easier management of access rights across IT systems.
  • Without a centralized platform, integrate Workday directly with individual IT systems, utilizing Workday’s API or its range of integrations for effective data synchronization.

2. Set Up Birthright Access Controls:

  • Define roles and job functions within Workday to establish your birthright access framework.
  • Automate permission assignments using data from Workday, like granting new finance hires automatic access to specific resources.

3. Implement JIT Access Requests:

  • Develop a process for employees to request temporary access to resources or systems, especially for project-based or short-term needs.
  • Use Workday’s HR attributes for self-service access requests, integrating with chatbots and platforms like Slack or Microsoft Teams for streamlined management.

4. Regular Monitoring and Auditing:

  • Regularly monitor and audit assigned access rights using reporting tools to ensure ongoing compliance and security.

5. Educate Your Employees:

  • Provide thorough training on accessing resources through Slack, Teams, or Jira, ensuring employees understand the procedures and comply with company policies.

6. Evaluate and Refine the Process:

  • Initially implement the birthright and JIT access system with a small group of users, refining the process based on feedback before full organizational deployment.

By following these steps, BambooHR and Workday can be effectively leveraged to manage HR-based birthright and JIT access in your organization, ensuring a seamless integration of HR data with access control mechanisms and clearly defined access protocols and roles.
