> --------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SYNCOPE-1067
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SYNCOPE-1067
>             Project: Syncope
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: console, core
>            Reporter: Francesco Chicchiriccò

> The current implementation of [delegated administration|https://syncope.apache.org/docs/reference-guide.html#delegated-administration] relies on Roles, where each Role associates a set of Entitlements (e.g. administrative actions) to a set of Realms (e.g. containers for Users / Groups / Any Objects).
> This requires, however, that the set of Users / Groups / Any Objects to administer is somehow statically defined by containment: "administrators with role R can manage users under realms /a and /b" works as long as users to administer are fully contained by the Realms /a and /b; but what if the set of Users that R can administer needs to be dynamically defined, say by the value of a 'department' attribute?
> Two approaches can be taken here:
> # extend the Role concept to map Entitlements to Realms and / or Groups
> # introduce the new concept of Virtual Realm, e.g. containers that are defined by a dynamic conditions (as currently happening for Groups and Roles), and make Roles to map Entitlements to Realms / Virtual Realms
