How to connect Microsoft Active Directory into CzechIdM

Since MS AD is the major directory service spread across the enterprise environment, connecting it to our identity manager CzechIdM is one of the most frequent task we come across. This text is a short tutorial of how to manage accounts of users in AD via an identity manager CzechIdM. It will guide you through all the steps from the connector setup to the system provisioning configuration.

Introduction

This tutorial will show you how to connect AD as target system for users (their accounts) from CzechIdM. We will use AD bundle connector from connId framework.

Before you start

First of all, you need to download the connector from Connid (e.g. Connid AD bundle 1.3.4 jar file). Then import the jar file into your application server library classpath.

Virtual systems in CzechIdM 7

Virtual systems is one of main section in CzechIdM. In CzechIdM you can have many connected systems. But not for all systems is necessary to be connected directly. For example system with a few users can be connected as virtual system, because connection to system like that will not be used that many times like on other systems, so you can save time and connect these systems like virtual systems.

Virtual system is not directly connected to CzechIdM and all changes have to be made manually  by administrator. CzechIdM sends to administrator notification with precise information about create, update or delete account on virtually connected system. Administrator can see which lines has been changed and what was there  before change and what will be there after change. And all these tasks are stored in ‘Archive’.

Certificate authority module in CzechIdM, part1 – the overview

Many companies use an on-premise certificate authority (CA) for their internal purposes. Without a doubt, one specific function of the certificate authority in a company is handling users’ certificates. Those certificates are bound to physical persons and as such, they fit neatly into the identity management problematics.

For this reason, CzechIdM implements the CA functionality in the form of a module. In this short series of posts, we will describe basic workings of our CA implementation and how it can be fit into the company’s infrastructure.
