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’.
Virtual systems are supported
A virtual system is a system, that can not be directly connected for online management. The reason may be for example the absence of a suitable system connector. The virtual system is basically only a registration mode, where for each system change is generated the implementation request (notification) that is assigned to the particular implementer. This implementer must ensure that the change is made to the target system.
Imagine a situation when you need to manage accounts in systems, but it does not make sense to connect these systems to IdM for direct management. Then you have the function of “Virtual Systems”. How does it work?
To create, change (e.g. assign rights), or delete accounts on a virtually connected system CzechIdM will instruct the administrator via email to do that . The administrator of the virtual system will make the changes and then confirm it in the CzechIdM.
