Hitachi ID Identity Manager can be integrated with existing systems and applications using a rich set of over 120 included connectors. This allows it to automatically provision, update and deprovision access across commonly available systems and applications.
Organizations may opt to integrate custom and vertical-market applications with Identity Manager by using the included flexible connectors. Alternately, the built-in ''implementers'' workflow can be used to invite human administrators to make approved changes to users and entitlements on those systems.
There are over 120 connectors included with Hitachi ID Systems, out of the box and at no extra charge. This includes:
Some of these connectors support multiple versions and types of systems. For example, the LDAP connector can manage users, passwords and entitlements on any standards-compliant LDAP directory.
Some of these connectors are scriptable and are expressly designed to integrate with new systems. For example, there is a SOAP agent and an SSH agent, both designed for rapid integration with new applications during deployment.
Identity Manager supports the notion of an "implementer-style" target system, where a human system administrator is asked to create, modify or delete a user object on the target system, in place of an automated Identity Manager connector.
Implementer-style target systems are useful in two main circumstances:
Individual target systems or applications may also be configured in a hybrid mode. For example, a CSV file might be used to enumerate users, groups and/or group memberships but a human implementer may be invited to make updates manually.
