Connector with Linux
Connection to Linux to simplify User Account Management
Identity and Access Management (IAM) offers complete user account management within Linux. IAM makes it possible to create user accounts in compliance with the rules of Linux. User Account names are thus unique and meet the user name policies (length, etc.) of Linux. The same applies to passwords. The (generated) password meets the set password complexity rules of Linux. If required, alo the rights group memberships and / or authorizations- can be assigned and managed.
The changes are made via native interface calls to Linux or through open standards like LDAP, SSH, REXEC, SH, SOAP, etc. Tools4ever has completed different interface types for Linux which are readily available.
Apart from managing user accounts (create, modify and delete) and rights IAM offers numerous reporting functions. The connection includes comprehensive reporting of available user accounts and associated settings of rights within Linux.
Connection to HRM system
Managing user accounts within Linux is greatly simplified by this connection from IAM. IAM provides an interface to delegate to the service and/or helpdesk so that non-skilled IT employees can take over the user account management from expensive and busy system administrators. It is even possible to largely automate user management by connecting to an HRM system (AFAS Profit, PeopleSoft, SAP HCM, PMS, Oracle HR, etc.). Changes in the HRM system are automatically detected by IAM and translated into user account changes in Linux.
