Provisioning involves the process of preparing and equipping an application to allow it to provide access to its users.
The concept of user provisioning or access grant, mostly used in the IT infrastructure management, refers to the provisioning of the user’s account to the network elements and applications connected in an organization. Generally in account provisioning this is accomplished with directory entries. Provisioning to applications that need richer access controls are often done directly through APIs or database entries
IDHub connector connectors are standalone platform agnostic applications that encapsulate all interactions with a target system. IDHub core connects to target system via connectors to provision accounts, entitlements and other resources.
IDHub connector consists of SCIM and other REST endpoints to perform operations on a target system. The connectors are developed and maintained independent of mainline IDHub. They are self contained processes running on a server/platform that has direct connection to target systems. Connectors can be run on the Target System Servers.
Built to Scale
IDHub Provisioning engine integrates with connectors using standards based protocol and offloads the heavy lifting of work outside the core stack. This insulates the core stack from an outage or problems occurring on isolated systems increasing the stability of the system.
