Onboarding, Provisioning, & Ongoing Management
HelloID detects changes in the connected HR system. Detected changes trigger processes that update users and their access to connected IT resources according to your configurations. Processes are automatic, consistent, and logged—reclaiming significant IT staff bandwidth.
HelloID automatically carries out provisioning processes when a new user is detected, such as creating accounts and person cards within TOPdesk. In addition, HelloID processes changes to existing users in the HR system to ensure everything remains up-to-date. When an employee departs, HR changes their status, and HelloID swiftly deactivates accounts and revokes access.
Automatic Updates & Ticketing
HelloID directly integrates with TOPdesk’s ticketing system, automating and tracking many identity management processes. By processing every change in the connected HR system, HelloID ensures that users’ identity information, resources, and access remain up-to-date. Throughout promotions, role changes, and any other events that occur during the user account lifecycle, HelloID updates accordingly.
When HelloID detects changes made within the HR system, it can automatically create tickets within TOPdesk. Providing TOPdesk with automated ticketing processes accelerates your improved ITSM even further. Examples of automatic ticketing include:
- Registration and tracking purposes, immediately opening and closing tickets.
- Change requests, creating tickets when HelloID detects new users or updates their role.
- Create incidents when a user submits a call from TOPdesk’s self-service portal.
HelloID’s connector helps automate the identity management log created by TOPdesk’s ticketing records. These records always provide an up-to-date log and audit trail of changes concerning employees and incidents. Examples include:
- When did a user receive their accounts?
- Which systems did they receive accounts for?
- Who approved permission changes?
- Did a user receive a new device correlating to a role change?
- Did a user reset their password resets?
If role-based provisioning or downstream user updates must be executed without a change in the HR system, HelloID provides delegated forms. With configurable fields for these forms, HR staff, IT, or managers may enter the necessary information to initiate the change. Once the delegated form is submitted, HelloID automatically executes all the associated processes immediately.
User Self-Service & Single Sign-On (SSO)
Enabled by the connector, HelloID and TOPdesk’s self-service functionalities work together to create an elevated solution.
Access Management & Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
When users log into TOPdesk and navigate their self-service portal, they may immediately access their HelloID dashboard containing all their cloud applications and resources. HelloID ensures access to TOPdesk, enforces multifactor authentication (MFA) where configured, and allows access to all cloud applications regardless of their individual SSO protocols.
HelloID may be configured to enforce MFA at both portal and individual application levels to enhance security without sacrificing access efficiency.

Simplified Management & Security, Reclaimed IT Bandwidth
Identity Management requires dedicated knowledge, elevated permissions, and significant time and effort. Even after implementing TOPdesk, some organizations rely on manual efforts to address tickets. By connecting TOPdesk to HelloID, these tasks become automated processes with enhanced ticketing and tracking.
While TOPdesk’s ticketing greatly enhances ITSM, HelloID’s automations eliminate the need for IT to manually address, execute, and close every ticket or incident. Instead, HelloID automatically executes the configured process for many provisioning and self-service processes, creating and closing tickets as needed.
