Connector with Apple OS X

IAM Simplifies User Management Through the OS

Connection to Apple OS X

Identity and Access Management (IAM) offers complete user account management within Apple OS. IAM makes it possible to create user accounts in compliance with the rules of Apple OS. User Account names are thus unique and meet the user name policies (length, etc.) of Apple OS. The same applies to passwords. The generated password meets the set password complexity rules of Apple OS. If required, also the rights group memberships and/or authorizations can be assigned and managed.

The changes are made via native interface calls to Apple OS or through open standards like LDAP, SSH, REXEC, SH, SOAP, etc. Tools4ever has completed different interface types for Apple OS which are readily available.

In addition to 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 Apple OS.

Connection to HR system

Managing user accounts within Apple OS 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 HR system (AFAS Profit, PeopleSoft, SAP HCM, PMS, Oracle HR, etc.). Changes in the HR system are automatically detected by IAM and translated into user account changes in Apple OS.
