Features

Features

New features in One Identity Manager 8.0.2:

Basic functionality
  • Supports Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2.

Target system connection
  • Support is provided for SQL Server databases to configure synchronization between two One Identity Manager databases with different versions. To configure synchronization, use the native database connector for SQL Server databases.

IT Service Management
  • ServiceNow integration with One Identity Manager. A new module has been introduced for the integration of ServiceNow, the ServiceNow module.

    • During an approval workflow sequence in One Identity Manager, the workflow can be passed to ServiceNow. One Identity Manager checks the ticket's status in ServiceNow until it closes. Then the approval workflow is continued by One Identity Manager.
    • Each time a request is added or changed in One Identity Manager. it causes a ticket to be added or changed in ServiceNow. This means that ServiceNow is the central hub for information about all requests.
    • Integration of the Web Portal request system in the ServiceNow portal.

    For integration to successfully authenticate a user, ServiceNow accounts (users) must have corresponding identities in One Identity Manager.
