Application integration

One Identity provides many applications with the same level of Active Directory integration that it provides for Unix-based operating systems. Specifically, One Identity One Identity Solution provides Active Directory-based single sign-on (and the closely associated reduced sign-on) for the following applications:

Oracle databases Integration to enable single sign-on to Oracle databases running on Unix or Linux.
Kerberos-enabled applications You can bring any non-Windows application that is Kerberos-aware into the Active Directory "trusted realm."
LDAP-aware applications You can bring any non-Windows application that is LDAP-aware into the Active Directory "trusted realm" through a powerful LDAP proxy
Applications with an API You can integrate any application with an authentication API (such as GSSAPI) with Active Directory for single sign-on

Managing Unix hosts with Group Policy

Authentication Services extends Group Policy to Unix, Linux and Mac OS X. Authentication Services Group Policy provides policies to manage a wide array of configuration settings, files, scripts and applications.

Note: For more information about managing your Mac OS X clients with Group Policy, see the Authentication Services Mac OS X/macOS Administration Guide.

Authentication Services Group Policy

The Microsoft Group Policy management solution is included as an integral part of the Microsoft Windows Server and allows administrators to define configurations for both Windows servers and desktops. Windows Administrators can use Group Policy to set policies that apply across a given site, domain, or range of organizational units (OUs) in Active Directory.

Group Policy allows administrators to use Microsoft Group Policy to manage configuration settings for non-Windows operating systems and applications. Authentication Services allows Group Policy to become a single integrated tool for managing resource configuration in your enterprise, Windows and non-Windows alike.
