Starling Connect for Active Roles Overview
Today, more than ever, organizations must address the proliferation of cloud-based applications. While these applications often provide convenient and flexible access for employees and customers, they also present a new set of management and security challenges for IT and line-of-business managers.
One Identity Active Roles is an administrative and security tool for Microsoft Active Directory (AD), Azure AD (AAD), and related systems, such as Exchange and Office 365. It enables organizations to create flexible administration workflows, including automation of user and group provisioning and DE provisioning. These workflows can be easily customized for your needs while ensuring secure delegation of tasks, reduced workloads, increased accuracy and lower costs. It also enables the integration of diverse corporate data sources and provisioning processes, which can expedite workflows and eliminate data inconsistencies across platforms and environments.
One Identity Starling Connect – a cloud-based service – extends the provisioning capabilities of Active Roles (version 7.4.0 or later) to a growing collection of SaaS applications, which enables organizations to streamline processes and secure hybrid environments. This means you can extend your Active Roles on-premise deployment to provision many more applications, regardless of where they are located (on-premise or cloud-based).
Starling Connect SCIM Endpoints
Starling Connect SCIM endpoints are SCIM version 2.0 endpoints, that simplifies user management in the target cloud application. The SCIM endpoints define a schema for representing users, groups and a REST API for the necessary CRUD operations. For more information on the attribute mapping table, see SCIM attribute mapping with Active Directory for users and groups.
One Identity Starling for Active Roles
Starling helps in creating a secure and customizable cloud service. Administrators use the Starling site to create a new organization, register new accounts, add services to their organization, and gain secure access to those services. Although the main Starling portal can be used to create a free Starling account and provides access to the services currently available for subscriptions, some of the services must be purchased in order for them to be available for full-time use. For more information on adding a service, use the information associated with each service.
There is a service information site (http://status.cloud.oneidentity.com/) for viewing the current operational status of each service. This site is useful if you are having difficulties connecting to a service and want to check if there are any reported issues prior to contacting Support for additional assistance.
The following table lists the connectors and their status with respect to validation in the current release. Connectors with the status Validated, implies that the connector has been tested. Connectors with the status Not Compatible implies that the connector is not compatible with ARS.
