Certification in ForgeRock OpenIDM Episode I: Initial Reconciliation

If this was a book, what we have here is a prologue. Just as you don’t expect the prologue to throw a full story at you, so does this web log unveil absolutely no details around Certification in ForgeRock OpenIDM. What it does though is to setup a ‘plot’ for a possible video demonstration on Certification facility in ForgeRock’s Identity Management Solution. And that’s coming soon…

So in the video log, that’s actually a visual representation of the brilliant ForgeRock Documentation on OpenIDM, you’ll see:
– Installation of ForgeRock OpenDJ
– Configuration of OpenDJ as an external resource managed by OpenIDM (using sample files)
– Performing the initial reconciliation using REST to load users from OpenDJ to OpenIDM

Soon we’ll put all those users in action for Certification in OpenIDM. For now, just as you’d skim through the prologue of a book, take a quick look at the ~5 minute video

ForgeRock OpenIDM User Provisioning Workflow

ForgeRock OpenIDM, very simply put, manages the identity, not necessarily of users all the time. In a short video demonstration that follows, I’ve taken efforts to show you a very simple user provisioning workflow in OpenIDM. When an employee in an organization initiates an onboard contract, the workflow is launched and the request reaches a manager, who then pickups the request and approves (or reject) it. Consequently, the new user’s identity is provisioned on a resource.

This video demonstration owes heavily to this section of ForgeRock documentation.

What’s in the video is a simple exercise and I strongly encourage anyone interested in ForgeRock’s Identity Management solution to try it and see. Well, if you say you aren’t familiar with the OpenIDM installation, that isn’t difficult either, you can watch it here.

Enjoy!
