Quick Connect for Base Systems

Perform easy and seamless identity and access synchronization

Connect to a wide range of common systems such as HR, ERP, corporate directories, databases and various applications.

If you’re looking for a solution that connects to a wide range of common systems, such as HR, ERP, corporate directories, databases and various applications, choose Quick Connect for Base Systems. Provision and match existing users and groups, synchronize group memberships and properties and de-provision users and groups as user identity requirements change.

It helps you accomplish this by integrating identities with Dell One products, such as ActiveRoles Server, Identity Manager and Password Manager. It also does the same for Active Directory-based and enterprise solutions.

Features

  • IdentitySync - You can use Quick Connect wizards to configure synchronization profiles. Enable an Active Directory user to log on to non-Active Directory applications or data sources with synchronized identities, such as user accounts, to other systems. Quick Connect requires no programming, unlike other synchronization solutions.
  • PasswordSync – This function allows you to set initial passwords during provisioning. Synchronize your password changes in Active Directory with connected systems, enabling your universal password resets through integration with Quest Password Manager.
  • AutoMapping - Reconcile associated objects, such as users and groups, automatically between source and target systems. This includes auto-creation with no existing objects, rule correlation and manual mapping for exceptions.
  • ErrorControl - Provide thresholds and stop conditions that determine if and when synchronization should halt due to errors, which reduces the impact of errors.
  • Codeless transformation - Make the source and target objects different types when you convert during synchronization.
  • GroupSync - Extend your enterprise-wide investment in centralized group management when you synchronize authorization objects (typically groups) between directories in AD, integrated applications or data sources.

Quick Connect

Quick Connect

Quick Connect supports many different types of data synchronization workflows to and from different platforms and based on different conditions (data types, time of day, etc.). In this example, a CSV file to ActiveRoles Server provisioning workflow (typical of a HR Sync to ARS) is created.

Quick Connect

Quick Connect

Quick Connect now supports a full data sync, or a delta data sync, for either the source or the destination target. Important for distributed data set integration, the platform conforms to your requirements – even supporting the ability to run scripts before and/or after the sync job is complete (to send an email, move a file, do a trigger or support whatever your requirements are).

This screen provides a summary of a total workflow scenario, providing a full view of all actions you are taking on the data and the impacts of those actions. Advanced functions, such as user password settings, generation and default user account information, are taken into account here as well. Other target destinations provide other options, too.

Out of the box, Quick Connect provides full password synchronization technology for most platforms (uni- and bi-directional dependent upon target endpoint). When you are interfacing to a supported platform, you will see that you have flexibility as to how to synchronize the passwords, where to send them and how to manage/manipulate them to fit other platforms' password strength requirements.
