Import from application
Importing user and entitlements from your applications
In an IAM project, a common task is to import entitlements and users from your applications to:
- Create a user profile which shows the access that user has across all application.
- Develop the service catalog
Section details of how you can develop your scripts to import user and entitlement information.
Example Scripts to import your entitlements
The references below provide examples which can be used with applications which are frequently used by customers. These scripts should be viewed as a starting point to create custom solutions needed to support your business. In some cases, the starter scripts are also part of the product distribution.
|CSV File||Often there are applications which either cannot be integrated via the connectors. In these cases, its possible to import the data using a CSV file|
|Active Directory||Import Groups and Users from Active Directory|
|Azure AD||Import groups and Users from Azure AD|
Developing your own import scripts
OpenIAM does not allow you, by default, to import both users and the list entitlements in one process. You must first:
- Import your entitlements
- Import users + their entitlements
The sections below describe how you can achieve the first step: "Import your entitlements". Since OpenIAM allows you to import a variety of entitlement types, the list below is organized by the object type.
