Add SFTP functionality to the CSV connector and/or agent

Aneesh Varghese 7 years ago in CSV connector updated by Matthew Davis (Technical Product Manager) 12 months ago 2

Add the ability for the FTP agent to connect to SFTP servers. Also update the CSV connector if required to be able to use the updates to the connector.


Available in latest 5.3 release, and will be available in 6.0 as well.

Please support write/export operation for CSV Connector using FTP agent.

Aneesh Varghese 8 years ago in CSV connector updated by anonymous 6 years ago 6

CSV Connector using FTP agent currently doesn't support write/export operation but only import. Understood, it is a bit more complicated than updating a local file but can we look to see what we can do or suggest a workaround to cater write operation.

Some HR Systems like "PayGlobal" currently doesn't have a Web Service interface and the only option for integration is CSV/file extracts. Systems like PayGlobal is also remotely hosted on the Vendors Cloud environment and does require remote file transfer.




"Generate Changes" button for an individual object

Adrian Corston 4 years ago updated by Matthew Davis (Technical Product Manager) 12 months ago 6

During development it would be very helpful to have a "Generate Changes" button on the SearchEntities page which executed a forced Generate Changes operation on just one object at a time.

Create a built-in log writer for Azure Log Analytics

Adam van Vliet 7 years ago updated by anonymous 7 years ago 3

Whilst Azure Log Analytics can be logged to using PowerShell (see here for details), I'm adding this issue to get feedback on whether the community would be interested in a built-in Identity Broker log writer to log to Azure Log Analytics (for example using this).

To be included in the upcoming Identity Broker v5.2 release.


Adapter auto start

Matthew Davis (Technical Product Manager) 8 years ago updated by anonymous 6 years ago 2

When a connector is stopped, adapters attached to it are also stopped (logically). But when you restart the connector again the adapter isn’t automatically restarted.

Would it be possible to implement a check that when an adapter is queried by FIM, if the adapter was turned off automatically it checks whether its dependencies are back on again and automatically turns back on? But if it was turned back on manually then it stays off and throws an error?

Identity Broker for Google Apps v5

Boyd Bostock 8 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Google Apps updated by anonymous 7 years ago 2

Can Identity Broker for Google Apps be made available for Identity Broker v5?

This Broker can manage more attributes than the Google Apps Directory Synchronization and can make use of existing PCNS deployments rather than require Google Apps Password Sync GAPS which needs to be installed on all DCs and is limited to one Google Apps domain.

Cairns Catholic Education will use it and Brisbane Catholic Education would be likely to use it to replace GAPS and GADS with FIM/MIM and IdB.

Option to send entity attribute level differences to PowerShell

Shane Day (Chief Technology Officer) 8 years ago updated by anonymous 6 years ago 1
When using the PowerShell connector, it is sometimes required to calculate what differences there are to an entity at an attribute level.

As Identity Broker already has the ability to produce this, it would be good to have an option to have this pre-calculated for consumption in the PowerShell script.

Added to backlog. It's pretty trivial, so should get done quickly.


WCAG 2.0 compliance

Shane Day (Chief Technology Officer) 8 years ago updated by anonymous 6 years ago 2
In order to meet a number of organisations for accessibility standards, particularly for larger value supply contracts, having WCAG 2.0 compliance of Identity Broker would ensure all administration users can use Identity Broker.

Will be addressed by new UI.
