After some testing our beta version is mature enough to be widely used. We have been working very hard the last few months to have available a number of significant improvements for the efficiency of our tool. Surely you notice the difference.
What’s new on this release:
1.- User attributes screen has been largely improved, allowing the administrators to easyly define custom attributes. This version supports text, numeric, date, email or user attributes as well as predefined list of values for each one.
2.- Synchronization connectors no longer need to be coded in Java. Customizable agents allow the administrator to easyly define how each attribute on the target system will be populated, and how a Soffid attribute will be populated based on a managed system one when needed.
3.- Administrator can create translation tables in order to translate external codes no internal ones, easeing data synchronization.
4.- Recover password addon is now integrated with ESSO and WSSO engines.
5.- A brand new report engine allows users and administators to create custom reports using iReport tool.
6.- Now, Soffid console is able to use external password systems, improving transition phase.
7.- Recover password module let administrator decide which recover methods to use: personal questions or email message. Now it can be used seamlessly from Soffid SelfService portal, our SAML identity provider, or our Windows Credential Provider.
8.- A new agent has been created to connect with any identity source based on SQL tables on Maria DB, My SQL, Postgresql, Oracle, SQL Server or Informix. An SCIM configurable agent has also been released.
9.- Authoritative data import is now incremental on systems supporting it.
