RapidIdentity Product Guides - 2019 Rolling Release

RapidIdentity Connect Administrator's Guide Organization

Unlike RapidIdentity Portal, RapidIdentity Connect does not contain separate User's and Administrator's Guides since the RapidIdentity Connect end user is most often a system administrator or otherwise equivalent-level technology professional.

Consequently, given how RapidIdentity Connect functions and what it can do, this guide also assumes the reader has basic to intermediate level programming/scripting, network, and database functionality knowledge.

The RapidIdentity Connect Administrator's Guide is divided into these content areas:

  1. RapidIdentity Connect Overview

  2. Accessing RapidIdentity Connect

  3. Connecting Schema Diagrams and Action Sets

  4. RapidIdentity Connect System Integration

  5. Introduction to Actions

  6. RapidIdentity Connect Supplemental References

  7. Core Actions

  8. Adapter Actions

  9. RapidIdentity Connect Adapter SDK

  10. RapidIdentity Connect Standards

  11. Connect Module Configuration

The Overview provides a high-level description of the RapidIdentity Connect application and representative RapidIdentity Connect solution examples while Using the RapidIdentity Connect UI describes the basic user interface.

Connecting Schema Diagrams and Action Sets takes an example process diagram and illustrates how each process step corresponds to RapidIdentity Connect logic in an Action Set. The process diagram is representative of process diagrams found within the deployment Design Document. RapidIdentity Connect System Integration explains how various RapidIdentity Connect adapters can connect RapidIdentity to a desired source or target.

Actions and Action Sets are the cores of RapidIdentity Connect, and Introduction to Actions provides a high-level overview of the two principal Actions groupings.

Moreover, the Connecting Schema Diagrams and Action Sets within the Actions Module illustrates how organizational infrastructure (i.e. Active Directory, Human Resources Management Systems, or Student Information Systems) and RapidIdentity Applications can integrate with Action Sets to automate identity management.

Each RapidIdentity Connect module contains functional information and also more detailed user interface explanations since the RapidIdentity Connect UI is module-specific.
