GroupID from Imanami is the cornerstone in Identity and Access Management. Easy to install and maintain, GroupID empowers your organization with the tools needed to keep the right information to the right people…and the right time.
Set an expiration policy on any and all groups. Group owner’s are notified before a group expires and is given the ability to renew them. Make sure a group is still useful for the business before allowing it to clutter up your GAL with an old unwanted group. Group lifecycle works on both AD security groups and Exchange distribution lists.
Manage your own groups
Group owners can manage the membership, lifecycle, and delivery restrictions on their groups. Add workflow to join groups, create restrictions on who can send to the group, and add/delete members.
Join & Leave groups
Users can opt in or opt out of groups depending on their security levels.
Any amount of groups or users can manage a group. All owners receive the same rights. All owners receive workflow notifications. Have an assistant manage your group or delegate it to your favorite employee!
Workflow on group creation
Allow users to create groups but give IT or their manager a chance to approve what they’re doing. Enforce naming conventions or security levels.
Enforcable naming conventions
Force a prefix (or even create a drop down list) onto all group names to standardize your GAL or distinguish groups in different departments.
Group security settings
Private: nobody can join
Semi-private: the owner has to approve the new member
Semi-public: the owner is notified that there is a new member
Public: anybody can join
GroupID Self-Service allows you to set any fields to view, edit, or hide depending on a highly customizable set of roles. Allow only the users you want to manage attributes to manage them.
Notification & workflow
Create workflow on any attribute changes with approvals going to managers, HR, help desk or admins. Very customizable and powerful workflow gives IT confidence in delegating.
Bad Word Filter
Apply a customizable list of bad words onto any attribute on any object to keep users from polluting the GAL with objectionable wording.
Allow end users to reset their own password.
In GroupID Synchronize, scripting capabilities have been expanded to provide more scriptable events. This means you can write script that executes only when an object is updated, or deleted, or even just before it is created. You can use these events to write script that perform other functions, like sending an email notification to a manager when a new user is created, or enabling an Active Directory User account for use with Live Communications Server. Combine this ability with the new PowerTools feature in GroupID Synchronize and the possibilities are endless!
The Preview function runs the job but without modifying the destination. It then displays a summary of how many records would be updated, unchanged, created, deleted, or error out. You can even drill down to find out the before and after values of the modified objects.
Once you are satisfied with the results, click Run to commit your changes to the destination.
Multiple Data Source Support
Support for several data sources including:
- Microsoft Access – New Source & Destination!
- Sun ONE Directory Server / iPlanet (LDAP) – New Destination!
- Oracle – New Destination!
- Microsoft Active Directory with Exchange 2003/2000
- Microsoft Exchange 5.5
- Microsoft Excel
- Text Files including CSV
- Adacel View500 (LDAP)
- Lotus Notes (LDAP)
- Novell Directory Services (LDAP)
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Any LDAP Version 3.0 compliant data source
- Any ODBC compliant data source
See what would happen before it happens. GroupID Synchronize’s Preview Feature lets you see what would change when the job is run without making any changes in the target system. You can see what records would be updated, created, or deleted. You can even review the before and after values of the attributes.
Once you are satisfied with the results, click Run to commit the changes to the target system.
Use script to create your own field transforms using Visual Basic .Net and GroupID Synchronize’s integrated Script Editor. In a similar manner, you can also write scripts to dynamically determine where to create new objects within Active Directory or Exchange.
Not a scripter? No problem, GroupID Synchronize provides simple transforms for the most common tasks including:
Resolve – Used to set the manager or managedby attribute in Active Directory
Join – Concatenate multiple attributes into one, useful for creating a full name (First Last) or display name (Last, First)
Static – Used to specify a constant value, supports environmental variables too
Of course, you can use a scripted transform to perform virtually any calculation on a field if the built-in transforms do not meet your business needs.
The GroupID Synchronize Console gives you a bird’s eye view of all your GroupID Synchronize jobs including information on when they will run, when they last run, how many objects were updated, created, deleted or unchanged.
Through the console you can manage your existing jobs, create new jobs, delete jobs, even preview changes a job would make to the target directory.
Support for multiple data sources
GroupID Synchronize synchronizes virtually any data source with Exchange and Active Directory. With GroupID Synchronize, you can import users from other databases, LDAP sources or other email systems like Notes, into Exchange or Active Directory. Use GroupID Synchronize in migration or update projects to synchronize two Exchange organizations or separate forests.
Use GroupID Synchronize to provision your Active Directory users. When GroupID Synchronize detects a new person in HR that is not in Active Directory, it can create the user. It can even mail-enable the user (Exchange) or create a contact instead, useful when connecting a CRM solution to Active Directory.
Synchronize multi-valued attributes
GroupID Synchronize allows you to synchronize or create multi valued attributes. Define a delimiter in either the source or destination and keep those pesky multi valued attributes accurate at all times.
Mapping fields from your source to the target system is easy. Just select the field in the source system in the drop down box. You can transform the information by clicking the ellipsis (…).
Identity the relationship between the two systems by selecting the key field(s) – just check the checkbox.
If you are provisioning new accounts in the target system, you can select fields that are only populated when a new records is created by selecting the New only checkbox next to the field.
GroupID Synchronize can notify you via email when a job runs. The notification includes whether the job succeeded or not, how many records were changed and the log file as an attachment.
GroupID Synchronize installs on almost any Windows machine without the need for additional databases or requiring specially trained administrators.
Reliable: Uses Microsoft Windows installer technology
GroupID Synchronize can easily be deployed using Microsoft Windows Installer features, such as advertisement and silent install.
Built with Microsoft .NET
