The Guest Account Management Solution offers lifecycle management of third-party organizations and delegated administration for those organizations’ users. Delegated administration is offered thru three mechanisms for organizations to manage guest account access to shared assets and applications:
- Identity provider technology supporting SCIM provisioning – “Bring your own IDP” option
- An intuitive, easy-to-use delegated administration console
- File uploads via FTP
The solution uniquely allows third-party organizations to use their existing identity providers (e.g., Okta, Azure AD, etc.) that support SCIM to directly manage their users in the central organization’s global directory, which can be any directory technology (e.g., Okta, Azure AD, ForgeRock, etc.). This "Any to Any Directory" support is a unique feature of the solution. Also, an easy-to-use delegated administration user interface option is available for non-technical users. Thus, the user of this interface does not need to have identity directory administration skills, knowledge, or certifications. Lastly, for smaller organizations, a file option is available for a simple file upload of allowed users and their rights. Third-party organization on- and off-boarding workflow offers both invitation-based and self-registration options.
