4.0 Bidirectional Overview

The Bidirectional driver provides complete integration with Identity Manager for full data and password synchronization. This driver provides data customization with Identity Manager policies, using standard security system commands. Each subscribed eDirectory™ data change event is converted into a security system command. Security system commands are captured and published to Identity Manager for appropriate eDirectory updates.

5.0 Fan-Out Overview

The Fan-Out driver provides for delegated logic and control to your system administrators. You can process any Identity Manager data change event with a script on the platform. The Fan-Out driver provides for fan-out to hundreds of systems from a single driver. Authentication redirection provides login support for Universal Password, accessing a central repository for login and password rules. Full bidirectional password synchronization is also supported.

The Fan-Out driver has two components: the Core Driver and Platform Services. The Core Driver provides event fan-out to target platforms running Platform Services. A single core driver can support many platforms running Platform Services, regardless of platform operating system.
