CzechIdM 10.7.0

The main goal of version 10.7.0 was to simplify the creation of new systems and bring support for two-factor authentication..

Less user-visible, but all the more important tasks were, for example:

  • The order of EAV attributes can now be changed directly in the table using drag and drop.
  • Virtual systems now support new actions for bulk cancellations or confirmation of requests.
  • The bulk role duplication action now supports copying authorization policies.
  • And much more …

Two-factor authentication is an important means of increasing security. In an IdM environment, the use of two-factor authentication is ideal for administrators, where it is crucial to ensure the maximum level of security for their accounts.

Feature is available from user profile (user main menu) in application. Two-factor authentication is optional and can be enabled from user profile:

After user sign in to CzechIdM using username and password, user will be prompted to provide an authentication code from a text message (notification) or from TOTP application. CzechIdM will only ask to provide two-factor authentication code again if user have logged out, is using a new device, or user session expires.

Supported methods to get authentication code:

  • Application - authentication code is generated by TOTP application (Google Authenticator, TOTP Authenticator, FreeOTP etc.).
  • Sms notification - authentication code is send by standard IdM notification. Sms notifications have to be supported to use this method (sms notification sender needs to be provided).

The first authentication code obtained by selected method is needed to enable using two-factor authentication:

The first step in creating a new system is to select a connector. For better UX, we have created a new page, where each connector is displayed as a separate box, which can be newly enriched with a more detailed description and image of the connected system.

In the previous version, a universal wizard for creating a system was added. In this version, we focused on creating specialized wizards that simplify the configuration of the connector.

For example, in the case of a CSV wizard, the user does not have to fill in the location of the CSV file on the server, but can simply use the drag and drop zone to upload the file. Another simplification is the selection of the primary identifier, where the user does not have to remember the name of 'columns' in the CSV file, but they are all read from the file and offered in the selectbox.

Another specialized wizard is used to connect database tables. Previously, the user had to configure the attributes that are charged to the database. For example, the name of the database driver, the mask for the composition of the resulting URL, etc. Now the user is exempt from this and the wizard does this for him. Currently, three wizards are available for connecting database tables for PostgresSql, MS SQL server and MySQL. The wizard for the given database type is displayed only if the given IdM installation has the necessary database driver available.
