VMware Identity Manager with Directory Services

The admin is enabled to consolidate a list of the organization’s suggested Web apps and native mobile apps using VMware Identity Manager together with Workspace ONE UEM in unified application catalogs. Workspace ONE UEM is not allowed to receive directory changes from Identity Manager by this functionality. End-users must sign in only once using Workspace ONE after directory integration settings are configured between the Workspace ONE UEM instance and VMware Identity Manager. Access to all your organization’s available apps is enabled with a Single sign-on without the need to sign in each time.

Requirements

complete the following before the admin can integrate directory services with VMware Identity Manager:

  • VMware Enterprise Systems is set up and configured with the Workspace ONE UEM environment.
  • For the selected organization group, set up and configure Directory service integration and not inherit settings from a parent organization group.
  • Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA) within the VMware Identity Manager console. This EULA shows when the admin first opens the Console.

Between Workspace ONE UEM and VMware Identity Manager Synchronization Procedure

Directory information Synchronization in between Workspace ONE UEM and VMware Identity Manager takes place on a similar schedule like the Workspace ONE UEM directory sync. When an administrator adds manually or from a bulk import, users are also immediately synced to VMware Identity Manager.

Also, Just-in-Time provisioning (JIT) is supported by integrating VMware Identity Manager. The first time users log in using an enrollment or self-service portal, users who have directory accounts, their accounts are automatically synced to VMware Identity Manager. Manual synchronisation is not required to immediately add a single user to VMware Identity Manager.

Manage Directory Services Integration with VMware Identity Manager Integration

Between Workspace ONE UEM and Identity Manager, after the admin binds the directory settings, they can perform some management actions within the settings page. Go to groups & Settings, navigate to All Settings, go to system, select Enterprise Integration, click on VMware Identity Manager, and select Configuration.

On the settings page, the admin can perform the following actions:

  • For Directory Services configuration, edit the VMware Identity Management by selecting the Edit button.
  • By selecting the Delete button, delete the Configuration.
  • Within the directory services and VMware Identity Management, initiate a synchronization of the structures by selecting the sync Now button.

Integrate VMware Identity Manager with Directory Services

The admin is enabled to consolidate a list of the organization’s suggested Web apps and native mobile apps using VMware Identity Manager together with Workspace ONE UEM in unified application catalogs. This functionality restricts Workspace ONE UEM from receiving directory changes from Identity Manager. To configure server-related settings, use the following instructions.

  1. Go to Groups & Settings, navigate to All Settings, go to system, select Enterprise Integration, click on VMware Identity Manager, and select Configuration.
  2. Provide the server information.

  • Directory: Based on the existing Directory in Workspace ONE UEM, Workspace ONE UEM imports the directory name. Provide the same directory credentials as used by VMware Identity Manager.
  • Enable Custom Mapping: To map the directory integration in Workspace ONE UEM, enable custom mapping as applicable to VMware Identity Manager so they are in sync.

Most directory service configurations utilize Standard mapping. For customers who have a customized configuration between a directory service and Workspace ONE UEM or have otherwise non-standard directory service, database value mapping Custom mapping attributes are used.

  • External: A user’s source is identified in case multiple users possess the same user name.
