miniOrange provides the facility to host identities in a private directory which can be provisioned as per requiremenent. Once a directory is provisioned, user management(user provisioning, user-deprovisioning, password management, access levels) is done from the directory. Connection to third party applications with the directory is provided with various connectors.
miniOrange Directory Services can be used by both cloud service and on-premise service for authentication. Using miniOrange, any SAML enabled cloud service can authenticate using identities stored in the Directory Services. The cloud service has the role of a Service Provider(SP), Directory Services is the Identity Store and miniOrange acts as the Identity Provider(IdP) connecting the Directory Services and cloud service providing authentication and management. Any on-premise service which supports LDAP authentication can also authenticate using identities stores in Directory Services.
Here we will show the example of how to configure a cloud service, Google Apps, to authenticate using identities in Directory Services.
Step 1: Configure Single Sign On (SSO) Settings for Google Apps
Step 2: Add a Directory
Step 3: Setup Provisioning for Directory
Step 4: Test Authentication from Directory
Here we will show the example of how to configure an on-premise service, OpenVPN, to authenticate using identities in Directory Services.
Step 1: Add Directory
Step 2: Configure Directory in OpenVPN
Step 3: Test Authentication from Directory
