Identity Cloud


Connectors are a tool to connect Identity Cloud to external resources and services and are built using the ForgeRock Open Connector Framework (ICF). Some connectors are built into Identity Cloud to let you easily connect to data stores in other services and are configurable using the IDM admin UI (native console). Additional connectors are available to set up and run remotely using a remote connector server (RCS).

Built-in connectors

Identity Cloud includes several built-in connectors to connect easily to data stores in other services. These built-in connectors are accessed through the IDM admin UI (native console).

Adobe Marketing Cloud connector

The Adobe Marketing Cloud connector lets you manage profiles in an Adobe Campaign data store.

Google Apps connector

The Google Apps connector lets you interact with Google’s web applications.

Marketo connector

The Marketo connector lets you synchronize between IDM user identities and a Marketo Lead Database.

Microsoft Graph API connector

The Microsoft Graph API connector lets you manage users and groups in a Microsoft Azure tenant and lets you synchronize users and groups between IDM and Azure.

Salesforce connector

The Salesforce connector enables provisioning, reconciliation, and synchronization between Salesforce and the IDM repository.

SCIM connector

The SCIM connector is based on the Simple Cloud Identity Management (SCIM) protocol and lets you manage user and group accounts on any SCIM-compliant resource provider, such as Slack, Facebook, or SalesForce.

ServiceNow connector

The ServiceNow connector lets you manage objects in the ServiceNow platform, integrating with ServiceNow’s REST API.

SuccessFactors connector

The SuccessFactors connector lets you synchronize user accounts between IDM and the SAP SuccessFactors HR system.

Workday connector

The Workday connector lets you synchronize user accounts between IDM and Workday’s cloud-based HR system.

For information about provisioning connectors in the application management section of Identity Cloud, refer to Provision settings for an application.

Remote connectors

ForgeRock provides many additional connectors that can be run remotely for continuous, two-way synchronization with external data stores that reside on-premises, in a private cloud, or in a public cloud.

Remote connectors run on a remote connector server (RCS) hosted outside of Identity Cloud. They communicate inbound with your Identity Cloud tenant.

Step-by-step instructions for configuring Identity Cloud and an RCS using the Identity Cloud admin UI are included in Sync identities.

For further details for installing and configuring an RCS, refer to Remote connectors in the ICF documentation.

When used with Identity Cloud, the RCS must be configured to initiate the connection to Identity Cloud, also known as client mode. This configuration is included in the step-by-step instructions if you are configuring your RCS using the Identity Cloud admin UI.

If you are configuring Identity Cloud and your RCS through REST, refer to Configure RCS in client mode in the ICF documentation.
