The ICF framework supports the following interfaces:
Some connectors support only a subset of these interfaces.
Normalize attributes to ensure consistent filtering.
Provides simple authentication with two parameters, presumed to be a username and password. IDM requires the connector to implement the
AuthenticateOpinterface in order to provide pass-through authentication.
Execute a series of operations in a single request. If a resource does not support batch operations, the connector will not implement the batch operation interface. The ICF framework will still support batched requests but the operations will be executed iteratively through the connector.
- Connector Event
Subscribe for notification of any specified event on the target resource. This operation can be used in the context of IoT device reports, to receive notification of events such as low battery signals, inactive devices, and so on.
Create an object and return its UID.
Delete an object by its UID.
Get an object by its UID.
Use pools of target resources.
- Resolve Username
Resolve an object to its UID based on its username.
Describe supported object types, operations, and options.
- Script on Connector
Allow script execution on the connector.
- Script On Resource
Allow script execution on the resource.
Allow searches for resource objects.
Connectors that implement only this interface can only be used for reconciliation operations.
Poll for synchronization events, which are native changes to target objects.
- Sync Event
Subscribe for notification of synchronization events, which are native changes to target objects.
Test the connection configuration, including connecting to the resource.
Allows an authorized caller to update (modify or replace) objects on the target resource.
- Update Attribute Values
Allows an authorized caller to update (modify or replace) attribute values on the target resource. This operation is more advanced than the
UpdateOpoperation, and provides better performance and atomicity semantics.
