Identity Management connection to cloud services

10. Identity Management connection to cloud services#

UCS offers an integrated Identity Management System. Through Univention Management Console, users and groups among others can be administered. Depending on the installed services, these identities are made available through different interfaces e.g. via LDAP.

The management system can be extended with the help of provided extensions, also called apps. Thus users or groups can also be replicated in cloud services. In the App Center there are also among others extensions for Microsoft 365 or G Suite.

Thanks to single sign-on (SSO), users can sign in with their usual password and immediately get to work online in the cloud. The password remains in the company’s network and is not transferred to the cloud service.

The following chapter describes how to set up the Microsoft 365 Connector and the Google Apps for Work Connector.
