Novell® Identity Manager 3.5.1 is a data sharing and synchronization service that enables applications, directories, and databases to share information. It links scattered information and enables you to establish policies that govern automatic updates to designated systems when identity changes occur.
Identity Manager provides the foundation for account provisioning, security, single sign-on, user self-service, authentication, authorization, automated workflows, and Web services. It allows you to integrate, manage, and control your distributed identity information so you can securely deliver the right resources to the right people.
This guide provides detailed reference on Policy Builder and Driver Configuration using Designer for Identity Manager 3.5.1.
There is a reference section for the pre-Identity Manager 3.5 Policy Builder.
This guide is intended for Identity Manager administrators.
