User management API
iProva can operate stand-alone and features a fully functional user management, where users and user groups can be created manually. In most cases, organizations choose to connect iProva to their Active Directory infrastructure. Users and user groups are then automatically synchronized from Active Directory to iProva (one-way sync). This requires the iProva add-on i+Sync.
A SOAP API for user management is available, independent of the iProva modules which are licensed.
The API allows CRUD (Create Read Update Delete) operations on users and user groups.
When an organization has its iProva connected to Active Directory, there usually is no need to interact with the iProva user management API. In cases where no Active Directory is present, the user management API can sometimes be used to establish a synchronization of users and groups with another kind of directory.
The SOAP API for iProva User Management can be used to accomplish the scenario’s listed below:
- Retrieving information about existing user accounts and user groups
- Creating users and user groups
- Performing certain operations on existing users and user groups
