NO CODE AUTOMATION
What is No Code Automation?
No code automation, also known as workflows, is a technique that allows organizations to automate tasks and processes without requiring coding or programming knowledge. This is particularly useful in the domain of identity and access management (IAM), where organizations need to manage complex and often-changing processes for user onboarding, access provisioning, and compliance.
No code automation allows organizations to create and customize workflows using an admin console. This makes it easy for non-technical users to create and manage workflows, and to quickly adapt to changing requirements or business needs.
How No Code Automation is used in Securify Identity Platform?
With its external directory sync feature, Securify Identity enables organizations to automatically retrieve user information and attributes from external identity providers, such as Active Directory or LDAP, and provision identities in different applications according to a set of rules and queries. This helps organizations maintain a centralized and consistent view of their user identities across all applications, without the need for manual intervention.
The workflows engine in Securify Identity is used to automate and streamline the process of managing user identities and access rights. It consists of three stages: triggers, conditions, and actions. Triggers determine when a workflow is triggered, such as during the creation or update of a user identity from an external directory sync. Conditions determine the rule set for which users the workflow will be executed, such as if the user's department attribute contains the word "Marketing" or the user's title contains the word "manager". Finally, actions determine what actions will be performed if the conditions are met, such as adding users to specific groups or assigning them specific roles.
Overall, Securify Identity's no-code automation capabilities help organizations simplify and automate the process of managing and securing user identities and access, allowing them to focus on more important business tasks.
Workflows are composed of three phases: trigger, condition, and action.
The trigger determines when the workflow will be executed, such as during a sync from an external directory.
Finally, the action phase determines what actions will be taken if the conditions are met, such as assigning the user to specific groups or roles.
The condition is a set of conditional statements that must be met in order for the workflow to proceed, such as if the user's department is Marketing and their title contains the word "manager". These statements can be combined using logical operators such as AND and OR.
NO CODE AUTOMATION
In the context of IAM, no code automation can be used to automate tasks such as user onboarding, assigning groups or roles, and access provisioning. By automating these tasks, organizations can reduce the time and resources spent on manual processes, and can improve the accuracy and consistency of their IAM processes.
