Connect your system to IDAC

More and more systems and user groups at KI are being integrated into IDAC to gain better control of their lifecycle management of user accounts and authorisations, but also to make it easier to follow up on assigned authorisations.

Connecting systems and groups to IDAC

Karolinska Institutet's Identity and Access system (IDAC) was implemented in 2019 and is an important function to ensure that "the right individual has access to the right authorisation at the right time, for the right reasons".

More and more systems at KI are being integrated into IDAC in order to achieve better control of the lifecycle management of user accounts and authorisations, but also to make it easier to follow up on assigned authorisations over time. 

Choices for system connection

There are three possible options for connecting to IDAC, and the most suitable method varies depending on the capabilities of the connecting system. To implement system connection in the best way, we need to jointly specify a set of requirements, what the application requires and the technical connection possibilities.

Prerequisites

If a connecting system is to be integrated into IDAC, certain conditions must be established. These prerequisites can be:

  • What technical connectivity does the connecting system have (REST, SCIM, OData, etc.)?
  • How and what data is expected to flow?
  • Establish a set of requirements for managing accounts and authorisations.
  • Establish test cases.
  • Establish test environment.
  • Define schedule.
