System connectors

Also refered as plugins, are little pieces of software able to manage identities on some type of systems. They can be generic plugins (SQL or LDAP plugins) or custom specific plugins.

The system connector is configured when the administrator creates an agent. An agent can be viewed as a configured instance of a plugin.

In order to upgrade existing (running) plugins, the synchronization server that hosts this plugin must be restarted from the system monitoring screen.

Console addons

Add important features to Soffid console. A console addon can contain common classes, data models, transactional services, web services, and web interfaces.

In order to apply addon changes, the console must be restarted. It can be restarted from within this page, pressing the restart console button.

From the addon management screen, you will be able to upload and upgrade server plugins, as well and enable or disable them.
