Application (concept)



Application is an essential concept in identity management. It represents an application or an application-like service in an organization. It is distinct from the concept of identity resource, as one identity resource can be used to manage many applications. E.g. directory services such as Active Directory are often used as an identity repository for numerous applications. Access to such application is managed indirectly using the directory service, instead of direct integration with the application. However, midPoint (and the users) need to know about the applications, as applications and their data are the information assets that need to be managed. In midPoint, an application is a pre-defined archetype, making application a sub-type of service concept.
