New year is here and with it there is a new energy and new plans. There is a lot that we plan for 2020. This year is going to be exciting.
MidPoint survey results are in. MidPoint users had the chance to express their opinions about midPoint development and thus influence the future of midPoint. And many users did that – and by doing so, they managed to change the course of midPoint development.
There are many new features in midPoint 4.0, code-named “Gutenberg”. Archetype functionality is one of the big new things. Archetypes allow to divide objects to a very fine types with customized look and behavior. However, there is almost infinite ways how to sort and present objects. Archetypes would not be enough on their own. Therefore there is a companion feature that is focused on customized grouping and presentation of objects: collections and view.
Evolveum s.r.o. with CEO Igor Farinic, with a head office in Slovakia, Central Europe, has developed an open source software midPoint. People of Evolveum realize the importance of security and governance in administrating user’s identities. MidPoint represents efficient and innovative solution for organizations all over the world combining identity management and identity governance. Its uniqueness Read more about EVOLVEUM and NOMURA RESEARCH INSTITUTE enter strategic Partnership Agreement to offer midPoint, OSS software for delivering Identity Administration and Governance in Japan[…]
MidPoint 4.0.1 was released. It is a first update in a long-term support (LTS) release family code-named Gutenberg. There are many bugfixes and a handful of minor improvements. MidPoint 4.0.1 is a start of a long journey.
First October weekend was kicked off with midPoint community event. MidPoint made its little history. EU FOSSA 2 program organized 3rd Hackathon event where midPoint community has met face to face for the first time. The weekend full of ideas, discussions, brainstorming, bonding and amazing vibe. That is how midPoint community gathering looked like. We Read more about First global midPoint community meet up[…]
MidPoint 4.0 “Gutenberg” is really a revolutionary midPoint release. It is a long-term support (LTS) release. But it also brings groundbreaking features. The support for archetypes is certainly one of those features that can be a real game-changer in the future. First part of this post told the story how the idea of archetypes evolved during the course of midPoint development. This part will describe how archetypes work and how they can be used. […]
MidPoint 4.0 was released. Code-named Gutenberg, it is twenty-eighth midPoint release. MidPoint 4.0 is a major milestone in midPoint development. Similarly to the Gutenberg’s printing system, midPoint 4.0 provides a set of elements whose, when combined together, can create revolutionary solutions. Gutenberg was a long-waited release. It took some time to finish all the changes Read more about MidPoint 4.0 “Gutenberg”[…]
MidPoint 3.4 code-named “Heisenberg” was released a few days ago. This is the sixteenth midPoint release since the project started all these long years ago. MidPoint went a very long way since then.
The Heisenberg release is the best midPoint release yet. We have finished access certification functionality, which makes midPoint the very first open source product to enter the identity governance and compliance playing field. We have also improved midPoint internals to better handle inconsistencies of resource data and we have also made many small internal improvements to increase robustness. This was one of the inspirations for the code-name. Similarly to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle midPoint accepts that there is a degree of uncertainty when it comes to processing of the identity data. It may not be practically possible to always base the decisions on authoritative data. Practical identity management system needs to accept that the identity data are always in a state of flux – and midPoint does just that. And it manages the data reliably even in situations where other systems fail miserably. […]
