2017 – The Year of midPoint Training Courses

This year (2017) was full of training courses. Literally, there was almost no month without any training. Some took place in our office in Bratislava, Slovakia, some were remote/online sessions, but most of them were onsite, which meant a lot of travelling. I travelled to Canada and United States, later also to Finland. I experienced my first transatlantic flight,[…]

Evolveum open source pledge

Our names are Igor Farinič and Radovan Semančík. Although you might have noticed our names you are probably not aware that we are the founders of Evolveum. Evolveum is not based on venture capital investments and therefore the control of the company is firmly in our hands. And now we would like to very clearly[…]

Real life story of SCIMv1 and ConnId, Part 2

When our interconnection of various services by using midPoint, SCIMv1 protocol and Connid framework was ready, we proceeded to testing. While looking around for services supporting the SCIM protocol we stumbled upon two quite popular ones. Salesforce and Slack which both support the SCIM 1.1 specification but both on their own way with a couple of[…]

Using the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) protocol seems as a road to take. We are also working with the connId framework. It provides a means for building identity connectors in a more[…]

Services and Things

Evolveum midPoint is a very comprehensive system. It can manage identities, roles and organizational structures. Simply speaking it can manage anything that is at least marginally related to the concept of identity. Yet until quite recently support for one broad area was missing and it was added in midPoint 3.4. Now midPoint can also manage[…]

MidPoint Development Tools for Eclipse

In version 3.4 midPoint has got a really nice GUI. It is well suited for operational tasks. However, it lacks some features to support development and maintenance of really complex midPoint deployments. Main pain points are perhaps missing integration with git (or other version control systems) and limited support for editing complex XML objects. Because[…]

FOSDEM 2016 and my first talk

FOSDEM 2016 and my first talk?

On Monday, I travelled back home from FOSDEM Conference which I was attending for the second time. Last year I was only an attendee enjoying the atmosphere made by all these open-source positive people, but this year I decided to move further and try to apply for a talk. When I was sending a proposal[…]

Infrastructure Provisioning in context of organization

At present, companies go for moving their infrastructure to the clouds, which became synonyms for cost efficiency. Instead of using public cloud, why not to create your own exactly according to your needs? OpenStack is one of the options there for you. By deploying identity management system (midpoint) in different companies I learnt people have different[…]
