VNCdirectory for your secure account management

The professional directory service for VNClagoon

VNCdirectory enables the full VNClagoon software stack to be used with Single-Sign-On (SSO) and one set of credentials. With VNCdirectory, the creation and management of new users boils down to a few clicks in one centralized admin-interface in contrast to adding the user in each application. It provides user provisioning procedures for all VNClagoon products, also integrated with external directories.

Manage all users (their user information and contact details), accounts, group memberships, permissions and access in VNCdirectory. Create, change and deactivate users of all subscribed VNClagoon products in one central place.

Users can be managed in organisations, departments and teams with granular roles and permissions.

The VNClagoon Start Page, from where you can navigate to the VNClagoon products you are subscribed to, is also managed within VNCdirectory.

Optionally, VNCdirectory includes an ITIL-based Helpdesk module, with which you can manage your VNClagoon support tickets professionally.

VNClagoon Authentication

The VNClagoon software suite uses VNCdirectory as central user management and “single-point-of-administration” application, accessible via web-client. All user data is stored in a PostgreSQL database structure. VNCdirectory provides a RestfulAPI interface that addresses the complete functionality as well, which allows the attachment of additional 3rd party applications. It can provide data in structured formats (JSON, XML). Interfaces can be modified by adjusting the respective properties to suit the needs of external applications .

The various VNClagoon applications authenticate against the VNCdirectory database via the VNClagoon Identity Provider called “VNCidp”. The VNCidp natively supports the SAML and OIDC Protocols.

External authentication sources can be integrated, using the VNClagoon VLDAP application that serves as an interface between VNCdirectory and LDAP based authentication.
