Advanced Provider is a secure enterprise technology family for writing to enterprise identity management life-cycle endpoints. The endpoints include Microsoft Identity Manager portal and sync engine, Active Directory, SQL Server, and RestAPI. Canopy is used by Identity Panel’s Service Panel, Recovery Panel™, and MIM DevTest™ to deliver requests and changes to target systems.
Unlike Identity Panel Providers, which scan and collect data and system information, Advanced Provider is our family of provider add-ons that writes and edits the respective target system. By allowing products like MIM DevTest, Service Panel, and Recovery Panel sit upon Advanced Provider platform, they can share a single application layer for provisioning and modifying target systems like Active Directory, Microsoft Identity Manager Portal, Microsoft Identity Manager Sync Engine, and a list of other targets.
