MIM Service Port allows Identity Panel to service SIDM MIM Management Agents. Your Servers Management Agents communicate with the MIM Service Port on Identity Panel. Identity Panel then facilities the remote actions. For example, to provision and Active Directory user account, MIM would communicate with Identity Panel through the MIM Service Port, and Identity Panel would provision the account.
MIM can be hosted anywhere
Because the MIM Service Port uses HTTPS, you can run MIM from anywhere. On-premise MIM installations can using Identity Panel to provision to on-premise and cloud systems. Cloud hosted MIM Servers can provision and manage users account via HTTPS without the need to have a network connection to the on-premise networks. The MIM Service Port makes running MIM as a Service possible.
What is needed
You will need to add the Software Management Agent license to your MIM server. The license come when you have both the provider license and the MIM Service Port license.
Can I run the MIM Service Port on premise
There are advantages to running MIM through the MIM Service Port. You benefit from delta speed performance, and more connectors. You can run MIM Service Port with your on-premise Identity Panel to improve your MIM performance, allow you to choose individually between the built-in Management Agents and the SoftwareIDM Management Agents, giving you the exact Management Agent solution you desire.
Can I run my own ECMA2 Management Agents
Yes, if you own a Data Panel license, the Panel Service consumes ECMA2, allowing you to use your ECMA2 code over HTTPS, from a cloud hosted MIM Server. Cool!
