Virtual Directory as an API

July 20, 2013

In only a few years, we have gone from the “new kids on the block” to leader in the industry as the only vendor to actually be creating innovation in the space and we are not done yet.  A bit overshadowed by our Best of TechEd win, Optimal IdM quietly announced back in June that we now offer our award winning Virtual Directory as an API!  “Virtual Identity Server Framework”, is a .NET API that allows developers to fully embed the power of a Virtual Directory directly into their applications.  This removes the additional layer that is traditionally present when connecting to a Virtual Directory.  Now, you can perform all of the typical LDAP operations easily and efficiently.  Authenticating users, LDAP searches, modifies, deletes, adds, compares, etc. all as simple as 1 line of code and without the developer needing to know much about LDAP.

The possibilities become endless with how quickly we can roll out new supporting elements with the API, such as being able to expose VIS to web services (SOAP, REST, WCF, etc.) or being able to now leverage VIS directly from PowerShell.  That’s right as part of this rollout we have used this API to build PowerShell Cmdlets that once again bring the full power of VIS now into PowerShell scripting.
