Description: Internal representation of Data & relationships inside IDM


OpenIDM has a flexible "Managed Object" structure - not a "normalized structure"

Entity attribute value table - Allows for serialization?

Managed Object tbl

Managed object properties tbl


You can review how data is configured in the repo.json (under config dir) and contains:

Predefined queries

Object "layout" and properties


Performance implications of what you declare and where - so it's up to you / SI to determine what fits well in your implementation


Relationships - and how we manage related values

Another table called "relationships"

Resource path of Object A and How it related to resource path of Object B

Example of creating a user + a role


Meta-Directory / Virtual Directory use case: Building a "golden record" to centralize a set of authoritative sources to build an authoritative record to be managed centrally

Policy management can be regulated (like password policy)
