HYBRID ENHANCEMENTS, INCLUDING SINGLE-FOREST/MULTI-DOMAIN
As organizations transition to Azure AD, their on-premises Active Directory server needs to be synchronized during what could be an extended period of time for the transition. The CoreView hybrid agent facilities this coordination, and now can set a Password expiration time for on-premises users, to force the cut-over when ready.
Even more impactful than ending the transition, CoreView has also expanded the AD constructs supported. Since many organizations want to manage multiple domains as a single forest in Active Directory, CoreView is pleased to announce this is now supported with the 20.08 release, enabling more organizations to effectively undertake the transition to Azure AD and use CoreView to support it.
And upon using CoreFlow you may immediately notice how much faster it is to perform activity on Exchange objects. It is now in near real time, without the need to wait for a full import to run which can take a day!
CORESAAS INTEGRATION WITH COREFLOW
Probably one of the most significant enhancements to the CoreView portfolio and platform, however, is the integration and enhancements to the CoreSaaS solution. CoreSaaS already discovers a seemingly already exhaustive list of SaaS applications, and it now discovers applications using AD Federation Services, and allows management of Gsuite licenses.
Thus, as IT manages the M365 environment, and other SaaS applications, CoreFlow can now provision and deprovision users’ access to myriad SaaS applications as well as M365 environments.
Also in support of Custom Actions, SharePoint PowerShell Modules are now available for customer actions, which allow specific actions to be performed on targeted SharePoint objects.
COREFLOW IMPROVED WITH DYNAMIC MAPPING
CoreFlow automates actions and processes for consistancy and reducing admin mistakes, including approvals such as to add new users or delete inactive or external users. In setting up workflows, choices now include dynamic workflows, where instead of asking a simple Yes/No, workflows can now ask complex choices. In addition to the complex filters added in the last release, including filtering on OR, workflows with the 20.08 release now include dynamic mapping of input fields, which can then be included in workflows. These dynamic fields further expand the options for workflows, so that as users are added, these input fields can define new fields, like the email username being created during execution as a specific combination of the first and last names input. This option or change during the execution adds flexibility and allows workflows to adapt to what is needed in organizations.
IMPROVED GOVERNANCE WITH MULTI PERMISSIONS
- PSTN calls, enablng admins to control and track phone calls performed through PSTN and thus optimize the cost of these calls.
- Microsoft 365 application usage – reports allow you to instantaneously check the activity of your users with the following applications:
- Office Pro Plus Activity in addition to the existing visibility for Word, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Teams.
- Easier to see a user’s timezone – in the time format or date format of that user? To do this in PowerShell would have required another 5 seconds per user, so one of our large customer 300K+ users was able to get this info for the whole tenant in few seconds instead of 300,000 x 5 seconds = 8,333 HOURS!
