Regardless of whether your organization has 50 or 50,000 employees, it most likely has dozens of apps that users sign into. Controlling access to these apps is OneLogin’s primary purpose and it achieves this in several ways.
Depending on the particular app, it may have one or more of the following capabilities.
- Signing users in
- Provisioning and deprovisioning users
- Federated search
Apps are instances of connectors, which define OneLogin capabilities with respect to an app. If you are familiar with object-oriented programming, apps would be objects and connectors would be classes. A less technical analogy would be documents and templates. For an in-depth description, read Understanding Connectors.
