Security and Access Management Framework

Coforge’s SAM framework enables organizations to accelerate their development processes by reducing the efforts involved in creating user management modules for Appian applications. The Appian based application provides the creation of user and role functionality without updating single lines of code in the existing application. SAM also provides a role functionality matrix with one click security control and an export/import role functionality matrix.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES

  • Initial investment required for creating user management
  • User details and roles not stored in RDBMS
  • Excessive efforts for production support team for building user management reports
  • Less clarity of application user role security
  • Decentralized user management data
  • Additional testing efforts if security gets changed within the application
  • Technology specific user management data

SOLUTION OVERVIEW

The SAM framework can be used to control the security aspects of any application within various roles. The solution provides a matrix UI for role and functionality mapping which allows the user to change the security of application functionality with one click.

SAM FRAMEWORK

KEY COMPONENTS

ROLE FUNCTIONALITY MATRIX

This framework provides:

  • Easy way of controlling the security of the whole application through a single UI and with one click
  • Auditing of application security can be reviewed through a simple UI which non-technical users can also use
  • Through minimal changes, SAM can be used to control the security and access of any existing application

FEATURES & BUSINESS BENEFITS

  • 360 degree view of application security
  • Controlling the security of multiple applications from a centralized location
  • Import/export of role-functionality matrix feature to simplify the work over large data set
  • SAM framework can be easily modified from its base version as per the client need
  • Users can add/remove access of functionality to the role with one click
  • Ability to mark specific functionality as default, ensuring that special access doesn’t need to be specifically configured
  • Easy to generate production support user management reports
  • Highly scalable framework which can integrate small to large Appian application with minimal changes
