Learn about the changes for attributes in the June 2022 release of the Cloud Identity Engine app.
The following table provides a snapshot of new features introduced for the Cloud Identity Engine app in June 2022. Refer to the Cloud Identity Engine documentation for more information on how to use the Cloud Identity Engine.
Feature
Description
Client credential authentication for Azure Active Directory
Using a service account for the Cloud Identity Engine app is strongly recommended, as this is a more secure method for directory access and does not require the account to be associated with a specific user. When you grant just two read-only permissions for the Cloud Identity Engine to your Azure AD, the Client Credential Flow option for Azure AD in the Cloud Identity Engine allows you to configure a service account for your Azure AD in the Cloud Identity Engine app.
Changes for directory attributes
The June 2022 release for the Cloud Identity Engine includes the following directory attribute changes:
  • For on-premises Active Directory, the Cloud Identity Engine now supports the Admin Count (
    adminCount
    ) attribute for Users, Groups, and Computers.
  • For Google Directory, the Location attribute is now
    locations.area
    .
Refer to the Cloud Identity Engine documentation for more information on about the attributes that the Cloud Identity Engine collects.
