Technical Introduction: Delegated User Management

The delegated user management (DUM) feature is an add-on application for your Onegini Consumer Identity Manager platform. It is a ready-to-use feature that enables a company to provide selected third-party contacts with access to their insurance policies and contracts through their Onegini Consumer Identity Manager platform in a secure way. It can be configured easily for the needs of different industries and client-types.

The feature consists of both the front-end and the core applications:

DUM consists of two components:

  • The core application (aka DUM Engine) is a backend component that comes with a REST API interface. The application is deployed in a docker container. The application handles authentication with Basic Auth and also through the SAML protocol.
  • The front-end (aka DUM Application) is a web application that offers a user interface. The DUM web application is considered a DUM Engine web client. An end-user can access business functionality of the application through a clear user interface. In addition, it includes other functionality such as assigning contacts.

The pages within this site focus on the DUM Application.
