SecureAuth Connector update

If you have SecureAuth® Identity Platform release 19.07 or later, you should use the latest version of the SecureAuth Connector. Use this guide to check your SecureAuth Connector version and update as necessary.

For more information about the latest SecureAuth Connector version, see the SecureAuth compatibility guide.

Prerequisites and dependencies

  • Identity Platform release 19.07 or later, cloud deployment

  • As a system administrator tasked with setting up the Identity Platform for your organization, you must have access to the same email used to provision and authenticate your access to the Identity Platform

  • Access to a local data store server containing your data stores

  • Recommended installation on a standalone box. At this time, the Connector is not certified for use on the Identity Platform on-premises appliance or a domain controller.

  • At minimum, the local data store server must have the following system requirements (the same configuration also applies to virtual machines):

    Operating Systems

    Specifications

    Ports to open

    Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit)

    Windows Server 2016 (64-bit)

    Windows Server 2019

    Internet Explorer 11+ or later

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later

    Disk: 200MB

    RAM: 4GB

    Open port 443 to the data store

    Open port pkc-4nym6.us-east-1.aws.confluent.cloud:9092 and add this to your firewall allow list

    Open any other ports to the data stores (for example, port 389 to the Active Directory)

    Note

    Be sure to install or update Microsoft .NET to 4.7.2 or later, as this requires a system reboot before you can download and install the Connector.
