Manage SecureAuth Connector groups

In the SecureAuth® Identity Platform cloud deployments, you can assign SecureAuth Connectors and data stores into Connector groups. Use this for peak efficiency with failovers and to segment your data stores.

Some technical details:

  • You can have multiple Connectors and data stores in a Connector group.

  • You can assign a Connector only to one group at a time.

  • You can assign a data store only to one group at a time.

  • When a Connector is first installed, it is not assigned to any group. You will need to assign it to a Connector group.

  • If a data store is not assigned to a Connector group, it will use all the available Connectors to reach the data store.

  • When you add or edit a data store, you can also assign a defined Connector group in the data store settings.
