B2ACCESS account (de)provisioning tool

Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/b2accessdeprovisioning.svg

A Python tool for handling the (de)provisioning of B2ACCESS user accounts.

The b2accessdeprovisioning tool can be used to retrieve the list of permanently disabled B2ACCESS user accounts via Unity’s Administration API. For each of the disabled accounts, the tool performs the following operations:

  1. immediate removal of assigned attributes (excluding user identifiers)
  2. scheduled removal of all account information after a given period of time

Finally, the tool sends a notification to one or more recipients containing the list of deprovisioned accounts.

Features

  • B2ACCESS integration via Unity’s Administration API v1
  • Attribute whitelisting to indicate information that should be saved when removing account data; otherwise the tool removes all attributes assigned to permanently disabled B2ACCESS user accounts
  • Adjustable duration of time for which the records of deprovisioned users should be maintained
  • Email notifications via SMTP containing deprovisioned account information in json format

Python version

Python 2.6 or 2.7 are fully supported.

Installation

To install the tool, simply run:

$ pip install b2accessdeprovisioning
