Identity Virtualization for BPM – or Using Multiple Directories

We often get questions about how to configure BPM to use multiple identity providers (directories, database, etc.) so that users of BPM Workspace (for example) can be authenticated against different providers.

A little known fact about BPM is that it includes identity virtualization support through libOVD.  It is not necessary to install a full blown OVD or to set up custom DB authenticators, etc.  You can just use libOVD.

My colleague Christopher Karl Chan from Denmark has a good introduction to this topic here which I would encourage you to read if you are looking at this kind of requirement.
