Visual Identity Suite (VIS)

July 2020

Version 2.4.0

July 6, 2020

New Features
  • New, simplified role design includes intelligence that proposes Smart Roles to the designer. The VIS intelligence engine utilizes existing role definitions and overall access relationships to generate an optimum set of roles, that are proposed to the user, who may accept, modify, and save any of these proposed role definitions. The role designer and the VIS system can create roles to publish quickly for use within an Access Management system, such as Core Access in AAS.
  • Role definition view enables users to view and manage role definitions by providing a list of roles on one axis and a list of entitlements along the other axis. Users are now able to simultaneously see multiple role definitions and easily identify any role overlap or duplication.
  • A new matrix screen enables users to view a list of users on one axis and a list of roles on the other axis, which provides the user with a view of which roles have been assigned to each user. The matrix utilizes the existing controls to filter the data set to a manageable volume, such as selecting users with a specific job title or users in a specific department.
  • All matrix views now have a new display control. Users can click a button and swap the axis that the data is displayed on; this enables users to control the viewing area based upon their preference.
  • When using the matrix views, users can select filtering criteria to narrow the focus of the displayed information. Users can now specify how they want their filtering criteria treated when they select multiple items by toggling the Any/All button in the filter panel.
  • Automatic adjustment of the matrix view in response to the role selection. Depending upon which matrix view the user is utilizing, the amount of data may exceed the capacity of the viewing area. Therefore, as the user selects or deselects items to view, the matrix will automatically adjust the viewing area to display all the selected items so the user can see where they are located within the overall matrix.
  • VIS branding has been updated to reflect Core Security as a HelpSystems company.
  • Expanded role design capabilities. A user can edit, publish, and delete roles. Unpublished roles can be viewed in a work area, where designers prepare the roles for publishing to an access management system, such as Core Access in the Core Access Assurance Suite (AAS).
  • Enhanced role design capability separates published (shared w/ AAS) and unpublished (local) roles. Users can use theRole Management panel to work with published, unpublished, and Smart Roles in their separate categories.
  • Enhanced control over search filters enabling users to control how multiple selections in the filter are treated.
  • All searches with in VIS, both VIS Role Designer and VIS Certify, are now case-insensitive to enable users to search VIS easier.
  • Improved file import process uses workflow-like steps and provides templates. The environmental data is uploaded into VIS via an admin file import process implementing a step-by-step workflow to help ensure that the data is properly aligned and stored in the system.
Other Fixes
  • Fixed issue where draft roles imported in a Role Details CSV delete user-role relationships if the role already exists in VIS.
  • In the Views panel of Role Designer, the full names of users in the Managers section are displayed instead of the ID.
  • When creating or editing a role, Users and Entitlements can be removed using the tables in the Mapping tab.

  • Target names of entitlements are now highlighted for ease of use.

These passwords must be at lease eight characters long, contain at least one upper case character, one lower case character, one digit, and one special character.
  • SSO will display an error message if a password fails the password strength check.
