HelloID gives your organization powerful automation and scripting tools, which you can use to create tasks that do nearly anything in your organization's IT environment. In order to run those tasks, HelloID needs to talk to a piece of software in your environment called the HelloID Agent.
The HelloID Agent comprises three Windows services that run on a member server within your organization's network. One or more Agent instances are installed into one or more Agent Pools, which handle load balancing and separation of duties. Each Agent is configured to talk directly to your organization's HelloID instance via HTTPS. Agents are responsible for operational processing, including:
- Authenticating login requests when Active Directory is your IdP
- Executing on-premise tasks like:
- Executing approved self-service requests
- Data share management operations, such as granting access to file folders
- ...and more. Because the HelloID Agent is installed in your organization's network, it is possible to use HelloID to manage resources inside of your network such as folders, groups, users, and nearly any other IT resource you can think of.
