Adaxes

By Jenny Sheppard

Adaxes 2019.1 is here! It brings highly requested support for SAML-based single sign-on, new features for Exchange, Web Interface usability enhancements as well as a bunch of other improvements and updates.

Single sign-on with SAML

By using SAML authentication you can integrate Adaxes with your corporate identity provider to enable single sign-on for the Web Interface. SAML-based authentication allows users to sign in with the same authentication mechanisms that you use within the rest of your organization.

Adaxes can communicate with any identity provider that supports SAML 2.0, including Okta, OneLogin, Auth0, Azure AD, Duo, ADFS and others.

Exchange

Exchange management and automation was one of the core areas we focused on for this release. We have added support for new mailbox types, enhanced the management of permissions in Exchange, improved mailbox provisioning and deprovisioning, introduced many other new features and enhancements.

Room and equipment mailboxes

The new version adds support for room and equipment resource mailboxes. For example, using Web Interface and Administration Console it is now possible to view or change how a room mailbox handles meeting requests, who can accept or decline booking requests, when the room can be scheduled, how long it can be reserved, etc.
