With UCS 5.2 Keycloak will become the standard IDP for SAML and OpenID Connect authentication and will replace the current SimpleSAMLPHP and Kopano Connect apps. Read more about the big picture in our blog article Migration of the Identity Provider in UCS – Keycloak App now Part of the Support Scope. The first step we made was the release of Keycloak as a supported Univention app at the end of 2022. Since then, a lot of work has been done to make the Keycloak app a worthy replacement for the SimpleSAMLphp integration.
So, we are making steady progress on our mission to reach feature parity with our SimpleSAMLphp integration. And since the initial release of the Keycloak app, we have also released several app updates each adding new features in terms of a smooth integration into UCS and more configurability.
In this article, we would like to showcase some of the work that has been done over the last few months.
