What's New in Access Rights Manager 2022.4?

We’re pleased to announce the latest version of SolarWinds® Access Rights Manager (ARM) - version 2022.4.  

The features and updates continue to help you provide simplified self-service permission management with audit capabilities to support and execute your organization’s compliance needs. 

Access the latest version of ARM in theCustomer Portal andsolarwinds.com. 

What’s New? 

Creation of Azure Active Directory guest accounts 

  • With ARM, accounts can now be created in AAD with external email addresses. This facilitates collaboration, e.g., with Teams and OneDrive, with external or freelance employees and companies. 

Recertification of Azure Active Directory (AAD) group memberships 

  • AAD group memberships can now be included in the recertification with the new version. Since many authorizations can be controlled through group memberships in AAD, e.g., team channels, this new feature significantly expands the scope of authorization reviews. 

Enhancement of Exchange Online configuration 

  • ARM can now access Exchange Online via a registered application (Application ID and Thumbprint). This new method of authentication (Modern Authentication) is currently recommended.  

Security in Hybrid Cloud Observability 

  • Security in Hybrid Cloud Observability helps organizations better understand the complexities within their environments while providing real-time visibility to help detect and remediate security issues. With the addition of Security Event Manager (SEM) and Access Rights Manager (ARM) into SolarWinds® Hybrid Cloud Observability, customers can now monitor their security and compliance status on a dedicated security dashboard. A correlated, node-based events dashboard from SEM and ARM in the appropriate Hybrid Cloud Observability node details page is also provided. Read more
