PoolParty 2022 Release 1: With an Eye for Security, Scalability, and Speed

“We have rehauled the PoolParty authentication service and integrated Keycloak, a Swiss army knife of digital identity and access management. This integration brings you multiple features aimed at strengthening user account security and scalable user management that works for small projects as well as large knowledge graph initiatives.”
Next, check out our new developer blogs! Our team of developers worked extensively on this release, putting hours of research, planning, and programming into the features – without them, this release would be impossible. We decided to interview 3 of our developers to get their thoughts firsthand.

As a result of our strategic partnership with Oxford Semantic Technologies, PoolParty now has an integration with RDFox  – a high performance semantic reasoning engine. Now with the graph database integrated well within PoolParty, customers can build a better foundation for semantic search and recommender systems. We’ve written a blog together with Oxford Semantic Technologies to show you what’s in store for you.

LDAP Integration

In a second iteration of PoolParty 2022, our developers also implemented LDAP support for authentication management. LDAP refers to Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, which helps users find data by storing it in a central directory.

The integration with Keycloack and LDAP allows organizations to manage their users centrally and sync it with PoolParty, reducing the overhead of managing users separately in PoolParty. The implementation is flexible and allows the management of pure authentication (enable users to log-in to PoolParty) to also controlling authorization (user roles and groups) in LDAP.
