The following features are new in Juniper Identity Management Service Release 1.2:
Support remote system syslog messages—Starting in JIMS Release 1.2, we support the ability to receive remote system log (also called syslog) event and user information data from an event source such as a DHCP server. You define the IP address and port of the remote syslog server that the JIMS server permits a connect from the remote server and configure the JIMS server on how to process the syslog messages received. The JIMS server receives and processes data from syslog messages and transmits this information to each SRX Series device to use in making policy decisions in the user firewall. UDP 514 and TCP 514 are the default ports to support the syslog server.
IPv6 support—Starting in JIMS 1.2 Release, we support IPv6 connectivity between the JIMS server and the SRX Series devices running with Junos OS Release 18.3R1 and later. By default, the JIMS server listens for IPv4 incoming IP addresses from the SRX Series devices on the specified port. You can click the Advanced button to configure IPv6 or IPv6 and IPv4 (dual-stack) connections between the JIMS server and the SRX Series device.
With JIMS server running JIMS 1.2 Release and SRX Series devices running Junos OS Release 18.3R1 and later, you can apply IPv6 address filters in addition to IPv4 address filters for the SRX Series devices in your network.
Support import and export JIMS server configuration—Starting in JIMS Release 1.2, we support backing up or exporting an existing JIMS server configuration. Exporting allows you to import (clone) the configuration onto another JIMS server (passwords will need to be re-entered), while backing it up allows you to import (restore) it to the same JIMS server from which it is created to recover the configuration (passwords are preserved in encrypted form).

Support domain alias—Starting in JIMS Release 1.2, you can create an alias for the JIMS Active Directory domain names. Domain aliases enable you to assign different domain names to your primary domain name. JIMS creates a domain object for each Active Directory forest that it connects. The domain object maintains a list of outstanding devices and users. JIMS maps the domain names to the domain object by mapping the long name (juniper.net) and the short name (juniper) to reference the same domain object to support Active Directory configuration. This permits events received domains that are not explicitly connected to user directory accounts such as a DNS alias to match a real user in a particular directory source.
