sk123858 Identity Collector support on SMB Appliances states that there is no Identity Collector support for SMB appliances. While this limitation is true with locally managed SMBs, a GAiA GW connected to Identity Collector can share that information with centrally managed SMBs. I asked for confirmation in a feedback to sk123858:
Q: As SMB GWs support Identity Sharing, is Identity Collector supported when connected to main (non-SMB) GW only and Identity Sharing between main GW and SMB is active ?
A: Identity sharing is supported in Centrally managed mode only. The SMB gateway is “agnostic” regarding the means of achieving identities used by the peer gateway, so it should work.
