If you are looking more for features for users, then you can find them here in our Features for Users

# Features for administrators

Features Supported Notes
Healthcheck Yes An API endpoint to monitor the health of your installation, including DB connectivity, time sync and various other
Prevent old passwords Yes Old passwords can be blocked without compromises for the "never send the password to the server"
Restrict 2FA methods Yes If administrators only want to allow particular 2FA methods, then they can restrict them.
Search by email address Yes By default the server does not allow to search users by their email address, but in a corporate environment administrators can enable this.
Search by partial usernames Yes By default the server does not allow to search users by parts of their username, but in a corporate environment administrators can enable this.
Admin dashboard Yes Psono offers with the "Admin Client" a nice web based dashboard to manage users and their accounts.
Console commands Yes Allows to automated processes like user generation or promotion of users with scripts.
Broad OS support Yes Psono can run on any system that can provide a docker environment, e.g. AWS, Azure, GCE, Mac, Windows, Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, RHEL, SUSE, Oracle Linux
Vertical scalability Yes Psono architecture allows vertical scalability and is only limited by the amount of write operations a single Postgres can handle (which is alot with the right hardware).
High availability Yes Psono architecture allows a full redundant setup for secrets and filestorage.
Site affine filestorage Yes Allowing setups with dedicated storage for remote offices, or "external" users.
Multiple storage backends Yes The fileserver supports various storage provider (local storage, Google Cloud Storage, AWS, Azure, ...) for client side encrypted files
Central security reports Yes Central security reports you to audit the passwords of your users, check if they have been breached and if they follow password policies with length or complexity requirements without access to the actual passwords.

* LDAP comes with some requirements, e.g. that the server needs to be able to provide the users plaintext password to the LDAP server or that the server needs a way to re-encrypt the users secrets when the user is changing his password on the LDAP server. Using this feature therefore necessarily will tell the client to send the plaintext password. (A warning is displayed to the user before that happens, to prevent any misuse of that feature.) and the server will store the users secrets (not his password) encrypted in the database to be able to re-encrypt them if necessary.

** SAML comes with some requirements, e.g. that the server needs a way to to access the users secrets in order to be able to provide the client with a random "fake password" that it then can use to decrypt the normal secrets.
