Basic branding is included in the Physical ID module, by displaying the customer logotype in Identity Manager and Smart ID Self-Service.

Email templates

Nexus provides basic templates for the email notifications included in the common use cases, for example when a card has been activated or is about to expire.

During the implementation project, Nexus consultants or partners adapt the email templates for the customer needs. When the Physical ID module is up and running, email templates can be updated by Identity Manager administrators.

For more information, see Set up email template in Identity Manager.

The following email templates are included: 

  • Activate employee card
  • Deactivate employee card
  • Employee card expires
  • Employee card has been locked
  • Produce employee card
  • Send certificate reminder
  • Send P12 to employee

The following standard reports are included in the Smart ID solution: 

  • All employee cards
  • All external cards
  • All system users with connected roles
  • Locked cards with reason for locking
  • All active Personal Mobile users
  • All users that have Personal Mobile enabled but have not yet activated it

The reports are created using searches in Identity Manager. 

Language support

Supported languages are listed in IDM 23.10.3 - Requirements and interoperability.
