WildFly 15.0.x (Supported from 14.2 CP5)
  • Oracle Java 8 (1.8.x)
  • AdoptOpenJDK 1.8.0_212 and later 1.8.x versions
  • Important!
    Identity Suite has shifted the primary support from Oracle JDK to AdoptOpenJDK, a popular free version of Java that derives its source from OpenJDK. Existing customers with valid licenses from Oracle may continue to run our products using Oracle JDK. However, in such cases, the customer is responsible for obtaining support from Oracle to address any future Java security and vulnerability issues that may arise.
  • CA Identity Manager installer does not work with AdoptOpenJDK. Post installation of CA Identity Manager, you must change the Java if you wish to use AdoptOpenJDK.
  • Unicast and Multicast are supported with JBoss
  • July 2015 Critical Patch Update or later is required for Oracle JDK/JRE 1.8.x
  • Unicast with Replication configuration is not supported for WildFly 8.2.x cluster due to a known bug with HornetQ in WildFly 8.2.x. For more information, search for the Knowledge Base article with the number HQ222116 at http://issues.jboss.org.
  • Domain mode is not supported
  • For cluster support, one computer per node is supported. Use default ports.Multi Node deployments require a true cluster (silo approach is not supported).

  • July 2015 Critical Patch Update or later is required for Oracle JDK/JRE 1.8.x

  • WebSphere 8.5.x supports only JSF/MyFaces 1.2
    (JSF/MyFaces 2 is not currently supported)
Starting from release 1.8.0_181, Java has enabled endpoint identification on LDAPS (secure LDAP over TLS) connections. This will result in the LDAP connection failure when the LDAP endpoint does not have a certificate matching the name of the endpoint. To avoid LDAP connection failure, apply the workaround mentioned at Java Upgrade LDAP Issue.
Supported Repositories
Supported Identity Manager User Store (Formerly called Corporate Directory)
The following list describes the platforms certified for maintaining user information as well as other organizational information (such as groups). Please note that other LDAP v3 servers and RDBMS are supported for this repository as long as they are verified as part of a CA Partner program. Also note that any LDAP server must be compliant to the X.521 object definition standards (see http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/recommendations/rec.aspx?rec=X.521).
