Identity Manager
Environments
A
Identity Manager
environment is a view of a user store. In a
Identity Manager
environment, you can manage users, groups, organizations, tasks, and roles. You can also give users accounts in managed endpoints, such as email accounts or other applications.
Using the Management Console, you can do the following tasks:
  • Create, modify, or delete a
    Identity Manager
    environment.
  • Export and import a
    Identity Manager
    environment.
  • Configure advanced settings
  • Import roles and tasks
  • Reset the System Manager account
Prerequisites to Creating a
Identity Manager
Environment
Before you begin, use the worksheet in the following table to collect the information that you need:
Identity Manager
Environment Configuration Worksheet
Required Information
Value
A meaningful
Identity Manager
environment name that you choose.
For example: MyEnvironment
A base URL which
Identity Manager
uses to form the Redirect URL for the default password policy for the environment.
For example:
http://server.yourcompany.org
An alias that is added to the URL for accessing protected tasks in the environment.
For example:
http://server.yourcompany.org/iam/im/alias
An alias that is added to the URL for accessing public tasks, such as self-registration and forgotten password tasks.
For example:
http://server.yourcompany.org/iam/im/public_alias/index.jsp?task.tag=SelfRegistration
Note:
When your environment does not include public tasks, you do not need to specify a public alias.
If you supplied a public alias, the name of an existing user who serves as the public user.
Identity Manager
uses credentials of the public user in place of user-supplied credentials when accessing public tasks.
The name of the provisioning directory, when the
Identity Manager
environment supports provisioning.
The unique identifier for an existing user who administers the
Identity Manager
environment.
For example: myadmin
The name of the SiteMinder agent or agent group that protects the
Identity Manager
environment if
Identity Manager
integrates with SiteMinder.
