Notes
WildFly
8.2.1
  • Oracle JDK 1.8.x
  • AdoptOpenJDK 1.8.0_212 and later 1.8.x versions
All
  • Only Standalone server is supported (JBoss Native Cluster is not supported)
JBoss
EAP 6.4.0 (GA)
  • Oracle JDK 1.8.x
  • AdoptOpenJDK 1.8.0_212 and later 1.8.x versions
All
  • Only Standalone server is supported (JBoss Native Cluster is not supported)
WebLogic
12c R2 (12.2.1.x)
Oracle JDK 1.8.x
WebLogic
  • Only Native WebLogic Cluster configuration is supported (Single node cluster or more)
  • 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.
  • Identity Portal installer does not work with AdoptOpenJDK. Post installation of Identity Portal, you must change the Java if you wish to use AdoptOpenJDK.
  • Only 64-bit application servers are supported.
  • Only 64-bit Java
    JDKs
    are supported. JREs are not supported (Identity Portal includes runtime compile elements).
Databases
Identity Portal supports the following databases that are used for its run-time and persistent stores.

ALL TCP Ports
  • HTTP and RMI Traffic must be allowed
  • The communications between Identity Portal and the Identity Manager server must be direct. Reverse proxies or other Layer 7 HTTP relays are not supported. Network Load Balancers are supported.

Default Port (9742)
Port is configurable
Note:
In case Identity Manager or Identity Governance is deployed in a cluster, an NLB (Network Load Balancer) VIP is required for Identity Portal to use all Identity Manager or Identity Governance cluster nodes. Identity Portal is configured to point to the VIP (Virtual IP) representing the Identity Portal, Identity Governance clusters. NLB VIP characteristics are as follows:
  • Relay: all TCP ports
  • Load Balancing Scheme: Round Robin (No ip-stickiness)
  • Health Monitor: Basic HTTP on the Identity Manager or Identity Governance application server HTTP port (for example, 8080 on JBoss)
DNS Requirements
The Identity Manager application server FQDNs should be resolvable from all the Identity Portal application server nodes. Resolution should be performed either through DNS or a local hosts file override.
Mobile Support
  1. Chrome or Safari on iOS version 10 and above
  2. Chrome on Android 7 and above
