This often causes challenges in identity projects where one must synchronise identity data (names, locations) from a diversity of different…

With Identity Manager 4.5 the way the User Application is configured changed a great deal. Previously, the configupdate.sh tool would do a fair bit of work, unpacking the IDMProv.war file, which is really just a very large ZIP file, changing some of the internal configuration files, and then repack it.

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Getting Started with OSP
