Identity Manager

I’ve been asked a few times about the purpose of various policysets; for what purpose do we have this one vs. that one? Why Event vs. Command, or Creation vs. Placement? There are reasons for all of them, and if followed properly life can be much simpler than if lumping everything under one policyset and…

One of the features IDM 4.5 documentation is missing are the instructions on how to add new locales to Home and Provisioning Dashboard (HPD) including the One SSO Provider (OSP) login page and the “old” UserApplication (UA) interface.
