2.1 Understanding Shims

The Remote Loader uses shims to communicate with the application on a managed system. A shim is the file or files that contain the code to process the events that are synchronizing between the Identity Vault and the application. Before using the Remote Loader, you must configure the application shim to connect securely with the Identity Manager engine. You must also configure both the Remote Loader and the Identity Manager drivers. For more information, see “Configuring the Remote Loader and Drivers,”.
