IV Installing Identity Reporting

This section guides you through the process of installing the required components for running reports. The installation process includes all components required for the application:

  • NetIQ Identity Reporting

  • Identity Manager Driver for Managed System Gateway (MSGW driver)

  • Identity Manager Driver for Data Collection Services (DCS driver)

The installation files are located in the \products\Reporting directory within the .iso image file for the Identity Manager installation package. By default, the installation program installs the components in C:\NetIQ\idm\apps\IDMReporting.

For your convenience, the Identity Manager installation kit includes Sentinel Log Management for IGA (Sentinel) to use as a built-in auditing service. For more information, see Installing Sentinel Log Management for Identity Governance and Administration in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide for Linux.

NetIQ recommends that you review the installation process before beginning. For more information, see Section 12.0, Planning to Install Identity Reporting.

WARNING:Identity Reporting is used by both Identity Manager and Identity Governance. You must always rely on Identity Manager patch channel to update Identity Reporting for Identity Manager. Otherwise, conflicts will arise during regular Identity Manager patch updates.
