40.0 Verifying Single Sign-on Access for the Identity Applications

After you install the identity applications and configure the settings for single sign-on, you should verify that you can log in to the individual applications and switch among them without logging out. By default, the applications use the following suffix in the URL link:

  • Identity Manager Administration: /idmadmin

  • Identity Manager Dashboard: /idmdash

  • Identity Reporting: /IDMRPT

To customize the suffix, use the Configupdate utility. For more information, see Configuring the Settings for the Identity Applications in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide for Linux or Configuring the Settings for the Identity Applications in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide for Windows.

To verify single sign-on functionality:

  1. In a new browser window on your identity applications server, enter the URL for the Dashboard:

    https://server:port/idmdash

    Do not log in to the Dashboard.

  2. In your browser, navigate to the User Application:

    https://server:port/IDM-context
  3. Verify that the User Application displays the same login page as shown in Step 1.

  4. Log in to the User Application.

  5. In the top right corner, click the Home icon and verify that you can access the Dashboard without logging on again.
