Most user information is stored in the Identity Vault. However, the identity applications rely on a separate database to store the following information:
Configuration data for the identity applications, such as Web page definitions and preference values
State of a workflow
NOTE:The actual workflow definitions are stored in the Identity Applications driver in the Identity Vault.
For more information about installing and configuring database, see Installing and Configuring Identity Manager Components in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide for Linux or Understanding the Installation and Configuration Process for Identity Manager Server, Identity Applications, and Identity Reporting Components in the NetIQ Identity Manager Setup Guide for Windows.
