35.1 Preparing eDirectory for Single Sign-on Access

You must configure the Identity Vault, as part of your eDirectory installation, to support single sign-on access for the identity applications and Identity Reporting.

The eDirectory Administrator should create value indexes for the manager, ismanager and srvprvUUID attributes. Without value indexes on these attributes, identity applications users can experience impeded performance, particularly in a clustered environment. You can create these value indexes automatically during installation by selecting Advanced > Create eDirectory Indexes in the RBPM Configuration utility. For more information about using Index Manager to create value indexes, see the NetIQ eDirectory Administration Guide.

If you previously extended the eDirectory schema to include the SAML schema and installed the required NMAS methods, you do not need to perform those steps a second time. Instead, skip to the subsection about creating the Trusted Root Container.
