Installing the SOAP Web Service

Installing the SOAP Web Service

IMPORTANT: Start the SOAP Web Service installation locally on the server.

To install the SOAP Web Service

  1. Execute the program autorun.exe from the root directory on the One Identity Manager installation medium.
  2. Go to the Installation tab and select the entry Web based components and click Install. Starts the Web Installer.
  3. Select Install Web Installer on the SOAP Web Service start page and click Next.
  4. Enter connection credential for the One Identity Manager database on the Database connection page and click Next.
  5. Configure the following settings on the Select setup target page and click Next.
    Table 336: Settings for the Installation Target
    Setting Description
    Application name Name used as application name, as in the title bar of the browser, for example.
    Target in IIS Internet Information Services web page on which to install the application.
    Enforce SSL Specifies whether insecure websites are available for installation. If the option is set, only sites secured by SSL can be used for installing. This setting is the default value. If this option is not set, insecure websites can be used for installing.

    URL

    The application's Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

    Install dedicated application pool

    Specifies whether an application pool is installed for each application. This allows applications to be set up independently of one another. If this option is set, each application is installed in its own application pool.

    Application pool

    The application pool to use. This can only be entered if the option Install dedicated application pool is not set.

    The application pool is formatted with the following syntax, if the default value "DefaultAppPool" is used.

    <application name>_POOL

    Identity

    Permissions for executing an application pool. A default identity or a user defined user account can be used.

    The user account is formatted with the following syntax, if the default value "ApplicationPoolIdentity" is used.

    IIS APPPOOL\<application name>_POOL

    If you want to authorize another user, click ... next to the text box and enter the user and password.

    Web Authentication

    Specifies the type for authentication against the web application. You have the following options:

    • Windows Authentication (Single Sign-On)

      The user is authenticated against the Internet Information Services using their Windows user account and the web application logs in the employee assigned to the user account as role-based. If single sign-on is not possible, the user is diverted to a login page. You can only select this authentication method is Windows authentication is installed.

    • Anonymous

      Login is possible without Windows authentication. The user is authenticated against the Internet Information Services and the web application anonymously and the web application is directed to a login page.

    Database authentication

    NOTE: You can only see this section if you have selected an SQL database connection in Database connection.

    Specifies the type for authentication against the One Identity Manager database. You have the following options:

    • Windows authentication

      The web application is authenticated against the One Identity Manager database using the Windows account under which your application pool is running. Login is possible with a user defined user account or a default identity for the application pool.

    • SQL Authentication

      Login is only possible through a user defined user accounts. Authentication is done using user name and password. This access data is saved in the web application configuration as computer specific encrypted.

  6. Specify the user account for automatic updating of the application server on the Set update credentials page.

    The user account is used to add or replace files in the application directory.

    • Set the option Use IIS credentials for update if you want to use the user account, under which the application is run, for updates.
    • Set the option Use other credentials for updates if you want to use another user account and enter the domain, user name and password for the user.

    NOTE: The following permissions are required for automatic updating:

    • The user account for updating required write permissions for the application directory.
    • The user account for updating requires the local security policy "Log on as a batch job".
    • The user account, under which the application pool runs, requires the local security policies "Replace a process level token" and "Adjust memory quotas for a process".
  7. Installation progress is displayed on the Setup is running page. Once installation is complete, click Next.

    The Web Installer generates the web application and the corresponding configuration files (web.config) for each folder.

  8. Click Finish on the last page to end the program.
