One Identity Manager Service Configuration Files

One Identity Manager Service Configuration Files

Configuration One Identity Manager Service and its plug-ins with a configuration file. The file has to reside in the same directory as the file viNetworkService. The configuration file is necessary both for One Identity Manager Service on a windows based operating system and for the Linux daemon.

Two configuration file formats are supported:

  • Jobservice.cfg

    Jobservice.cfg is an XML configuration file in our own format. The advantage of this file is that run-time loading is supported.

  • viNetworkService.exe.config

    The viNetworkService.exe.config file is the default configuration file for .NET exes and has the specified format.

The system initially searches for the parameter in the configuration file Jobservice.cfg in order to determine the setups. If the parameter is not found, the file viNetwordService.exe is automatically used. Thus the One Identity Manager Service can only work with the configuration file viNetworkService.exe.config.

Edit the One Identity Manager Service configuration in the category Base Data | Installation | Job server in the Designer or with the program "Job Service Configuration".

There is one unique section in the file for each of the different modules in One Identity Manager Service.

Table 200: One Identity Manager Service Modules
Module Description
Process collection Specify the Job provider in this module.
JobDestination Specify Job destinations in this module.
Configuration Standard configuration settings for One Identity Manager Service are in this module.
LogWriter

This module writes One Identity Manager Service messages to a log file.

Dispatcher Use this module to configure the One Identity Manager Service as a dispatcher. The process requests from the child Job server are buffered, processed and forwarded.
Connection With this module you can set special configuration settings for the behavior of the One Identity Manager Service.
HTTP authentication module Use this module to specify how authentication works on an HTTP server so that extended services can be accessed, for example, displaying the log file or the status display.
Plugins

Specify which plugins should be installed in this module.

File with the private key.

In this module, you provide the data for files with a private key. Use this module if you are working with more than one private key.

Detailed information about this topic

Process Collection Module

In this module you define the Job providers. The Job provider supplies a Job destination process step and evaluates the result. The following module types may be selected:

You can configure any number of Job providers in one configuration file. The associated configuration sections are determined by name. Therefore, you should rename Job providers that are added.
