Selecting and Editing a Web Application

To select a web application

  1. Select Web applications | Select web application.

    This displays a list of existing web applications.

  1. Select the web application of your choice from the list.

    The selected web application is loaded and display under Manage your web portal environment on the start page.

To edit web application settings

NOTE: A web application must be selected.

  1. Click Edit web application settings.

    This opens the dialog box Edit web application settings.

    Note: The URL text field shows you the address where the web application can be found. This value cannot be edited and serves as a key for the matching set in the database.

    Note: The project you selected in "Web project" must be stored in the database. Otherwise, you cannot select it. Ensure that you have saved the web project.

    The selected web shown in the menu.

  3. Select the module the web application user will use for authentication in future in Authentication module.
  4. Select a module in Try single sign-on, use the following module if single sign-on fails:.

    If the module selected under Authentication module supports Single sign-on, you have the option to enter an alternative authentication method. This is used as a fall-back if single sign-on fails for any reason. For more detailed information on authentication modules, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

  5. Click Debugging.

    The debugging environment is enabled and you can use it. For more information, see Debugging.

    Note: Test your web application with this setting before you generate a web project compilation via Release.

To edit web application settings with an OAuth authentication module

Note: If you use OAuth authentication, you can enter an ID in the text field provided. This automatically identifies the web application. This authentication ID is assigned in the OAuth system and must be added to the configuration in Web Designer. If you do not use OAuth authentication, ignore this text field.

  1. Follow the steps 1 to 3 described in the step-by-step To edit web application settings.
  2. Select one of the following modules in Authentication module
    1. OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect
    2. OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect (role-based)

    Enter values for your web application in the OAuth section of the Edit web application settings dialog box. These fields are normally preset with values from global configuration parameters.

    The following values can be entered.

    Table 1: Values for Using an Authentication Module
    Values Description
    Client ID for OAuth authentication

    If this is empty, the value from "QER\Person\OAuthenticator\ClientID\Web" is used.

    For example, "urn:IdentityManager/Web".

    Thumb print for the OAuth certificate

    This is used to find the certificate in the certificate store. Either the thumb nail or the issuer of the certificate is required.

    For example, "7612FF79D99FCC56BEDDOC758412025B284DC327".

    Issuer information for the OAuth certificate

    This is used to find the certificate in the certificate store. Either the thumb nail or the issuer of the certificate is required.

    For example, "O=[company name], OU=[organizational unit], CN=[server IP]".

    Resource

    Is only required if the OAuth service needs this value.

    The value entered here is passed as a URL parameter "Resource" to the OAuth server.

    Certificate endpoint

    Supplies the URL from which to download the certificate. The certificate's thumb print or issuer information is required for validating the downloaded certificate.

    For exmaple, "https://certificateServer/certificate.crt".
