By clicking the server name next to the URL, you can get information about the certificate. You can select a certificate required for logging in, under Pin server certificate.
    • If the certificate's server name does not match the application server's URL or, if the server certificate cannot be successfully verified, the server name is displayed in red next the URL. You decide whether to trust the certificate.
    • If a client certificate is expected according to the SSL settings, select the certificate under Select client certificate and specify how the certificate is to be verified. You have the following options: Find by subject name, Find by issuer name and Find by thumbprint.
    • If you want to use a self-signed certificate, enable the Accept self-signed certificate option.

Logging in to the One Identity Manager tools using a system ID

Following the database login, the user must log in to the program as a system user. Permitted system user IDs are determined by the authentication module you select.

NOTE:

  • After the initial schema installation, only the System user and ComponentAuthenticator authentication modules and the role-based authentication modules are enabled in One Identity Manager.

  • The One Identity Manager tools can only be started if the user has the relevant program function permissions.

  • Use non role-based authentication modules to log in to the Designer. Role-based authentication modules for logging in to the Designer are not supported.

To log in to One Identity Manager tools with a system user identifier

  1. Select the authentication module under Authentication method in the connection dialog.

    This displays a list of all available authentication modules.

  2. Enter the login data for the system user ID.

    Which login data you require depends on the authentication module selected.

  3. Click Connect.

    The connection data is saved and made available for the next login.

Language settings in One Identity Manager

The default One Identity Manager installation is supplied in the English - United States [en-US] and German - Germany [de-DE] language. You can add other languages to the user interface and display text if required. In this instance, you must translate the text before One Identity Manager goes live. There is a Language Editor in the Designer to help you do this. A special control is provided in the One Identity Manager tools that aids multi-language input.

One Identity Manager default language

Maintenance of default data takes place in the default language. The default language for an installation of One Identity Manager is English - United States [en-US]. The default language is valid across the system. It is not recommended to change the default language during working hours.

In the ideal case, the One Identity Manager language matches the user’s administration tool login language. If these two settings are different, then the default language is used if no captions are found in the requested login language for a set of language-dependent data.

User login language

The language used in the user interface is the same as the language used when logging in to the administration tools. When you log in for the first time, the system language is used for displaying the user interface. Users can change their login language in the program settings in all administration tools. This sets the language globally for all the user’s tools. Therefore, the user does not have to set the login language in every tool separately. Changes to the login language take effect after the tool is restarted.

Any language for which the Select in front-end option is activated can be used as a login language.
