Installing SOAP Web Service

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

To install the SOAP Web Service

  1. Launch autorun.exe from the root directory of 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. On the start page of the Web Installer, select Install SOAP Web Service and click Next.
  4. On the Database connection page, enter the connection data for the One Identity Manager database and click Next.
  5. On the Select setup target page, configure the following settings and click Next.
    Table 203: 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 deactivated.

    If you use the DefaultAppPool default value, the application pool is defined using the following syntax:

    <application name>_POOL

    Identity

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

    If you use the DefaultAppPool default value, the user account is defined using the following syntax:

    IIS APPPOOL\<application name>_POOL

    If you want to authorize another user, click ... next to the text box, activate the option Custom account, and enter the username 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 performs a role-based login for the employee assigned to this user account. If single sign-on is not possible, the user is diverted to a login page. This authentication method can only be selected if Windows authentication is installed.

    • Anonymous

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

    Database authentication

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

    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 with the Windows user account under which its 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 Use IIS credentials for update if you want to use the user account that is running the application for updates.
    • Set Use other credentials for updates if you want to use another user account and enter the domain, user name, and password for the user.
  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 directory.

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