More About Configuring Policy Agent 3.0
By Identity Writer: J Domenichini on May 04, 2008
Michael blogged about Policy Agent 3.0 property configuration in the following entry:
I have a few things I can share in this area:
- Image of the Policy Agent 3.0 Local and Centralized Configuration Options
- FAM Command-Line Interface (CLI) Examples
- Policy Agent 3.0 Properties: Labels, Names, and Double Secret Other Stuff
Looking at the image above, you can see that you have the option while creating the profile to set the configuration to local or centralized.
There's a lot you can do with the CLI to configure agents. Here, I'm just focusing on configuring the agent properties. By the way, to create the agent, the command starts as follows:famadm create-agent. However, The examples below are for updating an agent after it's created.
Updated 05/05/08 - I found that the examples that were here yesterday were inaccurate. The new examples below should be correct. I'll add an entry about using the command line to configure agents. There's already some good info on it here: http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenSSO/famadmAgents
Policy Agent developer Sean Brydon said to me, "Why don't you put together a wiki page that lists all the 3.0 agent properties so people can add details whenever they want?" I'm putting that sentence in quotes as if that's what he said word for word. And though I don't remember what he actually said, I think it's safe to say that that's not exactly what he said. I'm just seeing if he's going to sue me for misquoting him. So, I'm testing just how "open" this OpenSSO thing is.
Anyway, whatever he actually said, he must have been pretty convincing because I've been working on that wiki page. Do you want to see it? Well, even if you don't, here's the link:
I'll keep working on it. I don't know when you'll look at it, if at all (I mean, after all, I don't even know who you are) but if it's around early May, 2008, there's probably lots that can still be done.
