More About Configuring Policy Agent 3.0

Michael blogged about Policy Agent 3.0 property configuration in the following entry:

Policy Agent Configuration with Agent 99

I have a few things I can share in this area:

This is all relatively new stuff; some stuff I mention is yet to be finalized. So um, uh, set your expectations accordingly.

Image of the Policy Agent 3.0 Local and Centralized Configuration Options

Since I just happened to take a snapshot of the Federated Access Manager (FAM) Console of the creation of an agent profile, I thought I'd share the image:

Agent Profile

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. 

FAM Command-Line Interface (CLI) Examples

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

Example 1: Below is an example of how to use the CLI to change the Agent Locale.

./famadm update-agent -e testRealm1 -b testAgent1 -u amadmin -f /tmp/testpwd -a "com.sun.identity.agents.config.locale=en_US"

Example 2: Below is an example of how to use the CLI to change the FAM Login URL

./famadm update-agent -e testRealm1 -b testAgent1 -u amadmin -f /tmp/testpwd -a "com.sun.identity.agents.config.login.url=
http://amHost.example.com:8080/opensso/UI/Login"

Policy Agent 3.0 Properties: Labels, Names, and Double Secret Other Stuff

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:

http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenSSO/agent3properties 

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.

The End

P.S. While I am a big fan of Get Smart, I have nothing to say about Agent 99 at this time. Sorry about that Chief.
