For each release of AM, you can download the entire package as a .zip file, only the AM .war file, or only the administrative tools as a .zip archive. The Archives only have the AM source code used to build the release.

After you download the .zip file, create a new directory for AM, and unzip the .zip file to access the content.

$ cd ~/Downloads
$ mkdir openam && cd openam
$ unzip ~/Downloads/

When you unzip the archive of the entire package, you get ldif, license, and legal directories in addition to the following files:

Distribution Files
File Description


The distribution .war file includes the core server code with an embedded DS server. The distribution includes an administrative graphical user interface (GUI) Web console.

During installation, the .war file accesses properties to obtain the fully qualified domain name, port, context path, and the location of the configuration folder. These properties can be obtained from the boot.json file in the AM installation directory, from environment variables, or from a combination of the two. This file is also available to download individually.


AM provides a utility with some cryptographic functionality used for creating Docker images.

This utility is strictly for future use, and is not currently supported.


AM provides a SOAP-based security token service (STS) server that issues tokens based on the WS-Security protocol.(1)

AM provides an ssoadm command-line tool that allows administrators to configure and maintain AM as well as create their own configuration scripts.

The zip distribution file contains binaries, properties file, script templates, and setup scripts for UNIX and Windows servers.

AM provides configuration and upgrade tools for installing and maintaining your server.

The zip distribution file contains libraries, legal notices, and supported binaries for these configuration tools. Also, you can view example configuration and upgrade properties files that can be used as a template for your deployments.

AM provides a configuration file upgrade tool.

For more information on converting configuration files for import into AM, see the file in the file.

The file contains the sample trees in JSON files,\ ready for import by Amster command-line interface. For information on importing files by using Amster, see Importing Configuration Data in the Amster 7.5.0 User Guide.

AM provides a utility to help with creating a trust store for use with web authentication.
