Building and Installing

This section explains how to build and install authentication nodes for use in authentication trees.

To Build and Install Custom Authentication Nodes
  1. Change to the root directory of the Maven project of the custom nodes. For example:

    $ cd /Users/Forgerock/Repositories/am-external/openam-auth-trees/auth-nodes
  2. Run the mvn clean package command.

    The project will generate a .jar file containing your custom nodes. For example, auth-nodes-7.0.2.jar.

  3. Copy the .jar file to the WEB-INF/lib/ folder where AM is deployed:

    $ cp auth-nodes-7.0.2.jar /path/to/tomcat/webapps/openam/WEB-INF/lib/


    Delete or overwrite older versions of the nodes .jar file from the WEB-INF/lib/ folder, to avoid clashes.

  4. Restart AM for the new nodes to become available.

    The custom authentication node is now available in the tree designer to add to authentication trees:

    Custom Node within a Tree
    A custom authentication node being used in a new tree.

    For more information on using the tree designer to manage authentication trees, see "Configuring Authentication Trees".

For information on upgrading custom nodes, see "Upgrading Nodes and Configuration Changes".
