Configure Connectors


Connectors continue to be released outside the IDM release. For the latest documentation, refer to the ICF documentation.

You configure connectors through the ICF provisioner service, and access them over REST at the openidm/conf endpoint.

Connector configurations are stored in files in your project's conf/ directory, and are named project-dir/conf/provisioner.openicf-name where name corresponds to the name of the connector. If you are creating your own connector configuration files, do not include additional dash characters ( - ) in the connector name, as this can cause problems with the OSGi parser. For example, the name provisioner.openicf-hrdb.json is fine. The name provisioner.openicf-hr-db.json is not.

You can create a connector configuration in the following ways:

  • Start with the sample provisioner files in the /path/to/openidm/samples/example-configurations/provisioners directory. For more information, see "Sample Provisioner Files".

  • Configure connectors in the Admin UI. Log in to the Admin UI at https://localhost:8443/admin, then continue with the process described in "Configure Connectors With the Admin UI".

  • Use the service that IDM exposes through the REST interface to create basic connector configuration files. For more information, see "Configure Connectors Over REST".

  • Use the or cli.bat scripts to generate a basic connector configuration. For more information, see "configureconnector".
