IDM 7.2.0

Start a new project

When you extract the IDM .zip file, you have a default project under /path/to/openidm.

You can use this project to test customizations, but you should not run the default project in production.

Set up a new project as follows:

  1. Create a directory for your new project:

    mkdir /path/to/my-project
  2. Set up a minimal configuration:

    • If your project will be similar to any of the sample configurations, copy the contents of the sample to your new project.

      For example:

      cp -r /path/to/openidm/samples/sync-with-ldap/* /path/to/my-project/

      You can then customize the sample configuration according to your requirements.

    • If you do not want to start with one of the sample configurations, copy the conf/ and script/ directories from the default project to your new project directory:

      cp -pr /path/to/openidm/conf /path/to/my-project/
      cp -pr /path/to/openidm/script /path/to/my-project/

      You can then customize the default configuration according to your requirements.

  3. Start your new project as follows:

    /path/to/openidm/startup.sh -p /path/to/my-project
