The purpose of this article is to provide compatibility information between AM/OpenAM and IDM/OpenIDM versions. This includes the supported Java® versions for each combination.


The following matrix indicates compatibility between IDM/OpenIDM and AM/OpenAM for integration purposes:

It is strongly recommended that you always upgrade to the latest maintenance releases for whichever versions of IDM/OpenIDM and AM/OpenAM you have deployed.

The authentication modules available for integration vary according to product versions as follows:

  IDM 6.x IDM 5.5.x IDM 5 OpenIDM 4.x

* The OPENAM_SESSION authentication module is deprecated in IDM 5.5. You should use the OAUTH_CLIENT module instead for integrating IDM with AM.
