FAQ: Source code in IDM

Last updated Apr 8, 2021

The purpose of this FAQ is to provide answers to commonly asked questions regarding source code and binaries in IDM.


ForgeRock support covers the use of the official binary builds made available and downloaded from our customer portal: BackStage. We will support builds made from source provided no changes have been made to the core code of the product, the product was built from a tag that matches an official release, for example 6, and said product was built using the ForgeRock build scripts provided as part of the source. In the event that a customer experiences an issue with a ForgeRock product built from source where ForgeRock believe the issue is as a result of the build process, ForgeRock reserves the right to ask the customer to attempt to reproduce the issue on an official ForgeRock binary build. Customers who are running custom builds or who need further clarification should contact their ForgeRock sales representative.
