Install the HPE Identity Manager (IdM) service

The IdM service is used to set up IdM authentication in Service Manager when configuring SAML Single Sign-On (SAML SSO).

The IdM service is released with Service Manager in two modes:

  • Standalone mode (as a standalone WAR archive)
  • Built-in mode (as a microservice included in the Service Portal installation)

If your organization is using Service Portal, use the Service Portal IdM to configure SAML SSO. In this case, you do not need to install the IdM service.

If your organization is not using Service Portal, deploy the standalone IdM service WAR archive on Tomcat and then configure SAML SSO. For instructions on how to install and configure the IdM service, see Install and configure the standalone IdM service.
