Sun Identity Manager Deployment Reference

Anonymous User Menu Form

Anonymous User Menu Form controls the display of the main menu in the Identity Manager User interface when an unknown user logs in.

Identity Manager uses the anonymous end user pages for users who are not defined in the system through the process of user self-provisioning. For example, an Identity Manager administrator can set up pass-through authentication for an Active Directory resource. As a result, any person who has an Active Directory account can log in to the Identity Manager User interface. You can customize those pages so that when a user who does not have a Identity Manager account logs in, an Identity Manager user object is created and the Active Directory resource is added. Subsequently, through a series of questions, the system can set up the user’s role, organization, and other resources.

You can customize Anonymous User Menu Form to launch workflow processes to request services before an Identity Manager user exists.
