Resource—based authentication contains the following limitations:

ProcedureTo Configure Resource—based Authentication

Once both the Access Manager and a policy agent have been installed, resource—based authentication can be configured. To do this, it is necessary to point Access Manager to the Gateway servlet.

  1. Open can be found (in a Solaris environment) in /etc/opt//SUNWam/agents/config/ .

  2. Comment out the following line: = http://Access Manager_server_host.domain_name:port/amserver/UI/Login.

  3. Add the following line to the file: = http://AccessManager_host.domain_name:port/amserver/gateway

    Note –

    The gateway servlet is developed using the Policy Evaluation APIs and can be used to write a custom mechanism to accomplish resource-based authentication. See the Chapter 6, Using the Policy APIs, in Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Developer’s Guide in the Access Manager Developer's Guide.

  4. Restart the agent.
