ProcedureTo Create an Agent Profile in the OpenSSO Enterprise Console

  1. Login into the OpenSSO Enterprise Administration Console as amAdmin.

  2. Click Access Control, realm-name, Agents, and then J2EE.

  3. Under Agent, click New.

  4. In the Name field, enter the name for the new agent profile. For example: Tomcat6AgentProfile

  5. Enter and confirm the Password.

    Important: This password must be the same password that you enter in the agent profile password file that you specify when you run the agentadmin program to install the agent.

  6. In the Server URL field, enter the OpenSSO Enterprise server URL.

    For example:

  7. In the Agent URL field, enter the URL for the agent application ().

    The agentapp is a housekeeping application used by the agent for notifications and other functions such as cross domain single sign-on (CDSSO) support. For more information, see Deploying the Agent Application.

  8. Click Create.

  9. Click the link to the new agent profile.

    This step allows the agent to protect the manger and host-manager by default.

  11. Click Save.

    This change (com.sun.identity.agents.config.login.form property) is hot-swappable, so you do not need to restart the OpenSSO Enterprise web container for these values to take effect.

    Tip –

    Make a note of the values you specified for the agent profile, including the profile name, password, server URL, and agent URL. You will need these values when you install the Tomcat 6.0 version 3.0 agent using the agentadmin program.
