An agent authenticator is a type of agent that, once it is authenticated, can obtain the read-only data of agent profiles that are selected for the agent authenticator to read. The agent profiles can be of any type (J2EE, WSP, Discovery, and so forth), but must exist in the same realm. Users that have the agent authenticator's credentials (username and password) can read the agent profile data, but do not have the create, update, or delete permissions of the Agent Admin.
The agent Authenticator contains the following attributes:
The password was set when you created the agent authenticator profile. However, you can change the password at any time in the future.
The confirmation of the password was performed when you created the agent authenticator profile. If you change the password, you must confirm the change.
The Active option is selected when the agent authenticator is created. Choose Inactive only if you want to remove the protection the agent provides.
This attribute defines a list of OpenSSO Enterprise agents whose profile data is read by the agent authenticator. The agents can be of any type (J2EE, WSP, Discovery, and so forth), but must exist in the same realm. To add an agent to the list, select the agent name and click Add.
