Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Web Services

Understanding Targets

A target is a logical end point in the server. Every target is named and declares the schema of the objects that it manages. Targets also declare which capabilities (a set of requests) are supported. See Understanding PSOs for more information.

Currently, Identity Manager supports only one target. You cannot declare multiple targets. You can name this target anything you want, but the data objects’ format must conform to the DSML profile.

A supported target is the one target defined in the spml2.xml file (Configuration:SPML2 object). For example, in ListTargetsRequest Examples, ListTargetResponse returns one target, spml2-DSML-Target.
