Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo Migrate Existing Identity Manager Users

  1. In the Administrator interface, click Server Tasks on the menu.

    The Find Tasks page opens.

  2. Click Run Tasks in the secondary menu.

  3. Click SPE Migration.

  4. Enter a unique Task Name.

  5. Select a Resource from the list.

    This is a resource in Identity Manager that represents the Service Provider directory server. Links to this resource found in Identity Manager users are not migrated.

  6. Enter an Identity Attribute.

    This is the Identity Manager user attribute that contains the short unique identity for the directory user.

  7. Select an Identity Rule from the list.

    This is an optional rule that may calculate the name of the directory user from attributes of the Identity Manager user. The Identity rule can calculate a simple name (typically UID) which is then processed through the identity template of the Resource to form the directory server distinguished Name (DN.) The rule may also return a full specified DN which avoids the id template.

  8. Click Launch to start the background migration task.
