Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Release Notes

Modifying SAML source ID in WAR deployment for Access Manager 7.1 Patch 1 (CR 6582972)

This issue will only occur when you already have a RTM version of Access Manager single web-application deployed and would now want to redeploy Access Manager patch 1 web-application. After you have successfully un-deployed the RTM version of Access Manager and redeployed the patch 1 version of Access Manager, follow the steps outlined under the "Workaround" section. If you are deploying Access Manager patch 1 web-application without any prior installation of Access Manager in your environment, then the outlined workaround is not required. Additionally, this workaround is applicable only when using SAML v.1.


  1. Extract the Access Manager 7.1 patch 1 ZIP file into a directory, for example am71_patch1_dir.

  2. Run the following command to generate the SAML source ID:

    java --classpath am71_patch1_dir/sdk/amclientsdk.jar com.sun.identity.saml.common.SAMLSiteID/server_protocol://server_host:server_port/server_deploy_uri

    A Base64 encoded SAML source ID is displayed. Keep this display open.

  3. Log into the Access Manager console as the top-level administrator.

  4. Go to Federation > SAML > Site Identifiers and click the Instance ID link for the server

  5. In the Site ID field, replace the old value (SAML_SITEID) with the source ID generated in the previous step and click Save when finished.

  6. Click Save again.
