Configuring identity propagation for CICS Transaction Gateway
Identity propagation must be activated so that CICS® Transaction Gateway can flow distributed identities to CICS Transaction Server. Activation involves completing several installation and configuration tasks.
To activate identity propagation for CICS Transaction Gateway:
- Install a CICS Transaction Gateway ECI resource adapter in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server. For more information, see Deploying the CICS resource adapter for Java.
- Configure an IPIC server definition from CICS Transaction Gateway into a CICS server on the same sysplex. Alternatively you can configure an IPIC connection from a local Gateway directly into CICS, using SSL.
- Install the CICS Transaction Gateway identity propagation login module in IBM WebSphere Application Server. For more information, see Configuring identity propagation on IBM WebSphere Application Server.
- Configure the Java client application resource references, or the connection factories used by the applications, to use the CICS Transaction Gateway identity propagation login module. When applications have been enabled to use the module, identity propagation is active. For more information about configuring IBM WebSphere Application Server, see the IBM WebSphere Application Server documentation.
