Deleting a policy association

To delete a policy association, you must be connected to the Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM) domain in which you want to work and you must have EIM access control for either Registry administrator or EIM administrator.

To delete a policy association, complete these steps:

  1. From IBM® Navigator for i, expand Security > Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM).
  2. Click Domain Management.
    • If you are not currently connected to the EIM domain controller, a Connect to EIM Domain Controller dialog box is displayed. Enter the connection information to use for the connection to the EIM domain controller. Click OK
  3. Right-click the EIM domain in which you want to work and select Mapping Policy.
  4. Select the appropriate page for the type of policy association that you want to delete.
  5. On that page, select the appropriate policy association and click Remove.
    Note: There is no confirmation prompt when you click Remove.
  6. Click OK to exit the Mapping Policy dialog and save your changes.
Note: When you remove a target policy association, any mapping lookup operations to the target registry that rely on the use of the deleted policy association may fail if other associations (either policy associations or identifier associations) do not exist for the affected target registry.

The only way to define a user identity to EIM is when you specify the user identity as part of creating an association, either an identifier association or a policy association. Consequently, when you delete the last target association for a user identity (whether by removing an individual target association or by removing a policy association), that user identity is no longer defined in EIM. Consequently, the user identity name and any lookup information for that user identity is lost.
