Adapter Features and Purpose

 

The SDI Based Documentum Adapter is designed to create and manage accounts on Documentum Content Server. The adapter runs in 'agentless' mode and communicates using the DFC JAVA API to the systems being managed.

 

Identity Manager adapters are powerful tools that require administrator level authority. Adapters operate much like a human system administrator, creating accounts, permissions and home directories. Operations requested from Identity Manager server will fail if the adapter is not given sufficient authority to perform the requested task. IBM recommends that this adapter run with administrative (root) permissions.

 

Service Groups Management

 

Managing service groups implies the following:

 

Create service groups on the managed resource.

Modify attribute of a service group.

Delete a service group.

 

 

The SDI Based Documentum adapter does not support management of service groups.

License Agreement

Review and agree to the terms of the IBM Security Identity Adapter License prior to using this product. The license can be viewed from the "license" folder included in the product package.
