Before you install the VMware Identity Manager connector, log in to your VMware Identity Manager tenant administration console as the local administrator and generate an activation code for the connector. This activation code is used to establish communication between your tenant and your connector instance.

Prerequisites

You have your VMware Identity Manager tenant address. For example, mycompany.vmwareidentity.com. VMware uses the vmwareidentity.com domain. When you receive your confirmation, go to your tenant URL and sign in to the VMware Identity Manager administration console using the local admin credentials you received. This admin is a local user.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the administration console.
  2. Click Accept to accept the Terms and Conditions agreement.
  3. Click the Identity & Access Management tab.
  4. Click Setup.
  5. On the Connectors page, click Add Connector.
  6. Enter a name for the connector.
  7. Click Generate Activation Code.

    The activation code displays on the page.

  8. Copy the activation code and save it.
