To enable outbound-only connection mode for the VMware Identity Manager connector, associate the connector with the Built-in identity provider.
The Built-in identity provider is available by default in the VMware Identity Manager service and provides additional built-in authentication methods such as VMware Verify. For information about the Built-in identity provider, see the VMware Identity Manager Administration Guide.
- In the VMware Identity Manager console, select the Identity & Access Management tab, then click Manage.
- Click the Identity Providers tab.
- Click the Built-in link.
- Enter the following information.
Option Description Users Select the directory or domains that will use the Built-in identity provider. Network Select the network ranges that will use the Built-in identity provider. Connector(s) Select the connector that you set up and click Add Connector.Note: Later, when you add additional connectors for high availability, select and add all of them here to associate them with the Built-in identity provider. VMware Identity Manager automatically distributes traffic among all the connectors associated with the Built-in identity provider. A load balancer is not required. Connector Authentication Methods
The authentication methods that you enabled for the connector are listed. Select the authentication methods that you want to use.
The PasswordIdpAdapter, which was automatically configured and enabled when you created a directory, is displayed on this page as Password (cloud deployment), which denotes that it is used with the connector in outbound mode.For example:
- Click Save to save the Built-in identity provider configuration.
- Edit policies to use the authentication methods that you enabled.
- In the Identity & Access Management tab, click Manage.
- Click the Policies tab and click the policy you want to edit.
- Click Edit.
- In the Configuration page of the wizard, edit the rules. Select the authentication methods that you want to use for each rule.
- Save your changes.
