After the initial configuration of VMware Identity Manager is complete, you can go to the VMware Identity Manager console pages to install certificates, manage passwords, and download log files. You can also update the database, change the Identity Manager FQDN, and configure an external syslog server.

The configuration settings pages are available from the Appliance Settings tab in the identity manager console.

Page Name Setting Description
Database Connection The database connection setting, either Internal or External, is enabled. You can change the database type. When you select External Database, you enter the external database URL, user name, and password. To set up an external database, see Create the VMware Identity Manager Service Database.
Install SSL Certificates On the tabs on this page, you can install an SSL certificate for VMware Identity Manager, download the self-signed VMware Identity Manager root certificate, and install trusted root certificates. For example, if VMware Identity Manager is configured behind a load balancer, you can install the load balancer's root certificate.
Note: The Passthrough Certificate tab is used only when certificate authentication is configured on the embedded connector in a DMZ deployment scenario. See Deploying VMware Identity Manager in the DMZ for information.
See Using SSL Certificates.
Identity Manager FQDN On this page, you can view or change the VMware Identity Manager FQDN. The VMware Identity Manager FQDN is the URL that users use to access the service.
Configure Syslog On this page, you can enable an external syslog server. VMware Identity Manager logs are sent to this external server. See Configure a Syslog Server.
Change Password On this page, you can change the VMware Identity Manager admin user password.
