9.3 Simulating Policies with Java Extensions

Policies that contain references to external Java® extensions can now be simulated by specifying the directory where the .jar file is located.

To determine or change the extension directory:

  1. Select Windows > Preferences from the tool bar.

  2. Navigate to the Designer for IDM > Simulation page.

  3. Copy the jar file containing the Java class to the specified directory and simulate the policy.

  4. Click Apply to save your changes, or click OK to save your changes and close the window.

NOTE:The Enable unsupported and experimental pre-release functionality option enables the Policy Simulator to test the policies against a live Identity Vault or the connected systems. This option is not supported in Designer 2.1 and is not documented.

Designer allows you to specify more than one directory that contains the external Java classes. To specify an additional directory:

  1. Click Add.

  2. Browse to and select the desired directory, then click OK.

  3. To remove a directory, click Remove.
