N.2 Global Configuration Values

Global configuration values (GCVs) enable you to specify settings for the Identity Manager features such as password synchronization and driver heartbeat, as well as settings that are specific to the function of an individual driver configuration. Some GCVs are provided with the drivers, but you can also add your own.

IMPORTANT:Password synchronization settings are GCVs, but it’s best to edit them in the graphical interface provided on the Server Variables page for the driver, instead of the GCV page. The Server Variables page that shows Password Synchronization settings is accessible as a tab as with other driver parameters, or by clicking Password Management > Password Synchronization, searching for the driver, and clicking the driver name. The page contains online help for each Password Synchronization setting.

In iManager:

  1. Click Identity Manager > Identity Manager Overview, then click Search to search for the driver set that is associated with the driver.

  2. Browse to the driver, then click the upper right corner of the driver icon.

  3. Click Edit Properties > Global Config Values.

In Designer:

  1. Open a project in the Modeler.

  2. Right-click the driver line, then select Properties > Global Configuration Values.
