For larger enterprises, creating a clustered environment for RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle helps to scale the product. The RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1 Configuring WildFly Clustering document (RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1: Configuring Wildfly Clustering ) describes how to configure a cluster using multicast/UDP for communication between the nodes of the cluster. 

 

RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1 now allows communication between the nodes in a cluster to use TCP, rather than multicast/UDP, because TCP is highly reliable and key to a more stable cluster. The new document,

 

Configure WildFly Cluster to Use TCP (RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1 Configure WildFly Cluster to Use TCP ), describes how to change current UDP/multicast clusters to use TCP-based communication.

RSA recommends that clusters use TCP rather than multicast/UDP because of some of the key differences between UDP and TCP:

 

1. TCP is connection-oriented, unlike UDP, which is a connectionless protocol.
2. TCP is highly reliable for transferring data because it uses the acknowledgment of sent information and automatically resends any lost packets. UDP does not request retransmission if the packet is lost.
3. While TCP is slower compared to UDP, this is because TCP establishes the connection before transmitting data, and ensures the proper delivery of packets. 
4. The header size of UDP is 8 bytes, while the header size of TCP is more than 16 bytes.  Releases higher than 7.1 deprecate the UDP/Multicast setup in favor of TCP protocol.

Reporting on Reports....

Posted by Jamie Pryer Employee Dec 6, 2018

A common question we get asked... "How many reports are there within RSA IGL"

The answer: LOADS!

 

Within RSA IGL we have a LOAD of out the box (OTB) reports included and shipped as standard.

All these reports can be found in the UI, by going to “Reports/Tabular” then “Create Report” button at the top.

From here you can find a lot of OTB reports by using the “type” and “Template” dropdowns.

For example, if you wanted a report on all your orphan accounts, you would select “Account” and then “Orphaned Accounts” - thats it! really simple

 

If you want a simple way to see all the reports you have in the system overall, you can execute the following query, either within something like SQL Developer or create a new a report within the UI itself

 

Main Query:

Select * from V_LIST_REPORTS;

This table tells you all the reports you have in your enviroment, both OTB and any you have also created as well.

 

Steps to create this in the UI are as follows

Note: this takes <5minutes to complete

  1. Log in as an admin user or as a user who can create reports
  2. Go to “Reports/Tabular”
  3. Click “Create Report” button
  4. Give you report a title and some details so you know what its for in future.


  5. Click the “Query” tab at the top
  6. Add the following SQL query:
    (select *  from avuser.V_LIST_REPORTS)
    Note: makes sure you wrap you the SQL in parenthesis “(“ and “)”
  7. Click the “Columns” tab
  8. Select only the following columns in the right-hand pane called “Displayed Columns” – everything else should be moved to the right.
    • Name
    • Report Description
    • Report Title
    • Last Modified Date
  9.    Click on “preview” button at the bottom to check its worked.

    These are more nice to have changes, that might make the report look a bit better, in my opinion
  10. Go to the “Grouping and Sorting” tab
  11. Select “Report Type” under Grouping, so that we can see the groups of reports we have created



  12. Click the “style” button at the bottom of the row

  13. Select “slate”

  14. Click "OK" to save and exit your report

 

Thats it, all done!
