RSA Product/Service Type: Authentication Manager
RSA Version/Condition: 8.1 SP1
|Issue||This article provides an example of how to use Authentication Manager Bulk Administration (AMBA) with the --ini parameter using a simple example of adding a user to the internal database and assigning a token to this new user where the token already exists in the Authentication Manager database.|
|Tasks||The home directory of RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 is /opt/rsa/am and will be referred to as <AMHOME> in this article. Authentication Manager Bulk Administration (AMBA) is a .jar file called AMBulkAdmin.jar and this file is located in the <AMHOME>/utils/lib folder with rsaadmin ownership and group permissions (i. e., -rw-------).|
Where the AMBulkAdmin.jar is missing from the <AMHOME>/utils/lib folder, please contact RSA Customer Support for AMBA version 1.5.0 (supported with Authentication Manager 8.1) or AMBA version 1.6.0, supported with Authentication Manager 8.2. The RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 Bulk Administration 1.5.0 Custom Application Guide (AMBA) and the RSA Authentication Manager 8.2 Bulk Administration 1.6.0 Custom Application Guide (AMBA) provides installation and operating instructions.
AMBA requires a valid license file for its operation, usually named AMBAlicense.dat. A good practice is to place the AMBA license in a new folder called <AMHOME>/utils/AMBA and use the same folder to store any related AMBA shell scripts, data files or log files.
|Resolution||AMBA has a requirement that the RSA Authentication Manager primary instance is running before using this utility. To use AMBA, an administrator would logon to the command line with the rsaadmin account, navigate to the <AMHOME>/utils folder and use the command:|
./rsautil AMBulkAdmin [options]
AMBA particular usage using --ini <inifile> parameter
-i AMBAdata01.dat -o AMBDAlogfile01.log -a [SC_administrator] -P [SC_administrator_password]
-i AMBA/AMBAdata01.data -o AMBA/AMBAlogfile.log -a ocadmin -P password00! --lic AMBA/AMBAlicense.dat
./rsautil AMBulkAdmin --ini AMBA/AMBAparams01.ini
