Resolution

Ensure that the RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Authentication Source Name is the same as the IBM WebSphere JAAS Application Login alias name. This can be done in one of two ways:

In the RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle User Interface, go to Admin > System > Authentication > Create Authentication Source to create a new authentication source.

or



  1. Add a JAAS Application Login alias in IBM WebSphere that matches the one in RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle. In the IBM WebSphere User Interface, go to Security > Global Security > Java Authentication and Authorization Service > Application Logins > New. The Module class name should be defined as com.aveksa.server.authentication.TestLoginModule.
