|Issue||An administrator would like to remove an unwanted identity source configuration from the RSA Authentication Manager deployment.|
|Resolution||An administrator cannot simply remove an identity source due to users possibly still being registered in the authentication manager database. The following steps work where the identity source is still available and linked to the authentication manager primary instance.|
Locating the search filter in the Operations Console > Deployment Configuration > Identity Sources > Manage Existing > enter superadmin account credentials > left-click the Identity Source name > Edit > Map tab
In the Security Console > Setup > Identity Sources > Link Identity Source to System > highlight identity source name in Linked and click the arrow to move the identity source to Available.
In the Operations Console > Deployment Configuration > Identity Sources > Manage Existing > left-click Identity Source name and select Delete > Delete Identity Source Confirmation- check Yes, delete the identity source and click Delete Identity Source button.
The identity source has now been removed from the authentication manager deployment.
|Notes||As a good practice please make a backup of the authentication manager database prior to any changes and this task can be performed in the Operations Console > Maintenance > Backup and Restore > Back Up Now|
