To learn more about setting up an identity router in a production environment using quick setup:


Set Up a POC Test Environment

You can set up a proof-of-concept (POC) system to explore and use the Cloud Authentication Service in a sandbox-type environment before deploying it into a production environment.

  1. Request a POC test environment from RSA Sales or your partner.

  2. Follow the instructions in POC Quick Setup Guide.

Set Up a Production Environment

  1. Place a sales order with RSA. After your sales order is processed, RSA provisions your deployment in the US-, EMEA- or ANZ-based Microsoft Azure cloud.

    RSA sends an email to the contact email address for your company with instructions needed to start using the product, including the Cloud Administration Console URL and your initial Super Admin credentials. Note that the contact email address is the email address provided to RSA Sales or the RSA Partner that your company works with.

  2. Complete the planning process, including determining your deployment.

    1. Review the Planning Guide.

    2. Select the Quick Setup Guide best suited to your needs:
