Add an Identity Router to the Cloud Authentication Service for Authentication Manager

Perform this task if you are deploying an identity router on an Authentication Manager server. This task adds an identity router to the Cloud Authentication Service and provides you with the unique Registration Code you need to connect the identity router to the Cloud Authentication Service.

Note: This topic applies only to identity routers that are embedded in Authentication Manager. If you are deploying an identity router on a different platform, see Add an Identity Router Using the Cloud Administration Console.

Note: After an identity router is registered in a Cloud Authentication Service deployment, it cannot be reused in another deployment. For example, suppose you registered an identity router with Company A for a trial deployment, and you want to use the same identity router with Company A in a production deployment. You must add a new identity router to the production deployment.


  1. Sign into the Cloud Administration Console.

  2. Click Platform > Identity Routers.

  3. On the Identity Routers page, click Add an Identity Router.

  4. From the Where do you want to deploy the identity router? drop-down menu, select Authentication Manager.

    By default, one network interface is enabled.

  5. In the Name field, enter the Identity Router FQDN value for this identity router.
    Using the FQDN guarantees that each identity router record has a unique name, and acts as a simple method to identify the corresponding identity router appliance on your network.
  6. (Optional) In the Description field, describe this identity router. Include the IP address and domain name of the identity router in the description field.

  7. From the Cluster drop-down menu, select a cluster for this identity router.
    You must select the default cluster when you add the first identity router. You can edit and rename the default cluster after you deploy at least one identity router.
  8. In the Timeout (seconds) field, specify the length of time the Cloud Authentication Service attempts to communicate with an unresponsive identity router before logging an error and updating the connection status indicator.

  9. Click Save and Next Step.

  10. Under Registration Details, copy the Registration Code and Authentication Service Domain to a location where you can access them when you install and configure the identity router.

  11. Click Close.
