Edit an Identity Source

You can edit identity source properties before or after the identity source is linked to the system. You must unlink the identity source from Authentication Manager before you edit User ID mapping.

Note: Use extreme caution when editing identity source properties. If you need to narrow the scope of an identity source or remap the User ID, see Identity Source Properties.

Before you begin

You must be a Super Admin.


  1. In the primary instance Operations Console, click Deployment Configuration > Identity Sources > Manage Existing.

  2. When prompted, enter your Super Admin User ID and password.

  3. Click the identity source that you want to edit, and select Edit.

  4. Click the Connection(s) tab or the Map tab to view the properties. Make any necessary changes to the fields. For a description of each field, see Identity Source Properties.

  5. Click one of the following:

    • Reset. If you have not saved your edits, you can click Reset to reset the identity source as it was before you began editing.

    • Save. Saves your changes, and displays a confirmation message.

    • Save and Finish. Saves your choices, returns you to the list of identity sources, and displays a confirmation message.

After you finish

If your changes cause a change in the set of users or groups, you may need to unlink the identity source, perform a manual cleanup, and relink the identity source.

For instructions, see Clean Up Unresolvable Users Manually.
