  • 1.  IM manual deploy on Jboss

    Posted Jul 31, 2017 02:48 AM

    We would like to deploy Identity Manager on JBOSS EAP 6.X running on customer middleware infrastructure.

    Is there any step by step guide to manually deploy iam_im.ear to JBOSS EAP 6.x (like we have for WebSphere) ?

    The best way is to use the included installer, and point it to the JBOSS folder.

    A little more information on this:

    There is no manual deployment steps for jboss.

    The ear file cannot be extracted from the installer like Websphere.

    It may be possible if you create a reference install into a jboss app server, but there is no documentation to support this.

    Yes, It is possible to deploy IDM manually on the JBOSS infrastructure and I have done this setup for a customer and has been running successfully in production(IDM 12.6.8). Having said that this deployment is not recommended and not supported by CA officially.


    DEVOPS process was used to automate the build/deployment and below are the high-level steps which we followed:


    DEVOPS Tools used:


    •       Bitbucket as a version controlling tool
    •       Maven as a build tool to package IDM application
    •       Jenkins as a deployment tool


    1.         Install IDM in a Lab or LOD environment and extract the iam_im.ear file and castylesr5.1.1.war files. And externalize the environment variables such as ra.xml, DB Credentials, custom codes/properties (if any) using the bitbucket version controlling automation.
    2.         IDM application was packaged into 2 .ear files(iam_im.ear & castylesr5.1.1.ear) using Maven build tool and deployed as a J2EE application on the Jboss 6.x using Jenkins automation.


    It is hard to set it up initially, however if you nail it down the initial setup, rest all is very easy and smoother than the regular installer based setup. It just takes less than 30 minutes to bring up an IDM in a new environment using this automation process.


    Let me know, if you need further details on this process. Thanks.

    Putting these two IDM files (.ear & .war) into JBoss App Server or any other supported App Server, consolidating them into Container and shipping that into Docker - will be the next thing I believe J

    Above described DEVOPS process was successfully tested with IDM 14.1 version too.
