CA IDM Localization - Default Language (Spanish)

  • 1.  CA IDM Localization - Default Language (Spanish)

    Posted 02-07-2017 10:33 AM

    Hello Guys,

     

    I've been looking for documentation on how to localize CA IDM to a default language, in my case Spanish.

     

    I was able to allow users to select from a dropdown wich language they'd like to use, but there are multiple languages that are not needed. Is there a way to configure IDM to use only one default language (Eg. Spanish) or remove some of the languages that show up  when you enable Language Switching?

     

    Thanks in advanced.

    Set the imlanguage HTTP Header in a CA SiteMinder Response - CA Identity Manager - 14.0 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    In order to accomplish this you will need to have SSO in integrate with.

     

    Set the imlanguage HTTP Header in a CA SiteMinder Response - CA Identity Manager - 14.0 - CA Technologies Documentation

    When CA Identity Manager integrates with CA SSO, you can define a user’s locale preference using an imlanguage HTTP header. In CA SSO, you set this header within a CA SSO response and specify a user attribute as the header’s value. This imlanguage header acts as the highest priority locale preference for a user.

    If you don't have SSO integrated, the other way to do this is to simply replace the iam_im.ear/custom/resourceBundles/IMSResources.properties with IMSResources_es.properties. You'll need to do this with all of the other properties files in that directory as well.

     

    IM uses the unlabelled files as the defaults. Copying the *_es.properties files to lose the "_es" would make this content the default. In this case "es" is for Spanish.
