I was asked if I could cut a quick video on the installation and configuration for ForgeRock OpenAM 13. While I had done a similar video on an earlier version of OpenAM and that the procedure by and large remains the same, I used this opportunity to get over my laziness. Here’s the video:

Addendum to ForgeRock Full Stack Configuration – Using ForgeRock OpenIG

This is an extension of an earlier post that demonstrated ForgeRock Full Stack Configuration, comprising OpenDJ, OpenAM and OpenIDM. In here we’ll plug in ForgeRock OpenIG to route traffic to/from OpenAM and OpenIDM. In the video log that follows, you’ll see:

– All urls that hit OpenIG, containing a string ‘openam’ getting redirected to OpenAM URL
– All urls that hit OpenIG, that does not contain the string ‘openam’ getting redirected to:

  1. OpenAM for Authentication if there is no valid User session and then on to OpenIDM UI
  2. OpenIDM UI if there is a valid User session
