The first step will be to access the administration console for the first time. This will invoke a wizard that asks for the following information, some of which you may need the library to supply:
Go to https://<adminconsoleaddress>:7070
Set the super-user password for the administration console:
Supply your organisation name and domain name. The domain name should be the one you use as your 'scope' in any federations you are members of and will be used to generate various default settings.
Finally enter your licence key, available from our service desk.
You can now access the admin interface:
The first of the two tabs highlighted above will allow you to specify the connection to your authentication store. This is the directory that you will be using to authenticate your users.
The example below uses ActiveDirectory or LDAP, but you can also use things like,, or a simple test provider, and even your own custom modules.
The username field defaults to sAMAccountName for ActiveDirectory, but you could use mail or any other field that suited. This is the field that users will enter on the login page.
The other tabs on this panel will let you specify a backup server and modify the error messages to match your needs.
The authentication store is connected to twice per user session by the runtime. Once with the admin bind to discover the FQDN of the user and once with the FQDN and password of the user for authentication.
The datastores tab will allow you to specify the connection to your data store. This is the directory or database you will be using to provide information about your users. It is often the same LDAP server as the authentication store; it does not have to be, however you will need to ensure that the username field from the authentication store exists in the datastore as a foreign key.
The example below uses ActiveDirectory, but you can also use SQL databases or your own custom modules:
If you changes the username field on the authentication store, you need to change this one to match.
The other tabs on this panel will let you specify a backup server and limit the available attributes.
Using a SQL server is a little different - see: using a SQL database as a datastore
If you know you will be using the proxy function, you can specify it now.
