More information

To integrate IBM Security Identity Governance with JSA, complete the following steps:

  1. If automatic updates are not enabled, download and install the most recent version of the following RPMs on your JSA console. If multiple DSM RPMs are required, the integration sequence must reflect the DSM RPM dependency.

    • IBM Security Identity Governance (ISIG) DSM RPM

    • JDBC Protocol RPM

  2. Configure a JDBC log source to poll for events from your IBM Security Identity Governance database.

  3. Ensure that no firewall rules block communication between JSA and the database that is associated with IBM Security Identity Governance.

  4. If JSA does not automatically detect the log source, add an IBM Security Identity Governance log source on the JSA Console. The following table describes the parameters that require specific values for IBM Security Identity Governance event collection:
