Configure Tivoli repository

A Tivoli repository is used to authenticate clients against a running instance of a Tivoli server. All authentication filters can pass identity credentials to the Tivoli repository in order to authenticate clients. The Tivoli server decides if the client is authenticated, and API Gateway subsequently enforces the decision.

This section describes how to configure the IBM Tivoli Access Manager (TAM) repository using Policy Studio. For more information on working in Policy Studio, see the API Gateway Policy Developer Guide.

  1. In the node tree, click Environment Configuration > External Connections > Authentication Repositories > Tivoli Repositories, and select Add a new Repository.
  2. Enter a name for the repository (for example, Tivoli Repository).
  3. Click Settings, ensure the correct Tivoli connection is selected, and click Finish.

When configuring an authentication filter, you can select the Tivoli repository to authenticate clients against. The authentication filter uses the connection details of the API Gateway instance was selected for the repository.

For more details on the fields and options in this configuration window, see Tivoli repositories in the API Gateway Policy Developer Guide.
