Use PassPort and PassPort SSO Agent in WebSphere

You can use either PassPort or PassPort SSO Agent with Datastore in a WebSphere installation.

Use Datastore with PassPort

To use Datastore with PassPort, you need to install PassPort and configure the Datastore installation to use the installed PassPort.

If your installation has not been configured to use PassPort from the beginning, you can use the configure mode of the installer to setup PassPort parameters.

The initial installation done using the Tomcat web server,is configured to use PassPort with the same Repository. To use WebSphere applications with PassPort:

  1. Export the registry using the exportRegistry Repository command from the Repository command tool.
  2. Unregister PassPort parameters using the unregisterPassport command for the default application and other applications that you use.
  3. Import the previously exported registry file using the importRegistry command.
  4. Restart the WebSphere application server.

Use Datastore with PassPort SSO Agent

To use Datastore with PassPort SSO Agent:

  1. Install PassPort with the SSO agent option enabled.
  2. In Administration, update the Datastore Client component with the following:
    • Change the SSO port to the port used in WebSphere. For example, SSO port : 9776.
    • Change the SSO URL to the URL of the Datastore Client application used in WebSphere. For example, SSO URL : https://<websphereHost>:9776/dsclient-web.
  3. Alternately you can use the Repository command tool and modify directly the registry.xml file by exporting and importing it.
  4. Ensure that client authentication is requested on the SSL configuration used in WebSphere:
    1. In the Integrated Solutions Console, from the left side menu, select Security > SSL certificate and key management.
    2. In the SSL certificate and key management screen, click SSL configurations.
    3. In the SSL configurations screen, click the SSL configuration defined for the Datastore SSL connection.
    4. In the Quality of protection (QoP) settings screen, set the Client authentication to Required.
    5. Restart the WebSphere application server.
