Release : 14.2

Component : SIGMA-Identity Suite


To configure the protection of the IP admin console, the jboss security constraint needs to be disabled in the sigma.war file.

Edit the file sigma.war/WEB-INF/web.xml.At the bottom of the file comment out the entire security constraint.

























After making the above change, make sure you have the /sigma realm defined in the siteminder domain. 

Next, make sure you defined a form for the sigma/app realm. 

Basically, once you have the realms for /sigma and the form configured

Once the above is configured, trying to access the /sigma/admin will provide your specified form for authentication.
