Deleting the IDM out of box environment

We have installed a new IDM 14.4 installation in our environment. During the installation, the option for deploying the out of box environment was selected.

We no longer need the out of box environment.  After deleting the directories and environment a restart of JBoss will redeploy the out of box environment.

How do we prevent the deployment of the out of box environment?

During the startup, we see the directories and environment getting deployed.

12:49:35,596 INFO  [ims.Main] (ServerService Thread Pool -- 62) * Deploying Directory : UserStore

12:49:44,407 INFO  [ims.Main] (ServerService Thread Pool -- 62) * Deploying Environment : identityEnv


Release : 14.x

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)


To prevent the out of the box environment from redeploying please perform the following steps.

1. Login into the management console
  • delete the IdentityEnv environment
  • delete the UserStore and/or ProvStore directories

2. Showdown JBoss.

3. Navigate to the following folder (You path maybe be similar in both windows/Linux)

  • Create a Backup of the META-INF folder and save it to a different location.
  • In the current META-INF folder delete all the files except for MANIFEST.MF.
    • At this point only the MANIFEST.MF file should be in the META-INF folder.

4. You can now restart Jboss and the out of box environment will not get deployed.
