There are two process, first one to add the rdbdirpassword attribute and the other one in case you need its value to be displayed encrypted


To add the rdbdirpassword to the Miscellaneous page

  • Open Identity Manager Management Console.
  • Navigate to Home › Environments › identityEnv › Advanced Settings
  • Click the Export button
  • Open the XML file and search for "<UserDefined>" without quotes
  • Add the line below inside of <UserDefined> tag, changing to the correct value
        <Property name="rdbdirpassword">Here-Type-The-Value</Property>
  • Save the file
  • Back to Home › Environments › identityEnv › Advanced Settings
  • Import the file you changed
  • Restart environment and check if the rdbdirpassword property is defined


To generate the hash you can use the password Tool
