Issue/Introduction

As of now Workpoint designer which I am using doesn't ask for any kind of authentication. So I was wondering how this authentication process happening. Is there a way we can enable OAuth authentication or AD-based Authentication?

Environment

Release : 14.3

Component : CA IDENTITY SUITE (VIRTUAL APPLIANCE)

Resolution

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/symantec-security-software/identity-security/identity-manager/14-4/administrating/workflow/workpoint-documentation.html
Please see this note:
Workpoint is a third-party product installed with Identity Manager. Identity Manager supports a subset of functionality in WorkPoint. For example, Identity Manager does not support the WpConsole. However, the WorkPoint documentation describes all functionality in the product. Portions of the Workpoint documentation do not apply to Identity Manager users.


Further research shows:


designer calls the init.bat/sh

call init.bat

at the bottom the init bat file is where you find the security policy:

-Djava.security.policy=..\conf\client.policy %CLIENTSAS%

This %CLIENTSAS% is only populated if you are using Websphere, if not then it uses what it finds in the 

-Djboss.ejb.client.properties.file.path=../conf/workpoint-client.properties

for weblogic user and password are sent:

# java.naming.security.principal=workpoint
# java.naming.security.credentials=workpoint

For jboss no security is used:

# remote.connection.default.connect.options.org.xnio.Options.SASL_POLICY_NOANONYMOUS=false


There is nothing in our docs that talks about these configurations, so we would not be able to provide instructions on how to change to OAuth or AD-based auth.
