Issue/Introduction

Description

I need to create a 4x agent in order to log into the FSS Administrative UI, but I have no access to the WAM UI.

How can I create a 4x agent without access to the WAM UI?

Solution

A 4x agent can be created manually in the XPS via the XPSExplorer utility as follows:

  1. Execute XPSExplorer.

    XPSExplorer is an interactive command-line utility that allows an administrator or application developer to view the data in a policy store, and it is usually located under <SiteMinderHomeDir>\bin:

    XPSExplorer

  2. Enter option #15 - Agent4x.
