Supported entity types settings

To configure entity types that are supported by the member repositories.

  1. In the admin console, click...

      Security | Global security

  2. Under User account repository, select Federated repositories from the Available realm definitions field and click Configure.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Supported entity types.

  4. Click the name of a configured entity type to set its configuration.

You must configure the supported entity types before we can manage this account with Users and Groups in the admin console. The Base entry for the default parent determines the repository location where entities of the specified type are placed on write operations by user and group management.

When you finish adding or updating the federated repository configuration, go to the Security > Global security panel and click Apply to validate the changes.
