Description

VMware Identity Manager is an identity federation solution that arrives in a dizzying array of editions and delivery formats, including a cloud-based version linked to VMware's AirWatch solution and an on-premises version typically bundled with VMware Horizon. This course focuses on installing and configuring the simplest of use cases using Identity Manager's on-premises version, narrowly focusing on it's integration with VMware View desktops. In this course, VMware Horizon 7: Configure and Manage VMware Identity Manager, you'll explore the setup and initial configuration of an on-premises Identity Manager appliance. First, you'll integrate it with VMware Horizon View. Next, you'll get a quick look at centralizing authentication for web services. Finally, you'll discover SaaS-delivered cloud apps and ThinApp packaged applications. By the end of this course, you'll get an introduction into how Identity Manager offers users a single, central "front door" for many of your enterprise applications.

Hey, this is Greg Shields and you've found another of my courses in this learning path on VMware Horizon 7, this time on the setup and integration of VMware Identity Manager. I am Author Evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been working with VMware's solutions since the days that those virtual machines were nearly always just servers.

You can argue that one of the hardest parts of working with Identity Manager is figuring out exactly what it is. This VMware solution for identity federation has lived a life of several names, each with a slightly different scope. Even the Identity Manager of today arrives in both several editions and delivery formats, an cloud-based version linked to VMware's AirWatch solution and an on-premesis version typically bundled with VMware Horizon.

This course focuses on installing and configuring the simplest of use cases using Identity Manager's on-premesis version, narrowly focusing on it's integration with VMware View desktops. In this course, you'll explore the setup and initial config of an on-premesis Identity Manager appliance. You'll integrate it with VMware Horizon View along with a quick look at centralizing authentication for web services, SaaS-delivered cloud apps, and ThinApp packaged applications. And you'll leave with an introduction into how Identity Manager offers users a single, central "front door" for many of your enterprise applications.

If you've just been tasked with installing and configuring a Horizon 7 environment in your organization, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as you finish up by configuring vRealize Operations. Let's get started.
