The VMware Identity Manager Administration Guide provides information and instructions about using and maintaining your tenant with the VMware Identity Manager service.

The initial tasks you perform from your administration console are to set up directory sync with your Active Directory, configure the authentication methods that users use to sign on to their My Apps portal, and apply your custom branding to your site. After the initial setup, the key task you perform is to entitle users to resources. Other tasks support this key task by providing you with more detailed control over which users or groups are entitled to which resources under which conditions.

The VMware Identity Manager Administration Guide is intended for administrators. This information is written for experienced Windows or Linux system administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology, identity management, Kerberos, and directory services. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinAppĀ®, Citrix application virtualization, and RSA SecurID is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
