Where to Find Documentation for Connectors

We document how to set up and use each connector, and also how to fill in the relevant fields in the User Console or Provisioning Manager.

Connectors Guide and online help

Until recently, we documented each endpoint type with a section in the Connectors Guide and a section in the online help. The Connectors Guide is available on the CA IdentityMinder Bookshelf, and the online help comes with the User Console.

Endpoint Guide and attribute list

We now document each new connector with an Endpoint Guide and an attribute list. An attribute list is an HTML page that describes every setting that is required for configuring a connector.

The Endpoint Guides and attribute lists are available on the Download page for Endpoint Guides for CA IdentityMinder. To access this page, log in with your CA Support details.

The documentation for any new connectors appears on this download page when the connector is released. A connector can be released at any time between releases of CA IdentityMinder.

You can read the documentation, and then download the new connector from CA Support and use it with your current version of CA IdentityMinder. The new connector causes new pages to appear in the User Console. However, the Help links for these new pages will not work until the connector is included in the next release of CA IdentityMinder.
