How to configure a federated repository in WebSphere

Home > Search > How-to

Using the WebSphere admin console

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere admin console, select Security Global Security.
  2. Next to Federated Repository, select Configure.

By default, when a federated repository is first set up, the administrator account will be stored in a file on the server.


Using wsadmin

The following wsadmin command will display the current type of repository being used.

wsadmin> AdminTask.listIdMgrRepositories()
'{InternalFileRepository={repositoryType=File, host=LocalHost}}'


If you would like, you can configure the federated repository to obtain credentials from other sources, such as from LDAP.
