Installation

To configure the first IAM Sync server, the following environment variables can be set for the first server:

Variable Description Example
DB_URL JDBC URL jdbc:mariadb://dbcontainer/soffid
DB_USER Database user Soffid
DB_PASSWORD Database password 5uper5ecret
SOFFID_HOSTNAME The host name used to access to the sync server syncserver01.soffid.com
SOFFID_PORT TCP port used for incomming connections 760
SOFFID_MAIN Set to yes for the first sync server, no for the next ones yes

To configure the next sync servers, the following environment variables can be set:

Variable Description Example
SOFFID_SERVER First sync server url https://syncserver01.soffid.com:1760
SOFFID_USER Soffid user to join the security domain admin
SOFFID_PASS Soffid user password changeit
SOFFID_HOSTNAME The host name used to access to the sync server syncserver.soffid.com
SOFFID_PORT TCP port used for incomming connections 760
SOFFID_TENANT Tenant name master
SOFFID_MAIN Set to yes for the first sync server, no for the next ones no

To configure a sync server in a private network, not directly accessible from the main sync server, the following environment variables can be set:

Variable Description Example
SOFFID_SERVER First sync server url https://syncserver01.soffid.com:1760
SOFFID_USER Soffid user to join the security domain admin
SOFFID_PASS Soffid user password changeit
SOFFID_HOSTNAME The host name used to access to the sync server syncserver.soffid.com
SOFFID_TENANT Tenant name master
SOFFID_MAIN Set to yes for the first sync server, no for the next ones no
SOFFID_REMOTE Flag to enable cloud protocol yes

The following volumes are defined by default:

Volume Usage
/opt/soffid/iam-console-3/conf Configuration files, including private keys and certificates

Here you have a sample command to start a docker container running IAM sync server. Mind to specify the port number to expose the sync server docker to the outside world. It is not needed when using the cloud connectivity:

docker run -d \
   -e DB_URL=jdbc:mysql://mariadb-service/soffid \
   -e DB_USER=soffid \
   -e DB_PASSWORD=soffid \
   -e SOFFID_PORT=1760 \
   -e SOFFID_HOSTNAME=syncserver.soffid.com \
   -e SOFFID_MAIN=yes \
   --name=iam-sync \
   --publish 1760:1760 \
   --network=soffidnet \
   soffid/iam-sync

To see console log files, execute:

docker logs -f iam-sync

 

Now you can connect to the IAM console http://localhost:8080/soffid  and chek if Console and Syncserver are connected.
