The first step of the mapping configuration is to map an adapter instance or an authentication policy contract to your connection.
Select an adapter instance from the Adpater Instance
If you do not see the desired adapter instance, click Manage Adapter Instances to create a new instance of any deployed adapter.
If you want to customize adapter settings for this connection alone, select the
Override Instance Settings check box.
When selected, the administrative console adds a new set of sub tasks: the Override Instance tab and its sub tasks.Tip:
Alternatively, you can create child adapter instances of a base adapter instance with overrides so that such customized settings can be applied to several connections. For more information, see Hierarchical plugin configurations.
- Optional: To map an authentication policy contract (APC), select an adapter instance from the list.
- Optional: If you do not see the desired APC, click Manage Authentication Policy Contracts to create a new policy contract.
If you are editing a currently mapped adapter instance, you can select the Override Instance Settings check box. Clearing it removes all previously overridden settings for this connection. Selecting it provides you the opportunity to customize adapter settings specifically for this connection.
If you are editing a currently mapped APC, no changes can be made on this tab.
