Provider File Management

Provider File Management

A provider file contains profile information for a security provider.
If you want to use your own third-party security providers, you must explicitly register them though the Security Providers tool. To register a security provider, you upload a provider file that contains the profile information needed for registration.
A provider file is a JAR file that contains the following data:
  • A manifest that describes one or more external security providers. Each security provider has the following settings:
    • Provider Name
    • Provider Description
    • Provider Type
    • Provider Factory Class Name
    • Properties that specify configuration details for the provider. This can be a list of name-value pairs: property names with default values.
  • Provider implementation and any required third-party libraries.
