Main configuration aspects for Kobil AST

The basis for any Kobil AST configuration in Airlock IAM is the connection to the SSMS. The plugin Kobil SSMS Client has trhee main properties:

  • Portal Lib Config
  • Trust Store
  • Key Store

These are 3 files that can be exported from the SSMS installation. The Portal Lib Config is an XML file that contains the connection information.

Make sure that you use authenticated communication with the SSMS server, to avoid interference with other applications communicating with the server. This is achieved by configuring the "Portal Services" on the SSMS and adding the libPortalAstId and portalSharedSecret Properties in the XML file.asdfasdf

A PortalLib configuration XML will look similar to this example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
            <value xsi:type="xs:int" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:xsi="">20000</value>
            <value xsi:type="xs:int" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:xsi="">20000</value>
            <value xsi:type="xs:boolean" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:xsi="">true</value>
