Understanding default authentication profiles and operator IDs

Suggest edit Updated on July 6, 2020

When you install Deployment Manager on all the systems in your pipeline, default applications, operator IDs, and authentication profiles are installed. Authentication profiles enable communication between the orchestration server and candidate systems.

On the orchestration server, the following items are installed:

  • The Pega Deployment Manager application.
  • The DMReleaseAdmin operator ID, which release managers use to log in to the Pega Deployment Manager application. You must enable this operator ID and specify its password.
  • The DMAppAdmin authentication profile. The orchestration server uses this authentication profile to communicate with candidate systems so that it can run tasks in the pipeline. You must update this authentication profile to use the password that you specified for the DMAppAdmin operator ID, which is configured on all the candidate systems.

On all the candidate systems, the following items are installed:

  • The PegaDevOpsFoundation application.
  • The DMAppAdmin operator ID, which points to the PegaDevOpsFoundation aplication. You must enable this operator ID and specify its password.
  • The DMReleaseAdmin authentication profile. All candidate systems use this authentication profile to communicate with the orchestration server about the status of the tasks in the pipeline. You must update this authentication profile to use the password that you specified for the DMReleaseAdmin operator ID, which is configured on the orchestration server.

The DMReleaseAdmin and DMAppAdmin operator IDs do not have default passwords.
