Add additional URL to NAM

Greetings,

In our development environment we have a replica of our employee portal, and we use NAM in Dev as we would use it in Prod to provide authentication and authorization. We've begun a project where we're moving from the existing portal to a new portal, but they will both have to exist side-by-side until the it's decided that the old portal can be decommissioned.
Is it possible to configure NAM to support two sites in this manner? Can I add another URL to the IDP server? I'm not an expert on NAM by any means, and I do need help.

Cheers!

Unfortunately the IDP doesn't support this. You can only have 1 hostname for authentication.

Edward,

Thanks for the response. Not what I was hoping to hear, but thanks for giving it to me straight. 🙂

Is the only way to do this is build a whole new NAM setup? Or just a new IDP server?

Cheers,
Brian

Depends whether you are using the NAM appliance or individual servers. If using individual servers you can build a new IDP and configure/manage it
with the same admin console.

Re: Add additional URL to NAM

I am confused on why you want to add another URL to the IDP. Normally when you are protecting web sites with NAM you setup the web site in the access gateways and the IDP URL is just where the user goes to authenticate. It is the access gateways that proxy the site and grant/deny access to the resources. In that setup you would just add the new portal as a new web site in the access gateway instead of adding a new URL to the IDP. Both portals could even use the same access gateway authorization and identity injection policies assuming the new portal and the old portal will be setup the same. Either way, this is a lot less work than setting up an entirely new NAM system for one new web site. Both sites can live side-by-side and once the old portal is no longer needed you can just decommission that site from the access gateways.
