Design Console can be easily initiated from OIM Server. If you want to know how to configure Design Console initially on OIM Server, please refer this.
But sometimes if like me, if you just need to work on design console and dont really need to do other stuff on OIM Server then you can directly run Design Console from your local Desktop/Laptop by following below steps.
a) Generate wlfullclient.jar as mentioned in this post and copy in $MW_HOME/Oracle_IDM1/designconsole/ext.
b) Using any tool copy the whole designconsole folder and its content to your local laptop/desktop.
c) Now in your local system, make following changes in xlclient.cmd as shown below.
- “@loc\java\bin\java” – ‘@loc’ points to your JDK installation
- “-DXL.HomeDir=@loc” – ‘@loc’ will be complete path to designconsole
- “config\@auth_config” – ‘@auth_config’ will be authwl.conf
d) Make sure that xlconfig.xml file in config directory of local designconsole folder points to your OIM Server.
e) Now double click on xlclient and there you go . .
