Sample Scenario

You can easily try out the identity and access management (IAM) capabilities in MWARE IAM by using the scenario explained below.

About the sample scenario

Pickup is a cab company that has many employees who use different credentials to sign in to different internal enterprise applications. Pickup will register its users and applications in MWARE IAM to fulfill its IAM requirements.


Following are two such applications:

Pickup Dispatch This application helps manage the overall operations at Pickup.
Pickup Manager This application helps allocate vehicles to drivers.

Following are three users in the company:

Rowan The company HR manager who would define the access requirements of the company.
Cameron A senior manager who needs to sign in and use both the above applications.
Alex A junior manager who also needs to sign in and use both the above applications.


Listed below are the organizational requirements that are addressed by MWARE IAM.

  • Employees need to remember multiple credentials when logging in to the many applications of Pickup. It is required to unify logins for employees with single sign-on so that employees will only have to remember a single password.

    Try out single sign-on.

  • Employee logins should be secured by making it difficult for unauthorized sources to access the applications. Therefore, it is required to apply an additional layer of security using multi-factor authentication.

    Try out multi-factor authentication.

  • External consultants have to work on Pickup apps temporarily. It is a hassle to create and delete accounts for them in the database. Therefore, it is required to log them in with their accounts in an external identity provider using federated authentication.

    Try out federated authentication.

  • With the expansion of Pickup, Rowan is having a hard time creating accounts for every employee joining the organization. Let new employees create their own accounts to speed up the process using the self sign-up capability.

    Try out self sign-up.

Set up the sample apps

To try out the sample identity and access management scenarios on your MWARE IAM instance, you need to set up the required sample applications with your MWARE IAM.

Before you begin

  • Open the /etc/hosts file and add the following entry:
    • If you are planning to use single sign-on (SSO), do not use localhost as it will cause the Tomcat naked host issue. Use instead. If you are using Windows, is considered as
    • Make sure that this is the only such entry available for this IP address in the /etc/hosts file to avoid any conflicts.
  • Download and install curl. Make sure you install the binary type file of the version you choose.

Follow the steps given below.

  1. Download the samples from GitHub and unzip.



    The root folder of the samples distribution is referred to as <IS_SAMPLE_DISTR>.

  2. Open the file in the <IS_SAMPLE_DISTR>/IS-QSG/conf/ folder and configure and as follows: is used to resolve naked hostname validation issue
  3. To configure and run the sample applications, open a terminal, navigate to the <IS_SAMPLE_DISTR>/IS-QSG/bin folder, and follow the steps given below:

    1. Execute one of the following commands to start the sample application:

      • On Linux/MacOS

      • On Windows

    2. Execute the following command to start the quickstart samples accordingly.

      • On Linux/MacOS

      • On Windows

  4. When prompted, confirm the configurations.

What's next?

Once you complete setting up the samples, you are presented with the following list of scenarios:
