Global Identity Settings

There are three general settings that can be used to set global defaults.

The Monitor credential expiration setting determines whether or not NetIdMgr should monitor the credential lifetimes and issue expiration notifications.   This value is used as the default for all new identities.

The Automatically renew setting determines if renewable credentials are automatically renewed prior to expiration.  This value is used as the default for all new identities.

The Always show in the credentials list (Pinned) setting determines whether new identities are always pinned within the credentials list.  A pinned identity will always be displayed regardless of whether or not there are credentials associated with it.

Adding an identity

You can add an identity to the list of identities maintained by Network Identity Manager by clicking the Add identity ... button. You will then be prompted to specify a new identity:

Adding a new identity

When the dialog completes, it creates the configuration information for the new identity. You may then configure the new identity by selecting it and using the identity configuration panel.


Adding or removing an identity in the configuration panel only has the effect of adding or removing the identity to or from the list of identities for which configuration information is maintained.

If an identity being removed has a saved password in a key store (see Password Persistence), then the MyKeystore plug-in will remove the stored password as well.
