Session information & Best Practices


  1. Connect to your AWS instance from your computer
    1. Locate your machine’s IP address and password here.
    2. Follow instructions in the Prerequisites documentation.
  2. Install the Zoom app if you do not already have it – it is nice if you have a camera available that you can turn on from time to time so we can all put names to faces. 🙂
  3. Install the Slack app if you do not already have it and make sure you are in the midpoint-training-spring2020 channel
  4. Read the Practical Identity Management with midPoint manual
  5. Explore the midPoint wiki to learn more about this identity management and access government system.

Training Environment

The training environment will be made available to students via Amazon Web Services (AWS). IP addresses and credentials will be provided several days before the class. Further instructions are available in the pre-requisite guide (from above).

Computer Setup for the Morning of Training

  1. If you have multiple monitors available, that would be useful but not required
    1. Might be nice to not use a separate computer for Zoom and exercises, so you can share your screen if needed
  2. Open the Slack app to the midpoint-training-spring2020 channel
  3. Open the Zoom app and connect to the Main zoom meeting (pinned from slack channel)
    1. Please mute yourself and either keep your camera on or be prepared to turn it on while speaking so we can put names to faces
