Chapter 1 - Installing and Configuring Immuta

Audience: System Administrators

Content Summary: This page sets the context for initial Immuta installation. There is an outline of best practices, chapter objectives, and links to tutorials.


To start using Immuta, you must first install and configure it. This chapter guides you through that process, starting with installing the Immuta application. Next there is a tutorial to add a license key. After that there are instructions to set optional settings, like identity managers, external catalogs, and native access patterns.

Best Practices: Configuring Immuta

  1. Use an external IAM for user authentication with Immuta's built-in IAM to manage user attributes.
  2. Use a single external catalog; having more than one can lead to multiple truths and data leaks.
