The Platform Receiver#

The Platform Receiver processes provisioning events received from the Event Journal Services component of the core driver by calling the IDM Fan Out Unix Receiver Scripts.

The Platform Receiver communicates with Event Journal Services using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Data is encoded using UTF-8. You can use the CODEPAGE statement in the platform configuration file to configure the Platform Receiver to convert data using a specified code page.

For details about the platform configuration file, see the Documentation for the Platform Services Planning Guide and Reference.

Run the Platform Receiver on a schedule that is appropriate for your requirements. For details about Platform Receiver operation, see the Platform Services Planning Guide and Reference.

The Platform Receiver reads its configuration information from ASAM/data/asamplat.conf, the platform configuration file. For details about the platform configuration file, see the Platform Services Planning Guide and Reference.

The Platform Receiver logs messages to the SYSLOG facility specified by the SYSLOGFACILITY statement in the platform configuration file. For details about the platform configuration file, see the Platform Services Planning Guide and Reference. When the Platform Receiver successfully updates a password in the local security system or Samba password file, it logs a message to SYSLOG.
