Delphix is currently offering a SaaS-based Central Management service in beta. The use of this service requires that the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform engines  (masking or virtualization) have access to the internet and that the data services component be enabled.

Selecting enable on the data services component will prepare your engine for communication with the management service, but will not launch Central Management. A tenant must be provisioned for you by Delphix and your SAML2-based identity provider must be integrated to provide authentication for your enterprise. Once enabled this cannot be disabled. 

To enable connectivity to Central Management, you must enable the Central Management connector. To do so:

  1. Log into Delphix Setup on the engine you wish to connect to Central Management.
  2. As shown below, click on the Enable button located in the Central Management Connector section.

  3. In the Enable Central Management Connector dialog click Enable. This will connect your engine to Delphix, download the latest connector and ensure that the engine can reach Central Management.

    After enabling the component, a new Central Management section will be added to the dashboard. This will be listed as “unregistered.”
  4. Once the Central Management connector is enabled, each engine must be authenticated by someone with sysadmin credentials. This process is initiated from Central Management.

    Note, the workstation from which you are intending to authenticate must be able to access both Central Management and the engine you intend to authenticate.
