Create a child zone under the parent zone

Creating a child zone is similar to creating a parent zone. You select the parent in the left pane, then create and configure the child zone to prepare an environment into which you will migrate existing users and groups.

To create a child zone under the parent zone:

  1. Start Access Manager.
  2. In the console tree, expand the Zones node.
  3. Select the top-level parent zone, right-click, then click Create Child Zone.
  4. Type a name and description for the child zone, then click Next.

    For example, if you are organizing by functional group, this zone might be finance or engineering. If you are organizing by data center location, the child zone might be sanfrancisco or seattle.

  5. Click Finish to complete the zone creation.

The new zone is listed under the Child Zones node in the left pane.
