At IU, how do I install and upgrade Identity Finder?

If you need support for Identity Finder, the program contains a comprehensive help system. You can also visit Identity Finder Enterprise Support, which offers a searchable online help system and downloadable help files, or send email to  support@identityfinder.com .

Things to consider

To make sure you are following Indiana University and local policies and procedures, if you are IU faculty or staff, consult with your local support provider (LSP) or computer administrator before installing Identity Finder on any IU-owned workstations.

You can use Identity Finder to search your own data and other files stored in your individual computer accounts on university-owned systems. Technicians or administrators can use this tool to search data and other files stored in individual computer accounts on university-owned systems. However, in accordance with IU IT Policy IT-07, they must first either:

  • Have written permission from the individual to whom the account or device has been assigned or attributed, or
  • Provide written notification to the individual(s) describing who will use the tool, how, and for what purpose, as well as anticipated use of the resulting information.

Administrators should avoid opening the files Identity Finder locates; instead, they should send the names of the resulting files to the owner of the account or system where the files are stored, directing the owner to review the files and take appropriate action.

Upon completing a scan, you should either secure the Identity Finder log with a strong password or passphrase, or delete it.

Upgrading Identity Finder

If you use the version of Identity Finder from IUware, do not enable automatic update notifications; instead, download any new versions from IUware. Because of the way the installation package is maintained, using the installer available from Identity Finder will delete all saved settings, including the license file. This will cause the application to become unlicensed and unusable.
