description :
The ForgeRock® Directory Services Core Concepts course is for students who want to learn how to implement ForgeRock® Directory Services (DS) in a ForgeRock Identity Platform™ (Platform) deployment and as a standalone service. Current platform best practices are used to deploy and maintain DS. Using lab exercises in this course, students gain hands-on experience with the important features and capabilities of DS, which they can use to deploy DS on the job.

Note that Revision A.2 of this course is built on version 6.5.1 of DS.
