    Oracle Identity Manager is world class leading Identity Provisioning server which helps in creation of user, managing them and revoking access.
    Oracle purchased Thor Technologies and bundled Identity Provisioning Server & Audit & Compliance module as Oracle Identity Manager.

    Oracle Identity Manager is also known as Thor Xellerate Identity Manager or Oracle Xellerate Identity Provisioning.

    Few Services in Identity Manager
    1) Access Right Management : Granting & Revoking access rights for a resource (URL, site, services, server, database…)

    2) Provisioning : process that grants users, groups appropriate access rights. It involves creation of user(if not already in system), granting or revoking(deprovision) rights to access resource(application, system, database…)

    3) Deprovisioning : Opposite of above

    4) Attestation : confirming from authorized user that access right or
    other privileges are correct or not.

    Architecture of Oracle Identity Manager
    As shown in diagram above, Oracle Identity Manager uses three-tier architecture
    A) Presentation Tier
    B) Server Tier
    C) Data & Enterprise Integration Tier

    Presentation Tier consist of Administrative Console, Design Console and Custom Client.

    Server Tier consist of Oracle Identity Manager server application with
    various other component and act as bridge between Presentation Tier and
    Data & Enterprise Integration Tier.

    Data & Enterprise Integration Tier contains database server which contains Oracle Identity Manager Data.

    Components in Identity Manager
    —Oracle Identity Manager Server
    —Oracle Identity Manager Remote Manager
    —Oracle Identity Manager Design Console (Windows only)

    Requirement for Installing Oracle Identity Manager
    Oracle Identity Manager installation require
    — A Supported Application Server (You can use Oracle Application
    Server, JBOSS, Weblogic, Websphere….)
    — A supported JVM (use Sun JDK)
    — A supported Database (Oracle DB, MS-SQL)

    More on installing Oracle Identity Manager and configuration coming soon..

    8. Secgal says:

      Currently working on OIM install to sync & provision between Active Directory, sun ldap, oid & ebs. Dev & qual are up but getting push back from AD & network team over AD connectors, latency etc. Trying to find case studies & tech specs on ad connector but cannot seem to find anything. even oracle doesn’t seem to be able to assist. does anyone know where such info can be found?

    9. srikanth says:

      hi atul;
      Does ldap,oid come along with EBusiness Suite of R12 or we need to go for a seperate installation.

    10. Atul Kumar says:

      Q. Does ldap,oid come along with EBusiness Suite of R12

      No, OAS shipped with R12 is simple J2EE and Web Server

      Q. Do we need to go for a seperate installation for OID/SSO with R12 ?


    11. Vinod Santhanam says:


      I am working on OIM / Sun LDAP, when ever I am creating user in OIM, I am able to provision them, through resource profile.
      My question is how this process can be automated, i.e Once the user gets created in OIM, should automatically go to LDAP aswell?

      I am using webservie to create users in OIM, but they are not perculating to LDAP. Please advise. Thanks in advance.
