    1. Resources: In OIM’s terminology resource is external source like ERP, CRM, mainframes or LDAP Servers; to which OIM connects for Provisioning and Reconciliation

    2) Reconciliation – Process of comparing and synchronizing accounts information in target system with OIM. Data flows into Oracle Identity Manager from External Source.
    Type of OIM reconciliation - Two Type
    a) Trusted Source Reconciliation – External Source is authoritative source (eg. HR), External Source drives creation, modification and deletion of user in Oracle Identity Manager.
    b) Target resource reconciliation – external Source is non-authoritative source with which user is already provisioned.

    Events in Reconciliation – Three type of events
    a) Reconciliation Insert – OIM detects a user which does not exists in OIM
    b) Reconciliation Update – OIM detects a modification to user  which already exists in OIM
    c) Reconciliation Delete – OIM decides that user present in OIM should be removed

    3) Provisioning - Process to create, modify or delete user information in target resource is initiated by OIM. Data flow is from OIM to resource (external source)
    Type of Provisioning in OIM
    a) Day-one provisioning
    – involves initial creation of access privileges to resource(external source) for users and removal of these privileges.
    b) Day-two provisioning – modification of privileges with resources (external source) based on business needs.


    4) OIM Connector – is a container that holds information that OIM needs to reconcile user identity with external source and provision user with target resource.  Mandatory components of connector are IT Resource Type (One and Only Resource Type per connector), IT Resource (One IT resource per resource), Process Form, Process Task Adapter, Resource Object, Provisioning Process, Process Task.

      Hi Atul,

      I have a question not related to this topic.
      But thought of asking you this question anyway.

      Hi Atul,

      I have a question not related to this topic.
      Well more o less.

      We have a conflict with Siebel. We are executing the process of reconciliation, the process takes about 30 minutes and concludes with an execute status of “Success”, apparently is bringing the information correctly from Siebel, but nothing is written in the OIM.

      Any idea what happens?

      Hi Atul,

      I am referring to your book for EBS integration with OAM, and am on page 93. I can create users in EBS and they show up on OID, but the ones created in OID don;t show up in EBS. I have tested telnet connections both ways on all related OID and DB ports, and also the provisioning log, but can’t seem to resolve the issue?
      Pl help!

      hi Atul,
      I have an OIM11. provisioning problem and hope you can make comments on.
      the resource is P6 (Oracle Primavera P6), Oracle provides the OIM11g P6 connector for provisioning OIM users to P6. I have imported the connector to the OIM. it is shown in the IT Resource as “Primavera P6 EPPM Resource” in the OIM. I tried to test the provisioning with one user. What I did was : creating a provision resource request for the user by assign the P6 resource. The request failed with the error. What would be the problem(s)?

      IAM-2050014:An error occurred while initiating approvals for request oracle.iam.platform.workflowservice.exception.IAMWorkflowException: Tasklist mapping failed for workflowdefinition: default/DefaultRequestApproval!1.0 due to The task ApprovalTask specified for the workflow composite default/DefaultRequestApproval!1.0 is not valid. The corresponding error message is {1}.

      I was wondering if you had a bulk delete script we need to clean up our non-prod user OIM 11gR2 repository without harming any other tables dealing with the system . We really need to start with clean user base. ( no users or user artifacts)
