Changes to workflow, policy, data flow, or integration technology are isolated in the respective functional layers of Oracle Identity Manager 11g (, thus minimizing application-wide impact. Also, Oracle Identity Manager is flexible because all configurations are done via its powerful user interface. The product does not rely on any scripting language for setup, configuration, or process modeling. As a result, Oracle Identity Manager is the most-advanced enterprise identity management solution available.

This course begins by providing participants with a refresher of concepts associated with identity management, identity administration, and Oracle Identity Manager. Participants learned these concepts in the Oracle Identity Manager 11g: Essentials course. As a result, participants review the importance, benefits, terminology, functional aspects, and infrastructure of identity management and identity administration. In addition, participants receive refresher material about Oracle Identity Manager, including how it uses connectors manage reconciliation and provisioning workflows. In addition, participants become reacquainted with Oracle Identity Manager and its two types of consoles: Administrative Consoles (Web-based) and Design Console (Java-based), as well as forms, folders, and links that compose the Design Console and each Administrative Console.

This course teaches participants how to create configurations to provision users with external resources, both manually and through autoprovisioning. Participants then learn about key provisioning functionalities: disabling, enabling, changing the password of, and deleting a user’s account with an external resource. Then, participants learn how to modify an Oracle Identity Manager configuration to include these functionalities.

Participants learn about the concepts of reconciliation, including how authoritative reconciliation is used to identify new user accounts on trusted sources and transfer them into Oracle Identity Manager. Similarly, participants learn how account reconciliation is used to recognize changes to user accounts on no authoritative sources and transfer these modifications into Oracle Identity Manager. In addition, participants learn how to customize their reconciliation workflows by developing and deploying plug-ins.

This course teaches participants about components that compose an request and approval workflow, including the request dataset, approval processes, and approval tasks. Participants learn how to create and manage an approval workflow, including creating and assigning email notifications for the approval workflow, incorporating the approval workflow into a provisioning workflow, and using it to approve the provisioning of a user before providing the user with access rights to an external resource.

This course teaches participants about the Generic Technology Connector (GTC) framework. Participants learn about providers associated with a GTC and how to use these providers to provision and reconcile users with an Oracle Database table.

Participants learn about basic and advanced techniques used to customize the Oracle Identity Manager User Interface. Participants learn about services and APIs. Oracle provides a network-aware, Java-based API that exposes services available in Oracle Identity Manager. Services are used for building clients for Oracle Identity Manager and for integrating third-party products with the Oracle Identity Manager platform.
