With Oracle Identity Manager 11g, application connectors like AD Connector, LDAP connector, etc., needed to be installed and configured from the /sysadmin console. This included multiple processes for each of the steps involved, like Connector Installation, Form creation, Application Instance creation, and IT Resource set up. Administrators had to complete all these separate steps, which is very tedious and time-consuming.
Great news! In Oracle Identity Manager 12c, all these steps now can be done from a single and unified UI from the /identity console itself. Administrators no longer have to access the /sysadmin console at all. This provides a quick and convenient way to onboard applications by using the Applications option on the Manage tab in Identity Self Service. You can perform all the necessary configurations to onboard an application from a single console.
This new, simplified solution has the following benefits:
- It can configure new or existing applications by using a single user interface: Identity Self Service.
- It can export configurations as application templates and configure applications by using these templates, instead of Oracle Identity Manager.
This includes setting up a situation–response mechanism for Provisioning and Reconciliation, setting up Powershell action scripts, and setting up the Transformation and Validation script.
