4 Extending the Functionality of the Connector

After you deploy the connector, you might need to configure it to meet your business requirements. The following section describes the procedure that you can perform to extend the functionality of the connector.

4.1 Configuring the Connector for Multiple Installations of the Target System

Note:

Perform this procedure only if you want to configure the connector for multiple installations of IBM RACF.

You may want to configure the connector for multiple installations of IBM RACF. The following example illustrates this requirement:

The Tokyo, London, and New York offices of Example Multinational Inc. have their own installations of IBM RACF. The company has recently installed Oracle Identity Manager, and they want to configure Oracle Identity Manager to link all the installations of IBM RACF.

To meet the requirement posed by such a scenario, you must configure the connector for multiple installations of IBM RACF.

To configure the connector for multiple installations of the target system:

Oracle Identity Manager Design Console Guide for detailed instructions on performing each step of this procedure

  1. Create and configure one IT resource for each target system installation.

    The IT Resources form is in the Resource Management folder. An IT resource is created when you import the connector XML file. You can use this IT resource as the template for creating the remaining IT resources, of the same IT resource type.

  2. Configure reconciliation for each target system installation. See Section 3.4, "Configuring Scheduled Tasks" for instructions. Note that you only need to modify the attributes that are used to specify the IT resource and to specify whether or not the target system installation is to be set up as a trusted source.

  3. If required, modify the fields to be reconciled for the Xellerate User resource object.

When you use the Administrative and User Console to perform provisioning, you can specify the IT resource corresponding to the IBM RACF installation to which you want to provision the user.
