xml/ GroupwiseXLResourceObject.xml

This XML file contains the configuration for the Xellerate User. You must import this file only if you plan to use the connector in trusted source reconciliation mode.


Note:

The files in the test directory are used only to run tests on the connector.

2.2 Determining the Release Number of the Connector

Note:

If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x, then the procedure described in this section is optional.

If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x, then skip this section.

You might have a deployment of an earlier release of the connector. While deploying the latest release, you might want to know the release number of the earlier release. To determine the release number of the connector that has already been deployed:

  1. In a temporary directory, extract the contents of the following JAR file:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/JavaTasks/xliGroupWise65.jar

  2. Open the manifest.mf file in a text editor. The manifest.mf file is one of the files bundled inside the xliGroupWise65.jar file.

    In the manifest.mf file, the release number of the connector is displayed as the value of the Version property.

2.3 Installing the Connector on Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.1.0.x or Release 11.1.x

Note:

In this guide, the term Connector Installer has been used to refer to the Connector Installer feature of the Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console.

Installing the connector on Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x or release 11.1.x involves the following procedure:

2.3.1 Running the Connector Installer

2.3.2.1.2 eDirectory IT Resource

You must specify values for the eDirectory IT Resource IT resource parameters listed in the following table.

Parameter Description

Admin Id

DN of the user who has administrator rights on the target LDAP

If this administrator has read/search rights, then that would be sufficient because this administrator is used only to search for existing users and no modification is done in Novell eDirectory.

Sample value: cn=Admin,ou=People, o=xyz

Admin Password

Password of the administrator

Sample value: password

Server Address

Host name or IP address of the server hosting Novell eDirectory

Root DN

Base DN from where the search for the user starts

Sample value: o=xyz

Port

Port number of the Novell eDirectory server

Sample value: 389

SSL

Specifies whether or not SSL is to be used to secure communication between Oracle Identity Manager and Novell GroupWise

The value can be true or false. If it is set to true, then you must import the certificate of the Novell eDirectory server into the Oracle Identity Manager server.

Note: It is recommended that you enable SSL to secure communication with the target system.

Last Recon TimeStamp

For the first reconciliation run, the time stamp value is not set. For subsequent rounds of reconciliation, the time at which the previous round of reconciliation was completed is stored in this parameter.

Sample value: 2006-06-02 12:08:06

Prov Attribute Lookup Code

Name of the lookup definition that has the target attribute mappings required for provisioning

The value must be AttrName.Prov.Map.EDIR.

Recon Attribute Lookup Code

Name of the lookup definition that has the target attribute mappings required for reconciliation

The value must be AttrName.Recon.Map.EDIR.

Use XL Org Structure

If set to true, then the Oracle Identity Manager Organization structure is used during provisioning and reconciliation.

If set to false, then the value of the Organization field in the process form is used for provisioning and the organization or container in the target Oracle Internet Directory is used for reconciliation.


After you specify values for these IT resource parameters, proceed to Step 7 of the procedure to configure IT resources.

2.3.2.1.3 GroupWise IT Resource

You must specify values for the GroupWise IT Resource IT resource parameters listed in the following table.

Parameter Description

GroupWise Domain DN or Path

See the "GroupWise Domain DN or Path" section for detailed information about this parameter.

Admin User ID

DN of the user who has administrator rights on the target Novell GroupWise server

This administrator must have read/write access to the Novell GroupWise system/domain database.

Ensure that this DN is entered in the dot format and not in the comma format. For example:

cn=admin.ou=admgrp (Correct)

cn=admin,ou=admgrp (Incorrect)

Admin Password

Password of the administrator

eDir Context

The Novell eDirectory context below which the administrator is present. The administrator ID plus this context should be the complete DN of the administrator. This context is usually one level below the eDirectory tree.

For example:

Suppose the DN of the administrator is as follows:

cn=admin.ou=admgrp.o=marketing

Then, the value of this parameter can be either o=marketing or marketing.

eDir Server Address

Host name or IP address of the server hosting Novell eDirectory

eDir Tree

Name of the Novell eDirectory tree under which the Novell GroupWise domain and the administrator are present

This is the topmost level in Novell eDirectory.

Sample value: ExampleWidgets

UseEDirAuth

Specifies whether the target Novell GroupWise uses the Novell eDirectory password or the Novell GroupWise password for authentication.

If it is set to true, then the password is sent as an empty string when the Create Mailbox and Change User password/Reset Password functions are run. The password specified by the user is ignored. If it is set to false, then the password specified is set as the mailbox password.

Last Recon TimeStamp

The value is empty for the first reconciliation run. After that, the time at which the last reconciliation run was completed is stored in this parameter.

Recon Attribute Lookup Code

Contains the target attributes to be reconciled

Sample lookup definition:

AttrName.Recon.Map.GW

CustomizedReconQuery

Query condition on which reconciliation must be based

If you specify a query condition for this parameter, then the target system records are searched based on the query condition.

If you want to reconcile all the target system records, then do not specify a value for this parameter.

The query can be composed with the AND (&) and OR (|) logical operators.

Sample value: givenname=John

For more information about this parameter, refer to the "Limited Reconciliation" section.


GroupWise Domain DN or Path

The complete DN of the Novell GroupWise domain or the path of the domain folder must be specified in one of the following ways:

  • Local System Path

    The local system path can be specified in any one of the following ways:

    • By using the Domain DN path as follows:

      Domain DN: 'cn=GWdomain.ou=org_unit_name.dc=companyname.dc=com.o=org_name'
      

      For example:

      Domain DN: 'cn=MyGWdomain.ou=MyDomains.dc=ExampleWidgets.dc=com.o=EXAMPLE'
      

      Note:

      Use dots (not commas) to separate the object classes as shown in the preceding example.

    • By using the local directory path as follows:

      drive:\\domain_directory_path
      

      For example:

      f:\\groupwise\\testdomain
      
  • UNC Path

    The UNC path can be specified in any one of the following ways:

    • By using the host name as follows

      \\hostname\share\\domainfolder
      

      For example

      \\testsvr\\myshare\\testdomain
      
    • By using the IP address as follows:

      \\IPaddress\\share_name\\domain_name
      

      For example:

      \\10.0.0.1\\myshare\\testdomain
      

The recommended method is to use the DN or the local directory path. If the domain is on a different computer, then map that folder locally and mention the local path. Use this method if you are not able to connect to the domain by using the DN.

After you specify values for these IT resource parameters, proceed to Step 7 of the procedure to configure IT resources.

Perform the procedure described in this section only if you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.2 or later and you want to localize UI form field labels.

To localize field label that you add to in UI forms:

  1. Log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager.

  2. In the left pane, expand Application Deployments and then select oracle.iam.console.identity.sysadmin.ear.

  3. In the right pane, from the Application Deployment list, select MDS Configuration.

  4. On the MDS Configuration page, click Export and save the archive to the local computer.

  5. Extract the contents of the archive, and open the following file in a text editor:

    SAVED_LOCATION\xliffBundles\oracle\iam\ui\runtime\BizEditorBundle.xlf

  6. Edit the BizEditorBundle.xlf file in the following manner:

    1. Search for the following text:

      <file source-language="en"  
      original="/xliffBundles/oracle/iam/ui/runtime/BizEditorBundle.xlf"
      datatype="x-oracle-adf">
      
    2. Replace with the following text:

      <file source-language="en" target-language="LANG_CODE"
      original="/xliffBundles/oracle/iam/ui/runtime/BizEditorBundle.xlf"
      datatype="x-oracle-adf">
      

      In this text, replace LANG_CODE with the code of the language that you want to localize the form field labels. The following is a sample value for localizing the form field labels in Japanese:

      <file source-language="en" target-language="ja"
      original="/xliffBundles/oracle/iam/ui/runtime/BizEditorBundle.xlf"
      datatype="x-oracle-adf">
      
    3. Search for the application instance code. This procedure shows a sample edit for Novell GroupWise application instance. The original code is:

      <trans-unit id="${adfBundle['oracle.adf.businesseditor.model.util.BaseRuntimeResourceBundle']['persdef.sessiondef.oracle.iam.ui.runtime.form.model.user.entity.userEO.UD_NGWS_USR_GATEWAY_ACCESS__c_description']}">
      <source>Gateway Access</source>
      <target/>
      </trans-unit>
      <trans-unit id="sessiondef.oracle.iam.ui.runtime.form.model.GRPFORM.entity.GRPFORMEO.UD_NGWS_USR_GATEWAY_ACCESS__c_LABEL">
      <source>Gateway Access</source>
      <target/>
      </trans-unit>
      
    4. Open the resource file from the connector package, for example GroupWise_ja.properties, and get the value of the attribute from the file, for example, global.udf.UD_NGWS_USR_GATEWAY_ACCESS=\u30B2\u30FC\u30C8\u30A6\u30A7\u30A4\u30FB\u30A2\u30AF\u30BB\u30B9.

    5. Replace the original code shown in Step 6.c with the following:

      <trans-unit id="${adfBundle['oracle.adf.businesseditor.model.util.BaseRuntimeResourceBundle']['persdef.sessiondef.oracle.iam.ui.runtime.form.model.user.entity.userEO.UD_NGWS_USR_GATEWAY_ACCESS__c_description']}">
      <source>Gateway Access</source>
      <target>\u30B2\u30FC\u30C8\u30A6\u30A7\u30A4\u30FB\u30A2\u30AF\u30BB\u30B9</target>
      </trans-unit>
      <trans-unit id="sessiondef.oracle.iam.ui.runtime.form.model.GRPFORM.entity.GRPFORMEO.UD_NGWS_USR_GATEWAY_ACCESS__c_LABEL">
      <source>Gateway Access</source>
      <target>\u30B2\u30FC\u30C8\u30A6\u30A7\u30A4\u30FB\u30A2\u30AF\u30BB\u30B9</target>
      </trans-unit>
      
    6. Repeat Steps 6.a through 6.d for all attributes of the process form.

    7. Save the file as BizEditorBundle_LANG_CODE.xlf. In this file name, replace LANG_CODE with the code of the language to which you are localizing.

      Sample file name: BizEditorBundle_ja.xlf.

  7. Repackage the ZIP file and import it into MDS.

    See Also:

    The "Deploying and Undeploying Customizations" chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager, for more information about exporting and importing metadata files

  8. Log out of and log in to Oracle Identity Manager.

2.5.3 Configuring Trusted Source Reconciliation

While configuring the connector, the target system can be designated as a trusted source or target resource. If you designate the target system as a trusted source, then both newly created and modified user accounts are reconciled in Oracle Identity Manager. If you designate the target system as a target resource, then only modified user accounts are reconciled in Oracle Identity Manager.

Note:

You can skip this section if you do not want to designate the target system as a trusted source for reconciliation.

Configuring trusted source reconciliation involves the following steps:

  1. Import the XML file for trusted source reconciliation, GroupwiseXLResourceObject.xml, by using the Deployment Manager. This section describes the procedure to import the XML file.

    Note:

    Only one target system can be designated as a trusted source. If you import the GroupwiseXLResourceObject.xml file while you have another trusted source configured, then both connector reconciliations would stop working.

  2. Set the TrustedSource scheduled task attribute to True. You specify a value for this attribute while configuring the user reconciliation scheduled task, which is described later in this guide.

To import the XML file for trusted source reconciliation:

  1. Open the Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console.

  2. If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x, then:

    1. Click the Deployment Management link on the left navigation bar.

    2. Click the Import link under Deployment Management. A dialog box for opening files is displayed.

  3. If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x, then:

    1. On the Welcome page, click Advanced in the upper-right corner.

    2. On the Welcome to Oracle Identity Manager Advanced Administration page, in the System Management region, click Import Deployment Manager File. A dialog box for opening files is displayed.

  4. Locate and open the GroupwiseXLResourceObject.xml file, which is in the following directory:

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x:

      OIM_HOME/xellerate/ConnectorDefaultDirectory/GroupWise_904120/xml

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x:

      OIM_HOME/server/ConnectorDefaultDirectory/GroupWise_904120/xml

  5. Click Add File. The Substitutions page is displayed.

  6. Click Next. The Confirmation page is displayed.

  7. Click Import.

  8. In the message that is displayed, click Import to confirm that you want to import the XML file and then click OK.

After you import the XML file for trusted source reconciliation, you must set the value of the TrustedSource reconciliation scheduled task attribute to True. This procedure is described in Section 3.4, "Configuring Scheduled Tasks."

2.5.4 Configuring the Date Format

Depending on the Oracle Identity Manager release you are using, perform the instructions in one of the following sections:

Note:

In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, you must perform this step on each node of the cluster. Then, restart each node.

2.5.4.1 Configuring the Date Format on Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or Release 9.1.0.x

To configure the date format on Oracle Identity Manager:

  1. Open the Oracle Identity Manager Design Console.

  2. Expand Administration, and the double-click System Configuration.

  3. Add a new entry in the Server category. The following are the details:

    Name: Default date format

    Keyword: XL.DefaultDateFormat

    Value: yyyy/MM/dd hh:mm:ss z

  4. Click Save.

2.5.4.2 Configuring the Date Format on Oracle Identity Manager Release 11.1.x

To configure the date format on Oracle Identity Manager:

  1. Open the Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console.

  2. On the Welcome page, click Advanced in the upper-right corner.

  3. On the Welcome to Oracle Identity Manager Advanced Administration page, in the System Management region, click Search System Properties. Alternatively, you can click the System Management tab, and then click System Configuration.

  4. On the left pane, search and open for the Default date format system property.

  5. On the System Property Detail page, enter values for the following fields:

    • Property Name: Default Date Format

    • Keyword: XL.DefaultDateFormat

    • Value: yyyy/MM/dd hh : mm : ss z

  6. Click Save to save the changes made.

    A message confirming that the system property has been modified is displayed.

2.5.5 Changing to the Required Input Locale

Note:

In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, you must perform this step on each node of the cluster. Then, restart each node.

Changing to the required input locale (language and country setting) involves installing the required fonts and setting the required input locale.

You may require the assistance of the system administrator to change to the required input locale.

2.5.6 Clearing Content Related to Connector Resource Bundles from the Server Cache

Note:

In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, you must perform this step on each node of the cluster. Then, restart each node.

When you deploy the connector, the resource bundles are copied from the resources directory on the installation media into the OIM_HOME/xellerate/connectorResources directory for Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x and release 9.1.0.x, and Oracle Identity Manager database for Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x. Whenever you add a new resource bundle to the connectorResources directory or make a change in an existing resource bundle, you must clear content related to connector resource bundles from the server cache.

To clear content related to connector resource bundles from the server cache:

  1. In a command window, perform one of the following steps:

    • If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x, then switch to the OIM_HOME/xellerate/bin directory.

    • If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x, then switch to the OIM_HOME/server/bin directory.

    Note:

    You must perform Step 1 before you perform Step 2. An exception is thrown if you run the command described in Step 2 as follows:

    For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/bin/SCRIPT_FILE_NAME
    

    For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x:

    OIM_HOME/server/bin/SCRIPT_FILE_NAME
    
  2. Enter one of the following commands:

    Note:

    You can use the PurgeCache utility to purge the cache for any content category. Run PurgeCache.bat CATEGORY_NAME on Microsoft Windows or PurgeCache.sh CATEGORY_NAME on UNIX. The CATEGORY_NAME argument represents the name of the content category that must be purged.

    For example, the following commands purge Metadata entries from the server cache:

    PurgeCache.bat MetaData

    PurgeCache.sh MetaData

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x:

      On Microsoft Windows: PurgeCache.bat ConnectorResourceBundle

      On UNIX: PurgeCache.sh ConnectorResourceBundle

      Note:

      You can ignore the exception that is thrown when you perform Step 2. This exception is different from the one mentioned in Step 1.

      In this command, ConnectorResourceBundle is one of the content categories that you can delete from the server cache. See the following file for information about the other content categories:

      OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlconfig.xml

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x:

      On Microsoft Windows: PurgeCache.bat All

      On UNIX: PurgeCache.sh All

      When prompted, enter the user name and password of an account belonging to the SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS group. In addition, you are prompted to enter the service URL in the following format:

      t3://OIM_HOST_NAME:OIM_PORT_NUMBER
      

      In this format:

      • Replace OIM_HOST_NAME with the host name or IP address of the Oracle Identity Manager host computer.

      • Replace OIM_PORT_NUMBER with the port on which Oracle Identity Manager is listening.

    See Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for more information about the PurgeCache utility.

2.5.7 Enabling Logging

Depending on the Oracle Identity Manager release you are using, perform the procedure described in one of the following sections:

2.5.7.1 Enabling Logging on Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.x or Release 9.1.0.x

Note:

In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, perform this procedure on each node of the cluster. Then, restart each node.

When you enable logging, Oracle Identity Manager automatically stores in a log file information about events that occur during the course of provisioning and reconciliation operations. To specify the type of event for which you want logging to take place, you can set the log level to one of the following:

  • ALL

    This level enables logging for all events.

  • DEBUG

    This level enables logging of information about fine-grained events that are useful for debugging.

  • INFO

    This level enables logging of messages that highlight the progress of the application at a coarse-grained level.

  • WARN

    This level enables logging of information about potentially harmful situations.

  • ERROR

    This level enables logging of information about error events that might allow the application to continue running.

  • FATAL

    This level enables logging of information about very severe error events that could cause the application to stop functioning.

  • OFF

    This level disables logging for all events.

The file in which you set the log level and the log file path depend on the application server that you use:

  • Oracle WebLogic Server

    To enable logging:

    1. Add the following lines in the OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/log.properties file:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=log_level
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=log_level
      
    2. In these lines, replace log_level with the log level that you want to set.

      For example:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=INFO
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=INFO
      

    After you enable logging, the log information is written to the following file:

    WebLogic_home/user_projects/domains/domain_name/server_name/server_name.log
    
  • IBM WebSphere Application Server

    To enable logging:

    1. Add the following lines in the OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/log.properties file:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=log_level
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=log_level
      
    2. In these lines, replace log_level with the log level that you want to set.

      For example:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=INFO
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=INFO
      

    After you enable logging, the log information is written to the following file:

    WebSphere_home/AppServer/logs/server_name/startServer.log
    
  • JBoss Application Server

    To enable logging:

    1. In the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf/log4j.xml file, locate or add the following lines:

      <category name="XELLERATE">
         <priority value="log_level"/>
      </category>
      
      <category name="XL_INTG.GROUPWISE">
         <priority value="log_level"/>
      </category>
      
    2. In the second XML code line of each set, replace log_level with the log level that you want to set. For example:

      <category name="XELLERATE">
         <priority value="INFO"/>
      </category>
      
      <category name="XL_INTG.GROUPWISE">
         <priority value="INFO"/>
      </category>
      

    After you enable logging, the log information is written to the following file:

    JBoss_home/server/default/log/server.log
    
  • Oracle Application Server

    To enable logging:

    1. Add the following lines in the OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/log.properties file:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=log_level
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=log_level
      
    2. In these lines, replace log_level with the log level that you want to set.

      For example:

      log4j.logger.XELLERATE=INFO
      log4j.logger.XL_INTG.GROUPWISE=INFO
      

    After you enable logging, the log information is written to the following file:

    OC4J_home/opmn/logs/default_group~home~default_group~1.log
    

2.5.7.2 Enabling Logging on Oracle Identity Manager Release 11.1.x

Note:

In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, perform this procedure on each node of the cluster. Then, restart each node.

Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.x uses Oracle Java Diagnostic Logging (OJDL) for logging. OJDL is based on java.util.logger. To specify the type of event for which you want logging to take place, you can set the log level to one of the following:

  • SEVERE.intValue()+100

    This level enables logging of information about fatal errors.

  • SEVERE

    This level enables logging of information about errors that might allow Oracle Identity Manager to continue running.

  • WARNING

    This level enables logging of information about potentially harmful situations.

  • INFO

    This level enables logging of messages that highlight the progress of the application.

  • CONFIG

    This level enables logging of information about fine-grained events that are useful for debugging.

  • FINE, FINER, FINEST

    These levels enable logging of information about fine-grained events, where FINEST logs information about all events.

These log levels are mapped to ODL message type and level combinations as shown in Table 2-2.

Table 2-2 Log Levels and ODL Message Type:Level Combinations

Log Level ODL Message Type:Level

SEVERE.intValue()+100

INCIDENT_ERROR:1

SEVERE

ERROR:1

WARNING

WARNING:1

INFO

NOTIFICATION:1

CONFIG

NOTIFICATION:16

FINE

TRACE:1

FINER

TRACE:16

FINEST

TRACE:32


The configuration file for OJDL is logging.xml, which is located at the following path:

DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/servers/OIM_SERVER/logging.xml

Here, DOMAIN_HOME and OIM_SERVER are the domain name and server name specified during the installation of Oracle Identity Manager.

To enable logging in Oracle WebLogic Server:

  1. Edit the logging.xml file as follows:

    1. Add the following blocks in the file:

      <log_handler name='groupwise-handler' level='[LOG_LEVEL]' class='oracle.core.ojdl.logging.ODLHandlerFactory'>
      <property name='logreader:' value='off'/>
           <property name='path' value='[FILE_NAME]'/>
           <property name='format' value='ODL-Text'/>
           <property name='useThreadName' value='true'/>
           <property name='locale' value='en'/>
           <property name='maxFileSize' value='5242880'/>
           <property name='maxLogSize' value='52428800'/>
           <property name='encoding' value='UTF-8'/>
         </log_handler>
      
      <logger name="XL_INTG.GROUPWISE" level="[LOG_LEVEL]" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="groupwise-handler"/>
           <handler name="console-handler"/>
         </logger>
      
    2. Replace both occurrences of [LOG_LEVEL] with the ODL message type and level combination that you require. Table 2-2 lists the supported message type and level combinations.

      Similarly, replace [FILE_NAME] with the full path and name of the log file in which you want log messages to be recorded.

      The following blocks show sample values for [LOG_LEVEL] and [FILE_NAME] :

      <log_handler name='groupwise-handler' level='NOTIFICATION:1' class='oracle.core.ojdl.logging.ODLHandlerFactory'>
      <property name='logreader:' value='off'/>
           <property name='path' value='F:\MyMachine\middleware\user_projects\domains\base_domain1\servers\oim_server1\logs\oim_server1-diagnostic-1.log'/>
           <property name='format' value='ODL-Text'/>
           <property name='useThreadName' value='true'/>
           <property name='locale' value='en'/>
           <property name='maxFileSize' value='5242880'/>
           <property name='maxLogSize' value='52428800'/>
           <property name='encoding' value='UTF-8'/>
         </log_handler>
       
      <logger name="XL_INTG.GROUPWISE" level="NOTIFICATION:1" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="groupwise-handler"/>
           <handler name="console-handler"/>
         </logger>
      

    With these sample values, when you use Oracle Identity Manager, all messages generated for this connector that are of a log level equal to or higher than the NOTIFICATION:1 level are recorded in the specified file.

  2. Save and close the file.

  3. Set the following environment variable to redirect the server logs to a file:

    For Microsoft Windows:

    set WLS_REDIRECT_LOG=FILENAME
    

    For UNIX:

    export WLS_REDIRECT_LOG=FILENAME
    

    Replace FILENAME with the location and name of the file to which you want to redirect the output.

  4. Restart the application server.

2.5.8 Configuring Oracle Identity Manager for Request-Based Provisioning

Note:

Perform the procedure described in this section only if you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1 and you want to configure request-based provisioning.

In request-based provisioning, an end user creates a request for a resource by using the Administrative and User Console. Administrators or other users can also create requests for a particular user. Requests for a particular resource on the resource can be viewed and approved by approvers designated in Oracle Identity Manager.

The following are features of request-based provisioning:

  • A user can be provisioned only one resource (account) on the target system.

    Note:

    Direct provisioning allows the provisioning of multiple target system accounts on the target system.

  • Direct provisioning cannot be used if you enable request-based provisioning.

To configure request-based provisioning, perform the following procedures:

2.5.8.1 Copying Predefined Request Datasets

A request dataset is an XML file that specifies the information to be submitted by the requester during a provisioning operation. Predefined request datasets are shipped with this connector. These request datasets specify information about the default set of attributes for which the requester must submit information during a request-based provisioning operation. The following are the predefined request datasets available in the DataSets directory on the installation media:

  • ProvisionResourceGroupwise User.xml

  • ModifyResourceGroupwise User.xml

Copy these files from the installation media to any directory on the Oracle Identity Manager host computer. It is recommended that you create a directory structure as follows:

/custom/connector/RESOURCE_NAME

For example:

E:\MyDatasets\custom\connector\GrpWise

Note:

Until you complete the procedure to configure request-based provisioning, ensure that there are no other files or directories inside the parent directory in which you create the directory structure. In the preceding example, ensure that there are no other files or directories inside the E:\MyDatasets directory.

The directory structure to which you copy the dataset files is the MDS location into which these files are imported after you run the Oracle Identity Manager MDS Import utility. The procedure to import dataset files is described in the next section.

Depending on your requirement, you can modify the file names of the request datasets. In addition, you can modify the information in the request datasets. See Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for information on modifying request datasets.

2.5.8.2 Importing Request Datasets into MDS

All request datasets must be imported into the metadata store (MDS), which can be done by using the Oracle Identity Manager MDS Import utility.

To import a request dataset definition into MDS:

  1. Ensure that you have set the environment for running the MDS Import utility. See Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for detailed information about setting up the environment for MDS utilities.

    Note:

    While setting up the properties in the weblogic.properties file, ensure that the value of the metadata_from_loc property is the parent directory of the /custom/connector/RESOURCE_NAME directory. For example, while performing the procedure in Section 2.5.8.1, "Copying Predefined Request Datasets," if you copy the files to the E:\MyDatasets\custom\connector\GrpWise directory, then set the value of the metada_from_loc property to E:\MyDatasets.

  2. In a command window, change to the OIM_HOME\server\bin directory.

  3. Run one of the following commands:

    • On Microsoft Windows

      weblogicImportMetadata.bat
      
    • On UNIX

      weblogicImportMetadata.sh
      
  4. When prompted, enter the following values:

    • Please enter your username [weblogic]

      Enter the username used to log in to the WebLogic server

      Sample value: WL_User

    • Please enter your password [weblogic]

      Enter the password used to log in to the WebLogic server.

    • Please enter your server URL [t3://localhost:7001]

      Enter the URL of the application server in the following format:

      t3://HOST_NAME_IP_ADDRESS:PORT

      In this format, replace:

      • HOST_NAME_IP_ADDRESS with the host name or IP address of the computer on which Oracle Identity Manager is installed.

      • PORT with the port on which Oracle Identity Manager is listening.

    The request dataset is imported into MDS.

2.5.8.3 Enabling the Auto Save Form Feature

To enable the Auto Save Form feature:

  1. Log in to the Design Console.

  2. Expand Process Management, and then double-click Process Definition.

  3. Search for and open the Groupwise User process definition.

  4. Select the Auto Save Form check box.

  5. Click the Save icon.

2.5.8.4 Running the PurgeCache Utility

Run the PurgeCache utility to clear content belonging to the Metadata category from the server cache. See Section 2.5.6, "Clearing Content Related to Connector Resource Bundles from the Server Cache" for instructions.

The procedure to configure request-based provisioning ends with this step.

2.6 Configuring SSL

To set up SSL connectivity between Oracle Identity Manager and the Novell GroupWise server:

  1. Import the certificate from the target system into the JSDK (the JSDK that is used during installation of Oracle Identity Manager) cacerts keystore as follows:

    keytool -import –alias alias_name -file certificate_file_name_with_complete_path –keystore JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts
    

    Here, JAVA_HOME is the JDK directory used for Oracle Identity Manager.

  2. Restart Oracle Identity Manager.

  3. In the eDirectory IT Resource IT resource:

    • Set the SSL parameter value to true.

    • Set the Port parameter value to the SSL port number. Typically, this number is 636.
