Bug Number Issue Resolution

5664763

While provisioning a mailbox to an OIM User, the values in the Visibility list on the process form were displayed in English when a non-English locale was selected for the Oracle Identity Manager deployment.

5688673

While creating access policies in the Administrative and User Console, the values of the Participating Type list on the Create Access Policy page were displayed in English even when a non-English locale was selected for the Oracle Identity Manager deployment.

7623037

Suppose an access policy for provisioning a mailbox to an OIM User was created.

During the Create Mailbox provisioning operation for a large number of users, the Remote Manager stopped functioning as the native code for running this provisioning operation was not thread safe.

This issue has been resolved. The Remote Manager continues to function when mailboxes are simultaneously provisioned to multiple users that meet the criterion specified in the access policy. This is because, the native code has now been made thread safe.

8451826

After a user reconciliation run, the user's distribution list membership information was not displayed on the distribution child form of the target system user's process form.

This issue has been resolved. After a user reconciliation run, the user's membership information is now being displayed.

This issue has been resolved. If you perform a Move Post Office provisioning operation after you delete a user from Novell eDirectory and the corresponding mailbox from Novell GroupWise, then the Move PostOffice task displays the following error message:

User does not exist in eDirectory

8521041

After a target resource reconciliation run, the Visibility list of the process form was blank.
