What's New in Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP User Management?

This chapter provides an overview of the updates made to the software and documentation for the SAP User Management connector in release 9.0.4.8.

See Also:

The earlier release of this guide for information about updates that were new for that release

The updates discussed in this chapter are divided into the following categories:

Software Updates

The following sections discuss software updates:

Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.1

The following is a software update in release 9.0.4.1:

Support for Oracle Application Server

In this release, the connector supports Oracle Application Server. Changes related to this software update have been made in the following sections:

From Chapter 5, "Known Issues", the following item has been removed:

The connector uses the JCO API that supports JDK 1.4 to communicate with SAP User Management. Oracle Identity Manager supports the Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J) release that works on JDK 1.5. Therefore, the connector does not support OC4J.

Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.1_6629957

The following are issues resolved in release 9.0.4.1_6629957:

Bug Number Issue Resolution

6629957

When you add or remove a single role from an SAP user through a provisioning operation, all roles assigned to that SAP user have the effective date (Start date) changed to the current date on the target system.

This issue has been resolved. When you add or remove a role, the Start Date and End Date values on the target system are not changed.


Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.2

The following are issues resolved in release 9.0.4.2:

Bug Number Issue Resolution

6933371

A reconciliation run with the SAP R/3 target system failed if the number of lines of the query created in the target system (when the scheduled task was run) went beyond the internal limit set in the target system. The "Error in module RSQL of the database interface" error message was displayed on the target system as the outcome of the reconciliation run.

To resolve this issue, the Exclude changes by SAPUser attribute has been added to the R3 Recon reconciliation scheduled task. You can set the value of this attribute to either yes, or no.

Note: SAPUser is the user ID that you specify as the value of the SAPUser parameter while performing the procedure described in the "Defining IT Resources" section of the connector guide.

You must set the value of the Exclude changes by SAPUser attribute to no to avoid the issue described by Bug 6933371.

If the value of the attribute is no, then the query statement does not contain the clause that differentiates between records created or modified by SAPUser and those created or modified by other users. This helps reduce the number of lines that constitute the query statement, and the "Error in module RSQL of the database interface" error is not displayed on the target system.

Workaround: An alternative method to avoid the issue described by Bug 6933371, is to delete the value of the TimeStamp IT resource parameter. In other words, perform a full reconciliation run.


Software Updates in Releases 9.0.4.3

There are no software updates in releases 9.0.4.3.

Software Updates in Releases 9.0.4.4

The following is a software update in release 9.0.4.4:

Using the Connector Installer

From Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0 onward, the Administrative and User Console provides the Connector Installer feature. This feature can be used to automate the connector installation procedure.

See "Installing the Connector" for details.

Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.5

The following are issues resolved in release 9.0.4.5:

Bug Number Issue Resolution

7644485

During reconciliation, the time stamp of the Oracle Identity Manager host computer is used to set the time stamp value in the TimeStamp IT resource parameter. This time stamp is used to determine which records must be fetched from the target system during the next reconciliation run.

If the time zone of the Oracle Identity Manager host computer was different from the time zone of the target system host computer, then some records that should have been fetched for reconciliation were not fetched.

This issue has been resolved. The OIMServerTimeZone attribute has been added in the scheduled task. You use this attribute to specify the time zone of the Oracle Identity Manager host computer.

See "User Reconciliation Scheduled Task" for more information about this attribute.

7418360

The java.lang.OutOfMemoryError exception was encountered if a provisioning operation involved a large number of users.

This issue has been resolved. The connector now supports SAP JCo 3.0. The issue is not encountered when you use SAP custom code files provided along with this version of the SAP JCo.

Note: SAP JCo 3.0 replaces SAP JCo 2.0 and SAP JCo 2.1. It requires JVM version 1.5 or later, and it is incompatible with earlier versions of SAP JCo.

See Section 1.1, "Certified Components" for information about the required external files.


Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.6

There are no software updates in release 9.0.4.6.

Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.7

The following are issues resolved in release 9.0.4.7:

Bug Number Issue Resolution

7558078

An error was encountered when you tried to provision the SAP R/3 resource to multiple users at the same time.

The TimeoutRetryCount and TimeoutCount parameters have been added in the IT resource definition. You use these parameters to specify the delay between consecutive retries of the Add User Role process task.

See "Configuring the IT Resource" for more information.


Software Updates in Release 9.0.4.8

The following are issues resolved in release 9.0.4.8:

Bug Number Issue Resolution
