2 Deploying the Connector

This chapter is divided into the following sections:

2.1 Files and Directories on the Installation Media

Table 2-1 describes the files and directories on the installation media.

Table 2-1 Files and Directories On the Connector Installation Media

File in the Installation Media Directory Description

configuration/JDEdwards-CI.xml

This XML file contains configuration information that is used during connector installation.

Files in the DataSets directory

These XML files specify the information to be submitted by the requester during a request-based provisioning operation.

lib/JDEConnectorProv.jar

This JAR file contains the class files required for provisioning. During connector installation, this file is copied to the following location:

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/JavaTasks

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: Oracle Identity Manager database

lib/JDEConnectorRecon.jar

This JAR file contains the class files required for reconciliation. During connector installation, this file is copied to the following location:

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/ScheduleTask

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: Oracle Identity Manager database

Files in the resources directory

Each of these resource bundles contains language-specific information that is used by the connector. During connector installation, these resource bundles are copied to the following location:

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/connectorResources

  • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: Oracle Identity Manager database

Note: A resource bundle is a file containing localized versions of the text strings that are displayed on the Administrative and User Console. These text strings include GUI element labels and messages.

test/TroubleShootUtility.class

This utility is used to test connector functionality.

test/global.properties

This file is used to specify the parameters and settings required to connect to the target system by using the Troubleshoot utility.

test/log.properties

This file is used to specify the log level and the directory in which the log file is to be created when you run the Troubleshoot utility.

xml/JDEConnectorResourceObject.xml

This XML file contains definitions for the following components of the connector:

  • IT resource definition

  • JD Edwards User form

  • Lookup definitions

  • Adapters

  • Resource object

  • Process definition

  • Reconciliation scheduled tasks

    Note: In Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1, a scheduled job is an instance of a scheduled task. In this guide, the term scheduled task used in the context of Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x is the same as the term scheduled job in the context of Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1.

    See Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for more information about scheduled tasks and scheduled jobs.

xml/JDEConnectorXLResourceObject.xml

This XML file contains the configuration for the Xellerate User (OIM 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 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x, then the procedure described in this section is optional.

If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1, 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/JDEConnectorProv.jar

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

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

2.3 Using External Code Files

Note:

While installing Oracle Identity Manager in a clustered environment, you copy the contents of the installation directory to each node of the cluster. Similarly, you must copy the contents of the connectorResources directory and the JAR files to the corresponding directories on each node of the cluster.

The target system files to be copied and the directories to which you must copy them are given in the following table.

File on the Target System Server Destination Directory

The following JAR files from the JDE_INSTALLATION_DIR/E812/DDP/system/classes directory on the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne server:

  • ApplicationAPIs_JAR.jar

  • Base_JAR.jar

  • BizLogicContainer_JAR.jar

For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: The JAR files on the JD Edwards Target System Server must be copied to the Oracle Identity Manager database.

To copy these JAR files, run the Upload JARs utility from the temporary location to the Oracle Identity Manager database. This utility is copied into the following location when you install Oracle Identity Manager:

Note: Before you run this utility, verify that the WL_HOME environment variable is set to the directory in which Oracle WebLogic Server is installed.

For Microsoft Windows:

OIM_HOME/server/bin/UploadJars.bat

For UNIX:

OIM_HOME/server/bin/UploadJars.sh

When you run the utility, you are prompted to enter the login credentials of the Oracle Identity Manager administrator, URL of the Oracle Identity Manager host computer, context factory value, type of JAR file being uploaded, and the location from which the JAR file is to be uploaded. To upload these JARs, specify 3 as the value of the JAR type.

Extract the following template files from the JDE_INSTALLATION_DIR/E812/DDP/system/classes/samples/ConnectorSamples.zip file:

  • jdbj.ini.templ

  • jdeinterop.ini.templ

  • jdelog.properties

Rename the jdbj.ini.templ file to jdbj.ini, and rename the jdeinterop.ini.templ file to jdeinterop.ini.

Then, copy all three files to the specified destination directory.

For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/JDE/Properties

For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: OIM_HOME/server/JDE/Properties

If the EnterpriseOne server is running on Oracle Database, then copy the tnsnames.ora file to the specified destination directory.

For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/JDE/Properties

For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: OIM_HOME/server/JDE/Properties

2.5.3 Compiling Adapters

Note:

Skip this section if you do not want to use the provisioning features of Oracle Identity Manager for this target system.

Adapters are used to implement provisioning functions. The following adapters are imported into Oracle Identity Manager when you import the connector XML file:

See Also:

Section 1.6.5, "Provisioning Functions" for a listing of the provisioning functions that are available with this connector

  • Enable and Disable User

  • JDE Delete User

  • Modify Password

  • PrePopulate JDE Form

  • JDE Remove Role

  • JDE Modify User

  • JDE Create User

  • JDE Add Role

You must compile these adapters before they can be used in provisioning operations.

To compile adapters by using the Adapter Manager form:

  1. Open the Adapter Manager form.

  2. To compile all the adapters that you import into the current database, select Compile All.

    To compile multiple (but not all) adapters, select the adapters you want to compile. Then, select Compile Selected.

    Note:

    Click Compile Previously Failed to recompile only those adapters that were not compiled successfully. Such adapters do not have an OK compilation status.

  3. Click Start. Oracle Identity Manager compiles the selected adapters.

  4. If Oracle Identity Manager is installed in a clustered environment, then copy the compiled adapters from the OIM_HOME/xellerate/Adapter directory to the same directory on each of the other nodes of the cluster. If required, overwrite the adapter files on the other nodes.

If you want to compile one adapter at a time, then use the Adapter Factory form.

See Also:

Oracle Identity Manager Tools Reference Guide for information about using the Adapter Factory and Adapter Manager forms

To view detailed information about an adapter:

  1. Highlight the adapter in the Adapter Manager form.

  2. Double-click the row header of the adapter, or right-click the adapter.

  3. Select Launch Adapter from the shortcut menu that is displayed. Details of the adapter are displayed.

2.6 Configuring the Oracle Identity Manager Server

Configuring the Oracle Identity Manager server involves performing the following procedures:

2.6.1 Changing to the Required Input Locale

Note:

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

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.

2.6.2 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 9.0.3.2 and release 9.1.0.x, and Oracle Identity Manager database for Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1. 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 9.0.3.x or release 9.1.0.x, then switch to the OIM_HOME/xellerate/bin directory.

    • If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1, 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 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/bin/SCRIPT_FILE_NAME
    

    For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1:

    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 9.0.3.2 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 11.1.1:

      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.

2.6.3 Enabling Logging

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

2.6.3.1 Enabling Logging on Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 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:

  • 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.JDECONNECTOR=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.JDECONNECTOR=INFO
      

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

    WEBSPHERE_HOME/AppServer/logs/SERVER_NAME/SystemOut.log
    
  • JBoss Application Server

    To enable logging:

    1. In the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf/log4j.xml file, locate or add the following lines if they are not already present in the file:

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

    After you enable logging, 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.JDECONNECTOR=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.JDECONNECTOR=INFO
      

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

    ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/default_group~home~default_group~1.log
    
  • 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.JDECONNECTOR=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.JDECONNECTOR=INFO
      

    After you enable logging, log information is displayed on the server console.

2.6.3.2 Enabling Logging on Oracle Identity Manager Release 11.1.1

Note:

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

Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1 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='JDECONNECTOR' 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.JDECONNECTOR" level="[LOG_LEVEL]" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="jdeconnector-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='JDECONNECTOR' 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="OIMCP.JDECONNECTOR" level="NOTIFICATION:1" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="jdeconnector-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.

2.6.4 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 during a reconciliation run:

  • For each newly created user on the target system, an OIM User is created.

  • Updates made to each user on the target system are propagated to the corresponding OIM User.

If you designate the target system as a target resource, then during a reconciliation run:

  • For each account created on the target system, a resource is assigned to the corresponding OIM User.

  • Updates made to each account on the target system are propagated to the corresponding resource.

Note:

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

Enabling trusted source reconciliation involves the following steps:

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

  2. Set the isTrustedSource 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 9.0.3.2 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 11.1.1, then:

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

    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 JDEConnectorXLResourceObject.xml file located in the following directory:

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x:

      OIM_HOME/xellerate/ConnectorDefaultDirectory/JDE_RELEASE_NUMBER/xml

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1:

      OIM_HOME/server/ConnectorDefaultDirectory/JDE_RELEASE_NUMBER/xml

    Details of this XML file are shown on the File Preview page.

  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 isTrustedSource reconciliation scheduled task attribute to True. This procedure is described in Section 3.4, "Configuring Scheduled Tasks."

2.6.5 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:

2.6.5.1 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 predefined request datasets are available in the DataSets directory on the installation media:

  • ProvisionResourceJDE User.xml

  • ModifyResourceJDE 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\JDE

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.

2.6.5.2 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 2.6.5.1, "Copying Predefined Request Datasets," if you copy the files to the E:\MyDatasets\custom\connector\JDE 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.

2.6.5.3 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 JDE Process process definition.

  4. Select the Auto Save Form check box.

  5. Click the Save icon.

2.6.5.4 Running the PurgeCache Utility

Run the PurgeCache utility to clear content belonging to the Metadata category from the server cache. See Section 2.6.2, "Clearing Content Related to Connector Resource Bundles from the Server Cache" for instructions.

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