2 Deploying the Connector

The following sections describe procedures involved in deploying the connector:

2.1 Installing the Connector on Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.1.0.x and Release 11.1.1

Installing the connector on Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x and release 11.1.1 involves the following procedures:

2.1.1 Running the Connector Installer

Note:

Perform the procedure described in this section only if you are installing the connector on Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1.

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.

To run the Connector Installer:

  1. Copy the contents of the connector installation media into the following directory:

    Note:

    In an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, copy this JAR file to each node of the cluster.
    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x: OIM_HOME/xellerate/ConnectorDefaultDirectory

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1: OIM_HOME/server/ConnectorDefaultDirectory

  2. Log in to the Administrative and User Console by using the user account described in the "Creating the User Account for Installing Connectors" section of the following guide:

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x:

      Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console Guide

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1:

      Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager

  3. Depending on the Oracle Identity Manager release you are using, perform one of the following steps:

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x:

      Click Deployment Management, and then click Install Connector.

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1:

      On the Welcome to Identity Manager Advanced Administration page, in the System Management region, click Install Connector.

  4. From the Connector List list, select RSA Authentication Manager RELEASE_NUMBER. This list displays the names and release numbers of connectors whose installation files you copy into the default connector installation directory in Step 1.

    If you have copied the installation files into a different directory, then:

    1. In the Alternative Directory field, enter the full path and name of that directory.

    2. To repopulate the list of connectors in the Connector List list, click Refresh.

    3. From the Connector List list, select RSA Authentication Manager RELEASE_NUMBER.

  5. Click Load.

  6. To start the installation process, click Continue.

    The following tasks are performed in sequence:

    1. Configuration of connector libraries.

    2. Import of the connector XML files (by using the Deployment Manager). If you want to import the target system as a trusted source for reconciliation, then see "Configuring Trusted Source Reconciliation".

    3. Compilation of adapters.

    On successful completion of a task, a check mark is displayed for the task. If a task fails, then an X mark and a message stating the reason for failure are displayed. Depending on the reason for the failure, make the required correction and then perform one of the following steps:

    • Retry the installation by clicking Retry.

    • Cancel the installation and begin again from Step 1.

  7. If all three tasks of the connector installation process are successful, then a message indicating successful installation is displayed. In addition, a list of the steps that you must perform after the installation is displayed. These steps are as follows:

    1. Ensuring that the prerequisites for using the connector are addressed

      Note:

      At this stage, run the Oracle Identity Manager PurgeCache utility to load the server cache with content from the connector resource bundle in order to view the list of prerequisites. See "Clearing Content Related to Connector Resource Bundles from the Server Cache" for information about running the PurgeCache utility.

      There are no prerequisites for some predefined connectors.

    2. Configuring the IT resource for the connector

      Record the name of the IT resource displayed on this page. The procedure to configure the IT resource is described later in this guide.

    3. Configuring the scheduled tasks that are created when you installed the connector

      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 earlier Oracle Identity Manager releases 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.

      Record the names of the scheduled tasks displayed on this page. The procedure to configure these scheduled tasks is described later in this guide.

When you run the Connector Installer, it copies the connector files and external code files to destination directories on the Oracle Identity Manager host computer.

Installing the Connector in an Oracle Identity Manager Cluster

While installing the connector in an Oracle Identity Manager cluster, you must copy all the JAR files and the contents of the connectorResources directory into the corresponding directories on each node of the cluster. See Section 2.2.1, "Copying Connector Files" for information about the files that you must copy and their destination locations on the Oracle Identity Manager server.

2.1.2 Configuring the IT Resource

To specify values for the parameters of the ACE Remote Manager and ACE Server Remote IT resources:

  1. Log in to the Administrative and User Console.

  2. If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.x, expand Resource Management, and then click Manage IT Resource.

  3. If you are using Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1, then:

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

    • On the Welcome to Oracle Identity Manager Advanced Administration page, in the Configuration region, click Manage IT Resource.

  4. In the IT Resource Name field on the Manage IT Resource page, enter the name of the IT resource and then click Search.

  5. Click the edit icon for the IT resource.

2.3.1 Parameters of the ACE Remote Manager IT Resource

You must specify values for the ACE Remote Manager IT resource parameters listed in the following table:

Parameter Description
service name Remote manager service name

RManager

url Remote manager URL

For example: rmi://10.1.1.114:12346


2.3.2 Parameters of the ACE Server Remote IT Resource

You must specify values for the ACE Server Remote IT resource parameters listed in the following table:

Parameter Description
ACEAdminMode Admin mode through which the connector connects to RSA Authentication Manager for provisioning and reconciliation

The value can be Host or Remote.

Note: If the value is Remote, then remote manager service will login to RSA Authentication Manager using the user credentials ACEAdminPassCode and ACEAdminUserId.

If ACEAdminMode is in Host mode and if Remote Manager is started as Windows service, then that service has to be run under OS user who has installed RSA Authentication Manager.

If ACEAdminMode is in Host mode, then Remote Manager starts with OS user who has installed RSA Authentication Manager.

ACEAdminPassCode Admin passcode, which is required only when the admin mode is Remote

The value is encrypted after the changes to the IT resource are saved.

Sample value: 123456

See the "Configuring the Connector in Remote Mode by Using a Dynamic Passcode" section for information about the values you can specify for this parameter.

ACEAdminUserId Admin user ID, which is required when the admin mode is either Remote or Host.
Target Locale: Country Country code

Default value: US

Note: You must specify the value in uppercase.

Target Locale: Language Language code

You can select one of the following:

  • English: en

  • Japanese: jp

  • French: fr

Note: You must specify the value in lowercase.


2.4 Configuring the Oracle Identity Manager Server

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

Note:

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

2.4.1 Changing to the Required Input Locale

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.

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

While performing the instructions described in the "Copying Connector Files" section, the resource bundles are copied from the resources directory on the installation media into the OIM_HOME/xellerate/connectorResources directory on an Oracle Identity Manager release from 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 or release 9.1.0.x and into the Oracle Identity Manager database for Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1. Whenever you add a new resource bundle in 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 an Oracle Identity Manager release from 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 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 an Oracle Identity Manager release from 9.0.1 through 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 an Oracle Identity Manager release from 9.0.1 through 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.

2.4.3 Enabling Logging

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

Then, perform the following procedure:

2.4.3.1 Enabling Logging on an Oracle Identity Manager release from 9.0.1 through 9.0.3.2 or Release 9.1.0.x

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:

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 may 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.RSA_ACE=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.RSA_ACE=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.RSA_ACE">
         <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.RSA_ACE">
         <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.RSA_ACE=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.RSA_ACE=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
    
  • 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.RSA_ACE=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.RSA_ACE=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
    

2.4.3.2 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 2-1.

Table 2-1 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='rsa-ace-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.RSA_ACE" level="[LOG_LEVEL]" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="rsa-ace-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 2-1 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='rsa-ace-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.RSA_ACE" level="NOTIFICATION:1" useParentHandlers="false">
           <handler name="rsa-ace-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.

2.4.3.3 Enabling Logging for the Remote Manager

To enable logging for the Remote Manager:

  1. Add the following lines in the RemoteManager_home/xlremote/config/log.properties file:

    log4j.rootLogger=WARN,stdout,logfile
    log4j.appender.logfile.File=log_file_path_and_name
    log4j.logger.XELLERATE=log_level
    log4j.logger.XL_INTG.RSA_ACE=log_level
    
  2. In these lines, replace log_file_path_and_name with the full path and name of the log file and log_level with the log level that you want to set.

    For example:

    log4j.rootLogger=WARN,stdout,logfile
    log4j.appender.logfile.File=c:/rm_rsa_ace_connector.log
    log4j.logger.XELLERATE=INFO
    log4j.logger.XL_INTG.RSA_ACE=INFO
    

After you enable logging, log information is written to the file that you specify as the value of the log4j.appender.logfile.File attribute.

2.4.4 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 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, RSAAuthManagerXLResourceObject.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 RSAAuthManagerXLResourceObject.xml file while you have another trusted source configured, then both connector reconciliations would stop working.
  2. Set the IsTrusted 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 an Oracle Identity Manager release from 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 pane.

    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 RSAAuthManagerXLResourceObject.xml file located in the following directory:

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

      OIM_HOME/xellerate/XLIntegrations/AuthManager/xml

    • For Oracle Identity Manager release 11.1.1:

      OIM_HOME/server/XLIntegrations/AuthManager/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 IsTrusted reconciliation scheduled task attribute to True. This procedure is described in the "Configuring the Reconciliation Scheduled Tasks" section.

2.4.5 Configuring Oracle Identity Manager Release 11.1.1 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:

2.4.5.1 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 is the predefined request dataset available in the DataSets directory on the installation media:

  • ModifyAuth Manager User.xml

  • ModifyAuth Manager Token.xml

  • ProvisionAuth Manager User.xml

  • ProvisionResourceAuth Manager Token.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\AuthMgr

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.

2.4.5.2 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 2.4.5.1, "Copying Predefined Request Datasets," if you copy the files to the E:\MyDatasets\custom\connector\AuthMgr 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.

2.4.5.3 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 Auth Manager User process definition.

  4. Select the Auto Save Form check box.

  5. Click the Save icon.

  6. Repeat this procedure for the Auth Manager Token process definition.

2.4.5.4 Running the PurgeCache Utility

Run the PurgeCache utility to clear content belonging to the Metadata category from the server cache. See Section 2.4.2, "Clearing Content Related to Connector Resource Bundles from the Server Cache" for instructions.

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

2.5 Configuring the Target System

Configuring the target system involves the following steps:

2.5.1 Setting Up the Remote Manager

To set up the remote manager on the RSA Authentication Manager server:

Note:

For Solaris, you must create an ACE administrator as a preinstallation requirement for RSA Authentication Manager. This administrator is the file owner of the RSA Authentication Manager installation. Use this ACE administrator account to install the remote manager.
  1. Create the AuthManager directory on the RSA Authentication Manager server.

  2. From the installation media directory, copy the remotePackage directory into the AuthManager directory.

    For Solaris

    Log in to the Solaris server by using the user credentials of the RSA Authentication Manager File Owner that was created as a preinstallation requirement for RSA Authentication Manager. Then, create the directory into which you copy the remotePackage directory.

    Note:

    If you copy files from Microsoft Windows to Solaris, all data transfer from the FTP client must be performed in binary mode. In addition, after copying files to the Solaris server, you must check the files for the ^M character pattern.

    You must also perform required operations, such as dos2unix. As described earlier, copy all the files while using the ACE administrator credentials.

  3. To update the class files, copy the authmgr_home/lib/xliACERemote.jar file from the installation media directory to the xl_remote/xlremote/JavaTasks directory.

    Note:

    From this point onward in the guide, the full path of the remotePackage directory on the RSA Authentication Manager server is referred to as authmgr_home.
  4. Update the library files as follows:

    • On Microsoft Windows:

      Use a text editor to open the following file:

      xl_remote/xlremote/remotemanager.bat
      

      In this file, depending on the version of Authentication Manager that you are using, set one of the following as the first line of the file:

      For ACE 5.2:

      set PATH=authmgr_home/lib/ACE52;%PATH%
      

      For RSA Authentication Manager 6.0:

      set PATH=authmgr_home/lib/AuthMgr60;%PATH%
      

      For RSA Authentication Manager 6.1:

      set PATH=authmgr_home/lib/AuthMgr61;%PATH%
      
    • For RSA ACE 5.2 on Solaris 8, 9, 10:

      Set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable as follows:

      LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ACE_INSTALL/prog:$AUTHMGR_HOME/lib/ACE52Sol
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      
    • For RSA ACE 6.1.2 on Solaris 9, 10:

      Set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable as follows:

      LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ACE_INSTALL/prog:$AUTHMGR_HOME/lib/ACE612Sol
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      

2.5.2 Configuring Strong Authentication Between Oracle Identity Manager and the Remote Manager

To configure strong authentication between Oracle Identity Manager and the remote manager, you must import the required certificate from the remote manager keystore to the Oracle Identity Manager server keystore as follows:

  1. From the Oracle Identity Manager server, copy the OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver.cert file to the AuthManager_home/scripts/config directory on the RSA Authentication Manager server.

  2. Use a text editor to open the authmgr_home/scripts/AuthMgrImportXLCert.bat file.

    In this file, set the following parameters:

    set JAVA_HOME=jdk_home
    set XL_REMOTE=xl_remote
    

    For Solaris, set the following parameters in the authmgr_home/scripts/AuthMgrImportXLCert.sh file:

    XL_REMOTE=xl_remote
    export XL_REMOTE
    JAVA_HOME=jdk_home
    export JAVA_HOME
    
  3. Run the AuthMgrImportXLCert.bat file.

    For Solaris, run the AuthMgrImportXLCert.sh file.

2.5.3 Configuring SSL Client (Oracle Identity Manager Server) Authentication

To configure SSL client (Oracle Identity Manager server) authentication:

  1. Open the xl_remote/xlremote/config/xlconfig.xml file.

  2. In the <RMSecurity> section of this file, change the value of the <ClientAuth> element to true.

    The following is a code block from the xlconfig.xml file:

    <RMSecurity>
      <RMIOverSSL>true</RMIOverSSL>
      <SSLPort>12345</SSLPort>
      <SSLContextAlgorithm>TLS</SSLContextAlgorithm>
      <KeyManagerFactory>SunX509</KeyManagerFactory>
      <BindingPort>12346</BindingPort>
      <ServiceName>RManager</ServiceName>
      <LoggerConfigFilePath>log.conf</LoggerConfigFilePath>
      <ClientAuth>true</ClientAuth>
    </RMSecurity>
    

Multiple Oracle Identity Manager Servers Communicating with a Single Remote Manager

If a setup involves more than one Oracle Identity Manager server communicating with a single remote manager, then you must address the considerations described in this section.

The OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver.cert certificate for any Oracle Identity Manager installation would have the same dname value. If you import this certificate from one Oracle Identity Manager installation into the target system remote manager keystore, then you cannot directly use the same certificate from another installation for the same purpose and in the same manner.

Therefore, if one Oracle Identity Manager installation is already configured with a particular remote manager and the same is needed for another Oracle Identity Manager installation, then you must first create a certificate with a different DN for the second installation before you can use this new certificate with the remote manager.

Enter the following commands in the specified order.

  1. Generate a new key pair by entering the following command:

    jdk_home/jre/bin/keytool -genkey -alias xell2 -keyalg DSA -keysize 1024 -dname "CN=Customer1, OU=Customer, O=Customer, L=City, ST=NY, C=US" -validity 3650 -keypass xellerate -keystore OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/.xlkeystore -storepass xellerate -storetype jks -provider sun.security.provider.Sun
    

    When you run this command, ensure that the dname value specified in the preceding command, is not the same as the default value of dname, for the existing certificates in the Oracle Identity Manager keystore:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/.xlkeystore
    

    The default value is as follows:

    CN=Customer, OU=Customer, O=Customer, L=City, ST=NY, C=US
    
  2. Create a certificate request by entering the following command:

    jdk_home/jre/bin/keytool -certreq -alias xell2 -file OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xell1.csr -keypass xellerate -keystore OIM_HOME\/ellerate/config/.xlkeystore -storepass xellerate -storetype jks -provider sun.security.provider.Sun
    
  3. Export the certificate to a file by entering the following command:

    jdk_home/jre/bin/keytool -export -alias xell2 -file OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver1.cert -keypass xellerate -keystore OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/.xlkeystore -storepass xellerate -storetype jks -provider sun.security.provider.Sun
    

    This command creates the following security certificate:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver1.cert
    

    This is the certificate that you must use for configuration purposes.

  4. Import the certificate into the remote manager keystore by entering the following command:

    jdk_home/jre/bin/keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias xel2trusted -noprompt -keystore OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/.xlkeystore -file OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver1.cert -storepass xellerate
    

For configuring strong authentication between another Oracle Identity Manager Server installation and the remote manager, use the OIM_HOME/xellerate/config/xlserver1.cert file instead of the xlserver.cert file.

2.5.4 Configuring Strong Authentication Between the Remote Manager and the Oracle Identity Manager Server

To configure Oracle Identity Manager to trust the Remote Manager:

  1. On the computer hosting Oracle Identity Manager, export the certificate by running the following command:

    keytool -export -keystore KEYSTORE_FILE -storepass KEYSTORE_PASSWORD -alias ALIAS -file CERT_FILE_NAME
    

    In this command:

    • KEYSTORE_FILE is the complete path and name of the keystore.

    • KEYSTORE_PASSWORD is the password of the keystore.

    • ALIAS is the alias of the certificate to be exported.

    • CERT_FILE_NAME is the file name containing the exported certificate

    The following is a sample command:

    keytool -export -keystore D:\March11g\Middleware\user_projects\domains\MARCHWIN\config\fmwconfig\default-keystore.jks -storepass MyPa55word -alias xell -file oim.cer 
     
    
  2. Copy the exported certificate to any directory on the target system.

  3. To import the certificate, run the following command:

    keytool -import -keystore KEYSTORE_FILE -storepass KEYSTORE_PASSWORD -alias ALIAS -file CERT_FILE_NAME 
    

    In this command:

    • KEYSTORE_FILE is the complete path and name of the keystore.

    • KEYSTORE_PASSWORD is the password of the keystore.

    • ALIAS is the alias of the certificate to be imported.

    • CERT_FILE_NAME is the file name containing the imported certificate

    The following is a sample command:

    keytool -import -keystore C:\Oracle\Middleware1\Oracle_IDM1\remote_manager\config\default-keystore.jks -storepass MyPa55word -alias oimserver -file C:\Oracle\Middleware1\OIMCert\oim.cer
     
    
  4. Copy the OIM_HOME\server\config\xlserver.cert file from the Remote Manager host computer to a temporary directory on the Oracle Identity Manager host computer.

  5. To import the certificate, run the following command:

    keytool -import -keystore KEYSTORE_FILE -storepass KEYSTORE_PASSWORD -alias ALIAS -file CERT_FILE_NAME
    

    In this command:

    • KEYSTORE_FILE is the complete path and name of the keystore.

    • KEYSTORE_PASSWORD is the password of the keystore.

    • ALIAS is the alias of the certificate to be imported.

    • CERT_FILE_NAME is the file name containing the imported certificate

    The following is a sample command

    keytool -import -keystore D:\March11g\Middleware\user_projects\domains\MARCHWIN\config\fmwconfig\default_keystore.jks -storepass Welcome1 -alias rmcert -file D:\March11g\Middleware\RMCert146\xlserver.cert
    

To set up the remote manager as a trusted source for Oracle Identity Manager:

  1. On the RSA Authentication Manager server, copy the xl_remote/xlremote/config/xlserver.cert file into the following directory:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/XLIntegrations/AuthManager/scripts/config
    
  2. Use a text editor to open the following file:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/XLIntegrations/AuthManager/scripts/AuthMgrImportRMCert.bat
    

    In this file, edit the following lines to specify the path to the JDK and Oracle Identity Manager installation directories:

    set JAVA_HOME = jdk_home
    set XELLERATE_HOME = OIM_HOME
    

    For Oracle Identity Manager installed on Solaris, open the following file in a text editor:

    OIM_HOME/xellerate/XLIntegrations/AuthManager/scripts/AuthMgrImportRMCert.sh
    

    In this file, edit the following lines to specify the path to the JDK and Oracle Identity Manager installation directories:

    JAVA_HOME = jdk_home
    export JAVA_HOME
    XELLERATE_HOME = OIM_HOME
    export XELLERATE_HOME
    
  3. Run the AuthMgrImportRMCert.bat file.

    For Oracle Identity Manager installed on Solaris, run the AuthMgrImportRMCert.sh file.

2.6 Configuring the Connector in Remote Mode

2.8 Installing Software Tokens

When you use this connector to run provisioning functions that are specific to software tokens, you must provide the required input parameters, such as the Token Code.

You can determine the values of these token-specific parameters only after the RSA Software Token application is installed on the Oracle Identity Manager server or on a user computer other than the Oracle Identity Manager server.

If you are using RSA SecurID software tokens, then:

  1. Download RSA SecurID Token for Windows Desktops 3.0.5 from

    http://www.rsasecurity.com/node.asp?id=1162

  2. Install the file on the Oracle Identity Manager server.

  3. Copy the RSA SecurID software token file to an appropriate location on the Oracle Identity Manager server. The file to be copied is in the RSA Authentication Manager installation directory. The format of the directory path where you copy this file can be as follows:

    target_dir_location/Token1File/
    

    Note:

    While assigning a software token to an ACE user, you must specify the name and complete location of this file (in the db_file_location/file_name.sdtid format) in the Software Token File Name process form field.
  4. Import the .sdtid file into the RSA SecurID Token software application as follows:
