The following sections discuss updates made in the connector:
The following software updates have been made up to release 188.8.131.52 of the connector:
In this release, you can reconcile new target system resource object fields. The fields are mentioned in the "Reconciled Resource Object Fields" section.
In this release, the list of fields for which you can specify values RSA Authentication Manager user provisioning is updated. The updated list of fields is in the "RSA Authentication Manager User Provisioning" section.
In this release, you can indicate the status of the users that need to be deleted while performing delete reconciliation in trusted mode. This is done by specifying the value of the
TrustedDeleteReconObjectStatusList scheduled task attribute.
TrustedDeleteReconObjectStatusList scheduled task attribute is described in the "Configuring the Reconciliation Scheduled Tasks" section.
The CustomReconQuery reconciliation query condition is moved from IT resources to Task Scheduler. For information about CustomReconQuery, see the "Limited Reconciliation" section.
In this release, you can configure the separator while specifying multiple group names as the value of
CustomReconQuery. This is done by specifying the value of the
GroupTokenizerForCustomReconQuery scheduled task attribute, which is discussed in the following sections:
New scheduled task attributes are defined in this release of the connector that are discussed in the "Configuring the Reconciliation Scheduled Tasks" section.
In this release, the list of adapters that are imported into Oracle Identity Manager when you import the connector XML file is updated. See the "Compiling Adapters" section on page 3-8.
In the "Running Connector Tests" section on page 4-1, the following default attribute values are added:
In Chapter 4, "Known Issues", the following known issues are added:
When creating a temporary user during provisioning, you can specify start time or end time in hours, but you can not provide the start time or end time in hours and minutes. This is because the target system API accepts these values in hours (0-23) only. If you specify the time in hours and minutes, the API will throw the error. To avoid providing the time in hours and minutes format from the UI, a lookup is provided that has values from 0 through 23 for start time and end time.
To synchronize reconciliation of start time or end time with provisioning, if the target system start time or end time as 0-0:59, then it is rounded off to 0. The reconciliation of start time or end time is matched with the start time and end time of provisioning. If the target system start time or end time is in hour and minute, then the start time or end time value is rounded off. For example, 1 hour and 59 minutes is rounded off to 1 hour.
RSA Authentication Manager connector cannot be configured with multiple schedulers to reconcile users from RSA Authentication Manager because RSA ACE API is not thread safe. This means that the fields of an object or class do not maintain a valid state if multiple threads are running.
The following are software updates in release 184.108.40.206:
RSA Authentication Manager 6.1.2 running on Solaris 9 has been added to the list of certified target system versions. See "Step 1: Verifying Deployment Requirements" for information about the full list of certified target system versions.
The following is an issue resolved in release 220.127.116.11:
|8317806||During target resource reconciliation, even user records that had not been modified were fetched into Oracle Identity Manager.||This issue has been resolved. During target resource reconciliation, only newly created and modified user records are fetched into Oracle Identity Manager.|
The following are software updates in release 18.104.22.168:
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 the "Installing the Connector on Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.1.0.x and Release 11.1.1" section for more information.
RSA Authentication Manager 6.1.2 running on Solaris 10 has been added to the list of certified target system versions. See "Step 1: Verifying Deployment Requirements" for information about the full list of certified target system versions.
The following issues are resolved in release 22.214.171.124:
|5554933||During trusted source reconciliation, two reconciliation events were created for each user record fetched from the target system.||This issue has been resolved. Only a single reconciliation event is created for each user record fetched from the target system.|
|8517925||Delete user task was rejected in delete user reconciliation.||This issue has been resolved. The delete user task is working as expected.|
|5180636||Null response received after resetting the Pin.||This issue has been resolved.|
|8525566||Delete reconciliation fetched records that were not deleted.||This issue has been resolved.|
The following are the software updates in release 126.96.36.199:
