What's New in the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for PeopleSoft Employee Reconciliation?

This chapter provides an overview of the updates made to the software and documentation for release 9.1.1.6 of the PeopleSoft Employee Reconciliation connector.

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

Software Updates

The following sections discuss the software updates:

Software Updates in Release 9.1.0

The following software updates have been made in release 9.1.0:

Software Updates in Release 9.1.0.1

The following software updates have been made in release 9.1.0.1:

Support for Oracle Identity Manager Release 9.1.0.1

From this release onward, the connector can be deployed on Oracle Identity Manager release 9.1.0.1.

Resolved Issues in Release 9.1.0.1

The following table lists the issues resolved in this release:

Bug Number Issue Resolution

8246283

The deployment.properties file is bundled in the listener (PeopleSoftOIMListener.war) file. The default message name in this properties file was the one used during testing. You had to change the message name and redeploy the listener while testing the connector and again before you started using it in your production environment.

This issue has been resolved. The message name for both testing and production environments has been set to PSFT_OIM_ER_MSG.


Software Updates in Release 9.1.0.2

There are no software updates in release 9.1.0.2.

Software Updates in Release 9.1.1

The following software updates have been made in release 9.1.1:

Support for Major Person Lifecycle Events

From this release onward, the connector helps you to manage all major person lifecycle events, from onboarding to termination and beyond a whole range of events that defines a long-term relationship a person establishes with an organization. This relationship can be defined as the person lifecycle.

The connector performs real-time reconciliation of changes in PeopleSoft including new person creation, changes to existing persons, and so on.

Whenever the status of a person changes in PeopleSoft, the status of the OIM User changes as defined in the Lookup.PSFT.HRMS.WorkForceSync.EmpStatus lookup definition.

See Section 1.5.4.2.4, "Lookup.PSFT.HRMS.WorkForceSync.EmpStatus" for more information.

Support for Standard PeopleSoft Messages

In earlier releases, the connector made use of custom PeopleCode in PeopleSoft HRMS for full reconciliation and incremental reconciliation. From this release onward, the connector uses the following standard PeopleSoft messages that are delivered as part of PeopleSoft HRMS installation:

See Section 1.4.5, "Support for Standard PeopleSoft Messages" for more information.

Enhanced Set of Lookup Definitions

Lookup definitions have been added to support reconciliation based on standard message types.

See Section 1.5.4, "Predefined Lookup Definitions" for a complete listing of the lookup definitions.

Support for Resending Messages That Are Not Processed

Standard messages provided by PeopleSoft are asynchronous. In other words, if a message is not delivered successfully, then the PeopleSoft Integration Broker marks that message as not delivered. The message can then be resent manually.

See Section 3.5, "Resending Messages That Are Not Received by the PeopleSoft Listener" for more information.

Support for Effective-Dated Lifecycle Events

The connector can recognize and respond to both current-dated and effective-dated lifecycle events.

See Section 1.4.4, "Reconciliation of Effective-Dated Lifecycle Events" for more information.

Support for the Multiple Trusted Source Reconciliation Feature of Oracle Identity Manager

The connector now supports the multiple trusted source reconciliation feature of Oracle Identity Manager. See Oracle Identity Manager Design Console Guide for detailed information about multiple trusted source reconciliation.

Support for Validation and Transformation of Person Data

You can configure validation of person data that is brought into Oracle Identity Manager during reconciliation. In addition, you can configure transformation of person data that is brought into Oracle Identity Manager during reconciliation.

See the following sections for more information:

Support for Creating Copies of Connector Objects

To meet the requirements of specific use cases, you might need to create multiple copies of the Oracle Identity Manager objects that constitute the connector. The connector can work with multiple instances of these objects.

See Section 4.8, "Configuring the Connector for Multiple Installations of the Target System" for more information.

Support for Specifying Persons to Be Excluded from Reconciliation Operation

From this release onward, you can specify a list of persons who must be excluded from all reconciliation operations.

See Section 1.5.4.3.2, "Lookup.PSFT.HRMS.ExclusionList" for more information.

Resolved Issues in Release 9.1.1

The following issues are resolved in release 9.1.1:

Bug Number Issue Description

8351580 and 8718471

The connector supported a single PeopleSoft implementation for a single Oracle Identity Manager. The connector did not allow the reuse of the adapters with multiple objects, processes, and form names required for different implementations.

This issue has been resolved. The connector now makes use of the configuration lookup definitions. The Oracle Identity Manager object references can now be configured.

8315375

The properties file was loaded multiple times during reconciliation.

This issue has been resolved. From this release onward, the connector does not require the properties file. Instead, it makes use of lookup definitions.

8919647

The connector did not retrieve the OIM User status from HR Action. It made use of person job status (active or inactive) to mark the status of an OIM User.

This issue has been resolved. The connector now makes use of a lookup definition that maps the Action taken against a person with the OIM User status. The connector now handles major person lifecycle events.

8948098

The target system date format used during reconciliation was incorrect.

This issue has been resolved. You can now specify the target system date format as the value of the Target Date Format entry in the Lookup.PSFT.Configuration lookup definition.

See Section 1.5.4.3.1, "Lookup.PSFT.Configuration" for more information.
