5 Identity Management

Enterprise Manager offers the following Management pack for identity management:

The following sections in this chapter describe the licensed features and links for this pack.

Management Pack Plus for Identity Management

The Management Pack Plus for Identity Management enables enterprises to proactively monitor the availability, performance, load, and security metrics of various Identity Management components. The Management Pack Plus for Identity Management helps improve performance and availability, and reduce the cost and complexity of managing Identity Management deployments, including the following environments:

Features

The Management Pack Plus for Identity Management leverages Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control's broad set of capabilities in configuration management, performance management, and service level management to effectively manage Oracle Identity Management environments.

When combined with other Enterprise Manager packs and plug-ins for managing Oracle and non-Oracle database, middleware, network devices and hosts, you can achieve complete end-to-end management of your entire Oracle Identity Management environment.

Note:

A management pack license is required to use the features described below in the Enterprise Manager graphical user interface, command-line interface, and published repository views.

The Management Pack Plus for Identity Management includes the features shown in Table 5–1.

Table 5-1 Feature Highlights of Management Pack Plus for Identity Management

Feature Benefit

Single-step discovery

Perform a single-step discovery of both Identity Management 10g and Identity Management 11g components. The supported Identity Management 10g components include Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 10g, Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) 9.x, Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) 10g, and Oracle Identity Management Suite 10g (including Oracle Internet Directory, Directory Integration Platform, Delegated Administration Services, and Single Sign-On).

The supported Identity Management 11g components include Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Identity Federation, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Identity Manager, and Oracle Adaptive Access Manager. Single-step discovery enables you to quickly set up your monitoring environment.

With the Oracle System Monitoring Plug-in for Oracle Directory Server, a simple target discovery is also provided for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (formerly Sun Java Directory Server Enterprise Edition) 6.x and 7.x, as well as ODSEE 11gR1 and 11gR1PS1.

Additionally with the Oracle System Monitoring Plug-in for Oracle Unified Directory, a similar target discovery is provided for Oracle Unified Directory 11g – including OUD Directory Server, OUD Proxy Server, and OUD Replication Gateway

Monitoring and diagnostics

Receive real-time metrics and historical data as well as alert notifications.

Proactively monitor the Oracle Identity Management environment from both a systems-oriented view and an end-user perspective. Out-of-box collection of key performance metrics for monitored components facilitates rapid time to value. This enables you to set up alerts based on warning and critical thresholds, view current and historical performance information using graphs and reports, and diagnose performance problems by identifying bottlenecks in any of the monitored targets.

Configuration

Track configuration metrics, take configuration snapshots, and compare configurations for Oracle Access Manager 10g components, as well as Oracle Internet Directory 11g, Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g, Oracle Virtual Directory 11g, and Oracle Identity Federation 11g.

Service level management

Model Identity and Access services down to the key components they rely on, define service levels based on business requirements, and report against clearly defined Service Level Objectives (SLOs).

You can also monitor your Oracle Identity Management environment from an end-user perspective using synthetic service tests. These tests simulate key end-user activities, such as logging into an application with a single sign-on. The tests are run through beacons from locations within your network to actively measure the performance and availability of your Identity and Access services.

Licensing for Service Level Management

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management (SLM) offers a rich monitoring solution that helps IT organizations achieve high availability and performance, and optimized service levels for their business services. SLM actively monitors and reports on the availability and performance of services, including end-user business functions, Web applications, and infrastructure components. Using service tests or synthetic transactions executed from remote user locations (beacons), businesses can monitor services from the end-users' perspectives and the services' correlation to the underlying IT infrastructure. In addition, SLM assesses the business impact of any service problem or failure, and indicates whether service level goals have been met.

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management was introduced as a standalone Service Level Management Pack with Enterprise Manager version 10g release 2. In Enterprise Manager 11g, Service Level Management is licensed as part of Management Pack Plus for Identity Management, as well as the following products:

  • WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition

  • Oracle Real User Experience Insight

  • SOA Management Pack Enterprise Edition

A subset of functionality in the Service Level Management Pack was previously included as part of the Diagnostics Pack for Application Server license. Customers who had licensed the Diagnostics Pack for Application Server 10g release 1 are entitled to use the following specific functionality without licensing the Service Level Management Pack 11g release 1:

  • Web Application service test monitoring with HTTP and HTTP(s) protocols

  • Host monitoring with ping protocol

Note:

Any and all methods of accessing pack functionality — whether through the Enterprise Manager Console, Desktop Widgets, command-line APIs, or direct access to the underlying data — require the Management Pack Plus for Identity Management license.

Customers who previously licensed the standalone Service Level Management Pack can continue to use Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management under their previously licensed terms. However, they are not entitled to use the additional capabilities contained in Management Pack Plus for Identity Management.

Features

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management includes the features shown in Table 5–1.

Table 5-2 Feature Highlights of Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management

Feature Benefit

Service modeling

Model critical business functions based on a wide range of supported protocols.

Complete service monitoring

Monitor service availability, performance, usage, and service level compliance.

Beacons
