7.1 Overview

Oracle IRM displays status pages to users whenever they are denied access to sealed content. This may be because they do not have the correct rights to view the content, or because their rights have expired and could not be refreshed.

Status pages are HTML pages displayed by Oracle IRM Desktop (the Oracle IRM client software) in a dialog containing an embedded instance of Microsoft Internet Explorer. There are offline and online status pages. Offline pages are generated locally by Oracle IRM Desktop, are of a standard layout, and contain only information that Oracle IRM Desktop has available. Online pages are generated by a web server, where Oracle IRM Server resides.

If the Oracle IRM Desktop computer is not connected to the network, then the offline page is displayed. If the computer is connected to the network, then Oracle IRM Desktop will try to display an online page, and if that fails to load it will fall back to displaying an offline page.


Only online status pages are customizable.

When Oracle IRM Desktop wants to show an online status page, it sends an XML document (via a POST) to a status page hosted on the web server where Oracle IRM Server resides. The standard response is to render an appropriate status page using the XML data. For example, if the user has no licenses, the status page will show a message such as "No licenses available for Top Secret context", using the XML to determine what content was being opened. For customers that wish to provide their own status pages, configuration settings are provided on the Oracle IRM pages of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console.
