6 Managing Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper

This chapter describes Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functionality for Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper.


Services Gatekeeper is controlled through the Services Gatekeeper Administration Console, a specialized extension of the general WebLogic Server Administration Console. The console is a Web-based tool and can be run in any environment that supports appropriate Web browsers. For general information on the administration console, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Introduction to Oracle WebLogic Server at:

For some tasks, you can also use scripts that run in the WebLogic Scripting Tool. For details, see "Oracle WebLogic Scripting Tool" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Concepts Guide at:

In addition, all or selected parts of the management application can be integrated with external OSS using JMX/JMS. Additionally, alarms can be distributed using SNMP traps.

Finally, the application service provider management tool functionality can be integrated with PRM and CRM systems using the Services Gatekeeper Partner Relationship Management Interfaces.

Administrative users can be divided into user groups with access to different aspects of the administrative functionality. Within user groups, individual users can have differing levels of access. See System Administrator's Guide for more information.

The WebLogic and Services Gatekeeper Administration Console

As stated earlier, the Services Gatekeeper Administration Console is a Web browser-based, graphical user interface that you use to manage a WebLogic Server domain.

A standard production installation for Services Gatekeeper consists of at least one WebLogic Server domain. One instance of WebLogic Server in each domain is configured as an Administration Server.

The Administration Server hosts the Administration Console and provides a central point for managing a Services Gatekeeper domain. All other server instances in the domain are called Managed Servers. In Services Gatekeeper, they are divided into Access Tiers and Network Tiers. In a domain that contains only a single WebLogic Server instance, such as a development environment, that server functions as the Administration Server and both Managed Servers, that is, the Access Tier and the Network Tier.
