24.1 How Lifecycle Events Impact Integrated Components

Following are ways in which certain lifecycle events, sometimes referred to as rewiring, affect a component that is already integrated with others:

  • Reassociation

    The hostname or port of an integrated component is reassociated. For example, the hostname of an OVD server changes.

  • Test to Production

    When entities in a test or pilot environment are migrated into a pre-installed production environment, this can affect dependent components. For example, moving Oracle Identity Manager Navigator to a new production environment.


    For some components, "rewiring" to achieve Test to Production is not feasible, and it is advisable to simply create a new production instance of the server. Oracle Identity Federation is an example of a server that is freshly installed in the production environment rather than changing the test configuration.
