Software Updates in Release 11.1.1.5.0

This is the first release of the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for AS400 based on Identity Connector Framework (ICF). The following are software updates in release 11.1.1.5.0:

ICF Based Connector

The Identity Connector Framework (ICF) is a component that provides basic provisioning, reconciliation, and other functions that all Oracle Identity Manager and Oracle Waveset connectors require.

The Oracle Identity Manager Connector for AS400 is an ICF-based connector. The ICF uses classpath isolation, which allows the AS400 connector to co-exist with legacy versions of the connector.

For more information about the ICF, see the "Understanding the Identity Connector Framework" chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager.

Simplified Installation

This release of the connector has a simplified installation process compared to previous releases. The AS400 connector no longer requires an LDAP Gateway. See Chapter 2, "Deploying the Connector" for more information.

Deployment Using Connector Server

This release of the connector can be deployed using the Connector Server, which is included with the ICF. See Section 2.1, "AS400 Connector Deployment Architecture With the Connector Server." for more information.

New User Attributes

This release of the connector has an extended set of user attributes. Some attributes are stored in an OS/400 Directory Entry object. Directory Entries were not used by previous releases of the connector. See Section 1.5.1, "User Attributes for Target Resource Reconciliation and Provisioning." for more information.

You can add to the standard set of attributes for reconciliation and provisioning. See Chapter 4, "Extending the Functionality of the Connector" for more information.

New Lookup Definitions, Form Fields, and Scheduled Tasks

This release of the connector has new Lookup definitions, Form Fields, and Scheduled Jobs. See the following topics for more information:

New Resource Objects

This release of the connector has new Resource Objects: AS400 User and AS400 Trusted User. See Section 1.7, "Resource Objects Used for Provisioning and Reconciliation." for more information.

New Connector Operations

This release of the connector supports before and after actions using scripts written in the OS/400 Command Language. See Section 3.4, "Configuring Action Scripts." and Section 2.2.2.1, "Creating a Target System User Account for AS400 Connector Operations" for more information.

New Data Validation

You can now configure validation for provisioned and reconciled single-valued data according to your requirements. See Section 4.2, "Configuring Validation and Transformation" for more information.
