17.2 Enabling and Disabling Offline Provisioning

As mentioned earlier, you enable offline provisioning at the resource object level. Off-line provisioning is applicable only when the Auto Save Form option is already selected in the Process Definition form.

To enable offline provisioning:

  1. Log in to Oracle Identity Manager Design Console.

  2. Expand Resource Management, and double-click Resource Objects.

  3. Search for and open the resource object for which you want to enable offline provisioning.

  4. On the Resource Object form, select Off-line Provisioning. This enables off-line provisioning for enable, disable, and revoke resource operations.

    When the Off-line Provisioning option is not selected, the specific resource provisioning, enable, disable, and revoke operations occur online.

  5. Click the Save icon.

To disable offline provisioning:

  1. Log in to Oracle Identity Manager Design Console.

  2. Expand Resource Management, and double-click Resource Objects.

  3. Search for and open the resource object for which you want to enable offline provisioning.

  4. On the Resource Object form, deselect the Off-line Provisioning check box.

  5. Click the Save icon.

17.3 Reports Related to Offline Provisioning

When an online provision, enable, disable, or revoke operation fails, the error messages and other information about the operation are displayed on the UI. The Offline Resource Provisioning Messages report in Oracle BI Publisher stores all the error messages.

17.4 Configuring the Remove Failed Off-line Messages Scheduled Task

Configure the Remove Failed Off-line Messages scheduled task to schedule deletion of failed provisioning operations from the OPS table. While configuring this scheduled task, set a value for the Remove Failed Messages Older Than (days) attribute.

See Chapter 2, "Managing Scheduled Tasks" for information about working with scheduled tasks.
