15 Configuring Oracle Identity Navigator

This chapter explains how to configure Oracle Identity Navigator (OIN). It includes the following topics:

15.1 General Prerequisites

The following are the general prerequisites for installing and configuring Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) products:

  1. Installing Oracle Database, as described in Installing Oracle Database.

  2. Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and creating a Middleware Home, as described in Installing Oracle WebLogic Server and Creating the Oracle Middleware Home.

  3. Installing the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.5.0) suite, as described in Installing Oracle Identity and Access Management (11.1.1.5.0). The Oracle Identity and Access Management suite contains Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), Oracle Access Manager (OAM), Oracle Adaptive Access Manager (OAAM), Oracle Entitlements Server (OES), and Oracle Identity Navigator (OIN).

15.2 Installing OIN

Oracle Identity Navigator (OIN) is included in the Oracle Identity and Access Management Suite. You can use the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Installer to install Oracle Identity and Access Management Suite, as described in Installing Oracle Identity and Access Management (11.1.1.5.0).

15.3 Important Notes Before You Begin

Before you start installing and configuring Oracle Identity and Access Management products in any of the scenarios discussed in this chapter, keep the following points in mind:

It is assumed that you are installing Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, and Oracle Identity Navigator on the same machine.

Note:

In this chapter, two IDM_Home directories are mentioned in descriptions and procedures. For example, the first one, IDM_Home can be the IDM_Home directory for Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Directory Services Manager, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, and Oracle Identity Federation. The second one, IAM_Home can be the IDM_Home directory for Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, and Oracle Identity Navigator.

However, note that IDM_Home and IAM_Home are used as examples in this document. You can specify any name for either of your IDM_Home directories. In addition, you can install the two Oracle Identity Management suites (one containing Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Directory Services Manager, Oracle Directory Integration Platform, and Oracle Identity Federation; another containing Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, and Oracle Identity Navigator) in any order on your machine.
