F Globalization Support

This chapter provides information on customizing Oracle Adaptive Access Manager for your locale.

F.1 Supported Languages

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager 11g is translated into 9 Admin languages for OAAM Admin and 26 languages for OAAM Server. These translations are bundled along with the English version of the product.

The languages and their locale identifiers (in parentheses) are listed below. A locale identifier consists of at least a language identifier, and a region identifier (if required).

OAAM Admin is translated into French (fr), German (de), Italian (it), Spanish (es), Brazilian Portuguese (pt_br), Japanese (ja), Korean (ko), Simplified Chinese (zh_cn), and Traditional Chinese (zh_tw).

When one of the non-OAAM Admin locale languages is set in the browser (for example Arabic), OAAM Admin uses the default locale, English. When one of the non-standard runtime locale languages is set in the browser, OAAM Server uses the default locale, English.

OAAM Server is translated into 26 languages: French (fr), German (de), Italian (it), Spanish (es), Brazilian Portuguese (pt_br), Japanese (ja), Korean (ko), Simplified Chinese (zh_cn), Traditional Chinese (zh_tw) Arabic (ar), Czech (cs), Danish (da), Dutch (nl), Finnish (fi), Greek (el), Hebrew (iw), Hungarian (hu), Norwegian (no), Polish (pl), Portuguese (pt), Romanian (ro), Russian (ru), Slovak (sk), Swedish (sv), Thai (th), and Turkish (tr).

F.2 Dashboard

The Oracle Adaptive Access Manager Dashboard is an application that provides a high-level view of real monitor data. Monitor data is a representative sample of data. It presents a real-time view of activity via aggregates and trending.

To view the Dashboard in the language you want, set your browser's language preference to the appropriate language.

All data viewed in the Dashboard is based on the time zone of the server. This means that any data generated by OAAM is governed by the time zone of the server, and not the user time zone, but the information is presented per your browser settings. For information on setting the time zone, refer to Section 2.9, "Setting the Time Zone Used for All Time Stamps in the OAAM Administration Console."

For more information on the dashboard, refer to Chapter 23, "Monitoring OAAM Administrative Functions and Performance."

F.3 Knowledge Based Authentication

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager provides out-of-the-box secondary authentication in the form of knowledge based authentication (KBA). KBA provides an infrastructure for challenge question creation and logic algorithm for registration and answers. This section contains information customizing certain KBA user experiences.

F.3.1 Answer Logic Phonetics Algorithms

Answers that "sound like" the registered answer, regional spelling differences, and common misspellings are handled by the phonetics algorithm.

For information on customization, see Customizing English Abbreviations and Equivalences in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Adaptive Access Manager.

The phonetics algorithm is only supported in English.

F.3.2 Keyboard Fat Fingering

Oracle's Fat Fingering algorithm accounts for typos due to the proximity of keys on a standard keyboard and transposed letters. Answers with typos due to the proximity of keys on a standard keyboard are handled by the fat fingering algorithm.

The fat fingering algorithm is only supported in English.

F.3.3 Adding Registration Questions

The deployment administrator must ensure that there are enough questions in the database for each of the supported locale as configured in OAAM Admin during deployment; otherwise, OAAM Server displays only the English language questions during registration.

The number of locale-specific questions must be equal to or greater than the "Questions User Will Register" multiplied by the "Questions per Menu" multiplied by the "Categories per Menu."

For information on adding registration questions, refer to Section 7.5.3, "Creating a New Question."
