4.3 Configuring Oracle Identity Navigator in a New WebLogic Domain

This topic describes how to configure only Oracle Identity Navigator in a new WebLogic administration domain. It includes the following sections:

4.3.1 Appropriate Deployment Environment

Perform the configuration in this topic if you want to configure Oracle Identity Navigator with Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Management, and Oracle Adaptive Access Manager in a new WebLogic domain and then run the Oracle Identity Navigator discovery feature. This feature populates links to the product consoles for Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Management, and Oracle Adaptive Access Manager. You can then access those product consoles from within the Oracle Identity Navigator interface, without having to remember the individual console URLs.

4.3.2 Components Deployed

Performing the configuration in this section deploys the Oracle Identity Navigator application on a new WebLogic Administration Server.

4.3.3 Dependencies

The configuration in this section depends on the following:

4.3.4 Procedure

Perform the following steps to configure only Oracle Identity Navigator in a new WebLogic administration domain:

  1. Start the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard by running the <IAM_Home>/common/bin/config.sh script (on UNIX), or <IAM_Home>\common\bin\config.cmd (on Windows).

    The Welcome screen of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard appears.

    Note:

    IAM_Home is used as an example here. You must run this script from your Oracle Identity and Access Management Home directory that contains Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Management, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, Oracle Identity Navigator, Oracle Privileged Account Manager, and Oracle Access Management Mobile and Social.

  2. On the Welcome screen, select Create a new WebLogic domain, and click Next. The Select Domain Source screen appears.

  3. On the Select Domain Source screen ensure that the Generate a domain configured automatically to support the following products: option is selected. Select Oracle Identity Navigator - 11.1.2.0.0 [IAM_Home], and click Next. The Specify Domain Name and Location screen appears.

    Note:

    When you select the Oracle Identity Navigator - 11.1.2.0.0 [IAM_Home] option, the following options are also selected, by default:

    • Oracle Platform Security Service 11.1.1.0 [IAM_Home]

    • Oracle JRF 11.1.1.0 [oracle_common]

  4. Enter a name and a location for the domain to be created, and click Next. The Configure Administrator User Name and Password screen appears.

  5. Configure a user name and a password for the administrator. The default user name is weblogic. Click Next.

  6. Choose a JDK and Production Mode in the Configure Server Start Mode and JDK screen of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard. Click Next. The Configure JDBC Component Schema screen is displayed.

  7. On the Configure JDBC Component Schema screen, select a component schema, such as the OPSS Schema that you want to modify.

    You can set values for Schema Owner, Schema Password, Database and Service, Host Name, and Port. Click Next. The Test JDBC Component Schema screen appears. After the test succeeds, click Next. The Select Optional Configuration screen appears.
