9.8 Assigning the Application Configurator Role to a User

After you complete the installation process, you do not have any users with administrator roles. You must select a user and grant that user the Application Configurator role by using Oracle Identity Navigator.

Note:

For more information, see "Assigning a Common Admin Role" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Navigator.

For information about the Administration Roles that the Application Configurator user can have, see "Administration Role Types" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Privileged Account Manager.

When the Application Configurator user logs in by using the URL mentioned below, the user will see an empty screen with a Configure OPAM link.

http://<adminserver-host>:<adminserver-port>/oinav/opam

The Application Configurator user can use this link to let the Oracle Privileged Account Manager Console know where Oracle Privileged Account Manager server is running by providing the Oracle Privileged Account Manager server's host and port. Oracle Privileged Account Manager server's host and port are the values that you provided for the OPAM Managed Server during OPAM configuration.

When the Oracle Privileged Account Manager Console can successfully communicate with the Oracle Privileged Account Manager server, the Oracle Privileged Account Manager Console will be populated with content.
