10 Managing Tasks

In Oracle Identity Self Service, you can view task instances of specific types. These types are associated with specific Oracle Identity Manager components. The task types are approval, provisioning, and attestation tasks.

The approval tasks can be viewed and managed from the Pending Approvals section of Identity Self Service. These tasks are instantiated by request service and correspond to associated requests that are in the user or administrator's queue to be approved.

The provisioning tasks can be viewed and managed from the Open Tasks section of Identity Self Service. These tasks correspond to tasks instantiated by requests, or pending manual provisioning tasks, or failed automatic provisioning tasks in the user or administrator's queue.

The attestation tasks can be viewed and managed from the Pending Attestations section of Identity Self Service. These tasks correspond to outstanding attestation process in the user or administrator's queue.

These approval, provisioning, and attestation tasks can be used by both administrators and end-users. For example, an IT department personnel responsible for delivering a laptop to an employee may not be an Oracle Identity Manager administrator, but needs to view and change provisioning tasks.

Note:

Only approval tasks are fetched from Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Server and rest of the tasks come from Oracle Identity Manager.

This chapter contains the following topics:

10.1 Managing Approval Tasks

Oracle Identity Manager request service interacts with SOA Server to handle various aspects of human interaction in Oracle Identity Manager workflows. This request service is used to assign tasks to roles and users. You can perform various operations upon tasks assigned to you. For example, you can approve, reject, or claim a task, or request for more information. The process flow in corresponding Oracle Identity Manager workflow is dependent on the outcome of given tasks.

See Also:

"Developing Workflows for Approval and Manual Provisioning" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle Identity Manager for information about approval workflows

When a request is submitted, the request service initiates the approval as a task in Oracle SOA Server. This task is assigned to the approver. Further processing of this request by request service remains pending, which is subject to the outcome of the corresponding task. The approver must be able to access the Pending Approvals section that lists all the tasks assigned to the approver. The approver can now act upon this task and set its outcome, for example, approve or reject. After the task outcome has been set, the request service resumes the processing of the request that is based on the task outcome.

On successful submission of requests, the request service creates Human Tasks in SOA and assigns them to users or roles in Oracle Identity Manager. Authenticated users can view the tasks waiting for action in the Pending Approvals section.

This section describes some of the task actions you can perform in the Pending Approvals section:

Note:

The features related to performing task actions in the Pending Approvals section are provided by Oracle SOA. For detailed information about the task actions, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

10.1.3 Viewing Task Details

When you click the request title link of any of the approval tasks in any of the tabs in the Pending Approvals section, task details are shown for that approval task in a new browser window.

The task details page displays a detailed view of the request in the Summary Information section, the Request Details tab, the Approvals tab, and the Cart Details section. It allows complete management of the listed task.

In the Cart Details section, the approver can provide data, without which (if the field is marked as mandatory) the approver will not be allowed to approve a request. For example, when an approver opens a task related to self-registration request, the organization field is marked as mandatory, but no value is specified for this field by the requester. Therefore, the approver must specify a value for this mandatory field.

In the next level of approval, the approver can modify the data, if required. Similarly, if the approver sends the task to another user for more information (using the Request Information operation), then the user to whom it is assigned can see an additional section called "Additional Request Information" in Task details and the user can send a response to the information requested.

In addition, the following tabs display details associated to the request:

  • Request Details: This tab displays the target users or beneficiary information, and related requests, if any.

  • Approvals: The complete approval flow with all approvers. You can select the Future participants option to display the next level approvers. You can select the Full task actions option to display all the approvals for the task.

The various operation that you can perform in the task details page are described in the subsequent sections.

10.1.4 Adding Comments and Attachments

After you view the task details, you can add comments and attachments prior to performing any operation on the task such as approving, rejecting, or reassigning the request. An attachment can either be a hyperlink or an actual file. It is recommended that the size of the file attachment that you upload be less than 2 MB. If you want to upload file attachments of size greater than 2 MB, then you must change the ADF configuration and increase the size limit. For more details, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Fusion Developer's Guide for Oracle Application Development Framework.

10.2 Managing Provisioning Tasks

This Open Tasks section of the Identity Self Service displays all provisioning tasks assigned to you or pending actions in your inbox. In addition, failed automatic provisioning tasks that you must review to take corrective action are displayed in your inbox. You must take corrective action, such as retry and manually complete, on those tasks.

The provisioning tasks feature is used by administrators as well as users. For example, the person in IT administration who is responsible for delivering a laptop computer to an employee may not be an administrator in Oracle Identity Manager, but must view and change provisioning tasks.

A provisioning operation such as creating or updating an account, or granting or revoking an entitlement can fail due to one of the following reasons:

When a provisioning operation fails, you can configure the provisioning workflow to assign the failed task to an administrator or resource owner for taking an action. These tasks are visible in the Open Tasks page under the Administration region. When you click Open Tasks, all tasks assigned to you for remediation are displayed. In this page, you can perform actions such as viewing the details of a rejected task and retrying it. If the task is no longer valid, you can manually complete it.

You can perform the following tasks in the Provisioning tab:

10.2.1 Searching Provisioning Tasks

10.3 Managing Attestation Tasks

Attestation enables users designated as reviewers to be notified of reports they must review. These reports describe provisioned resources of other users. A reviewer can attest to the accuracy of the entitlements by providing a response. The attestation action, along with the response the reviewer provides, any associated comments, and an audit view of the data that the reviewer views and attests to, is tracked and audited to provide a complete trail of accountability. In Oracle Identity Manager, this process is known as an attestation task.

An attestation process is the mechanism by which an attestation task is set up. Input that an attestation process requires includes information about how to define the components that constitute the attestation task and how to associate the attestation task with a schedule at which the task must be run. This definition is also the basis on which the attestation task can be initiated when required.

The Pending Attestations section in Identity Self Service displays all attestation processes assigned to you or pending your actions in your inbox.

Note:

Using Oracle Identity Manager integrated with Oracle Identity Analytics (OIA) replaces the attestation functionality.

You can perform the following tasks in the Pending Attestations section:
