3 Registering to Self Service

This chapter discusses the following topics:

3.1 Submitting Registration Requests

Oracle Identity Manager requires you to register yourself with an identity to perform certain tasks on Oracle Identity Self Service or Oracle Identity System Administration.

To register yourself with Oracle Identity Manager:

  1. In the Oracle Identity Self Service login page, click New User Registration. The User Registration page is displayed.

  2. In the Basic Information section, enter first name, middle name, last name, email, common name, and display name in the respective fields.

    Display name is the name of the user displayed in the UI. If not specified, then it is autogenerated while creating the user.

  3. In the Enter User ID and Password section, enter the user login name, password, and confirm password in the respective fields.

  4. In the Select your challenge questions and answers section, select the challenge question and set an answer for each question.

    Note:

    • Challenge questions and answers are asked if the attribute for this is defined in the template for self registration.

    • All Oracle Identity Manager deployments do not support self-registration. This is especially true of internal deployments that manage the identities of employees and contractors, where the identities are added through reconciliation and not self-registration.

  5. Click Register. You are provided a tracking ID for the registration activity that is used for the tracking the registration feature.

3.2 Tracking Registration Requests

You can track your request to register as an identity in Oracle Identity Manager. If the current status indicates success, then you can go to Identity Self Service, and then enter your username and password to log in.

  1. In the Identity Self Service login page, click Track My Registration. The Track Requests page is displayed.

  2. In the Tracking ID field, enter the tracking ID that has been assigned to your registration request. Then click Submit. The registration request status is displayed with the following details:

    • Tracking request ID

    • Request submission date

      When the request is submitted and approval is not done, the date shown is the request submission date. In all cases, the date always reflects the last update date.

    • Current status of the request

      Every self-registration request that is submitted has to go through approvals for it to be processed completely.

      If a user tracks the current status of the request, the status is shown with a description of the stage the request is in. The status would be one of the following:

      • Pending: This state indicates that the request is submitted and the approval is pending. In case of default approval, the following status message is displayed:

        "Obtaining request-level approval for registration. The manager needs to approve this request."

        If the request level approval is pending. Once the request level approval is obtained, the following status message is displayed:

        "Obtaining operation-level approval for registration."

      • Rejected: This state indicates that the request is rejected during approval. The description indicates the reason of rejection. In case of default approval levels, if the request got disapproved at the request approval level, then the following status message is displayed:

        "Request rejected. Please call Help-Desk."

        If the request gets disapproved at the operation level or request level, then the following status message is displayed:

        "Operation approval rejected for registration."

      • Completed: This state indicates that the request is completed. If all the approvals have been provided and the request is successfully completed, the following status message is displayed:

        "Request has been completed."

      • Failed: This state indicates that the request is failed during submission. If the request submission is failed, the following status message is displayed:

        "The request registration failed."

  3. Click Track Another Registration to display the status of another registration request.

    Or, click Back to Login to display the login page.

Note:

You can only track the status of Self Registration Requests from this page.
