This chapter explains how to configure Oracle Identity Navigator. It includes the following topics:
Before you start installing and configuring Oracle Identity and Access Management products in any of the scenarios discussed in this chapter, note that IAM_Home is used to refer to the Oracle Home directory that includes Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, and Oracle Identity Navigator. You can specify any name for this Oracle Home directory.
This topic describes how to configure only Oracle Identity Navigator in a new WebLogic administration domain. It includes the following sections:
Perform the configuration in this topic if you want to configure Oracle Identity Navigator with Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Access Manager, 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 Manager, 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.
Performing the configuration in this section deploys the Oracle Identity Navigator application on a new WebLogic Administration Server.
The configuration in this section depends on the following:
Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.6) or Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1 (10.3.5).
Installation of the Oracle Identity and Access Management 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0) software.
Perform the following steps to configure only Oracle Identity Navigator in a new WebLogic administration domain:
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.
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 Manager, Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle Entitlements Server, and Oracle Identity Navigator.
On the Welcome screen, select Create a new WebLogic domain, and click Next. The Select Domain Source screen appears.
On the Select Domain Source screen, ensure that the Generate a domain configured automatically to support the following products: option is selected. Create a WebLogic administration domain, which supports Oracle Identity Navigator (choose Oracle Identity Navigator - 18.104.22.168.0 [Oracle_IDM2]), and click Next. The Specify Domain Name and Location screen appears.
When you select the Oracle Identity Navigator - 22.214.171.124.0 [Oracle_IDM2] check box, the Oracle JRF 126.96.36.199 [oracle_common] option is also selected, by default.
Enter a name and a location for the domain to be created, and click Next. The Configure Administrator User Name and Password screen appears.
Configure a user name and a password for the administrator. The default user name is
weblogic. Click Next.
The Configure Server Start Mode and JDK screen appears. Choose a JDK from the Available JDKs and select a WebLogic Domain Startup Mode. Click Next.
On the Select Optional Configuration screen, you can configure Administration Server and Managed Servers, Clusters, and Machines, Deployments and Services, and RDBMS Security Store options. Click Next.
Optional: Configure the following Administration Server parameters:
SSL listen port
SSL enabled or disabled
Optional: Configure Managed Servers, as required.
Optional: Configure Clusters, as required.
For more information about configuring clusters for Oracle Identity and Access Management products, see the "Configuring High Availability for Identity Management Components" topic in the guide Oracle Fusion Middleware High Availability Guide.
Optional: Assign Managed Servers to clusters, as required.
Optional: Configure Machines, as needed. This step is useful when you want to run the Administration Server on one machine and Managed Servers on another physical machine.
Before configuring a machine, use the
ping command to verify whether the machine or host name is accessible.
Optional: Assign the Administration Server to a machine.
Optional: Select Deployments, such as applications and libraries, and Services to target them to a particular cluster or server.
Optional: Configure RDBMS Security Store, as required.
On the Configuration Summary screen, you can view summaries of your configuration for deployments, application, and service. Review the domain configuration, and click Create to start creating the domain.
A new WebLogic domain to support Oracle Identity Navigator is created in the
<MW_HOME>\user_projects\domains directory (on Windows). On UNIX, the domain is created in the
After installing and configuring Oracle Identity Navigator, you must run the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server and various Managed Servers, as described in Appendix C, "Starting the Stack".
