This figure conceptually illustrates a three-step process of how an application is synchronously provisioned from the Oracle Internet Directory Self-Service Console, bulk provisioning with the Directory Integration and Provisioning Assistant, and from third-party directories. The first step illustrates a new user entry being created in Oracle Internet Directory by showing an arrow pointing from three boxes that represent each of the creation components to a box representing Oracle Internet Directory. The second step illustrates the components invoking the Data Access plug-in by showing an arrow pointing from the three component boxes to a graphical element representing the Data Access plug-in. The third step illustrates the Data Access Java plug-in provisioning a new user account in an application by showing an arrow that points from the Data Access Java plug-in graphical element to a box representing the provisioning-integrated application.
