2 Getting Started

This chapter describes the configuration of Oracle Identity Manager and installation of Remote Manager. It contains the following topics:

Overview of Oracle Identity Manager Configuration

To construct adapter tasks, make sure that Oracle Identity Manager has access to the target API jar files and third-party applications to which you want to connect.

When your adapter uses Java tasks, you must configure Oracle Identity Manager to find the appropriate Java APIs. To do this, you need only place the .jar files that contain these APIs, into the JavaTasks sub-folder of the XL_HOME/xellerate folder path—for example, C:\oracle\Xellerate\JavaTasks. Then, you can access the Java classes associated with these Java APIs and use them in the Java task you are creating.

Sometimes, instead of directly communicating with the third-party system, Oracle Identity Manager must use an Oracle Identity Manager component that acts like a proxy. This component is known as Remote Manager.

Remote Manager is used for:

The procedures in the following sections show you how to:

Configuring Oracle Identity Manager to Reference Jar and Class Files

To configure Oracle Identity Manager to reference Jar and class files:

  1. Open the JavaTasks sub-folder, which can be found within the XL_HOME/xellerate folder path—for example, C:\oracle\Xellerate\JavaTasks.

  2. Place the jar file or files into this sub-folder. You can then use these files to create Java tasks within an adapter without restarting the server.

Installing Remote Manager

To configure Remote Manager, you first install the Remote Manager as described in Oracle Identity Manager Installation Guide.

Adding the Trust Relation

To import a trusted certificate, at the command prompt, navigate to the following location:


Enter the command:

JAVA_HOME/jre/bin/keytool -import -file 
XLREMOTE_HOME\xlremote\config\xlserver.cert -keystore cacerts -trustcacerts -
alias rmtrust1 -storepass changeit
