There are two administration guides for Oracle Access Manager. This book, Oracle Access Manager Identity and Common Administration Guide, provides information on configuring Oracle Access Manager to read and make use of data in your directory, configuring Identity applications to display directory data, assigning read and write permissions to users, and defining workflows that link together Identity application functions into a sequence of automatically initiated steps. This guide also describes functionality that is common to both the Access System and Identity System. Common functionality includes configuring directory servers and password policies.


Oracle Access Manager was previously known as Oblix NetPoint. Some items, such as schema objects, paths, and so on might still use the term "oblix" or "NetPoint."

This Preface covers the following topics:


This guide is intended for the administrators assigned during Oracle Access Manager installation and setup, and Master Identity Administrators and Delegated Identity Administrators. Administrators configure the rights and tasks available to other administrators and end users. A Master Administrator, the highest level administrator, is selected during Identity System setup. This administrator delegates responsibilities to other administrators, as described in this book.

This document assumes that you are familiar with your LDAP directory and Web servers.
