Software Updates in Release 11.1.1.5.0

This is the first release of the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for PeopleSoft User Management based on Identity Connector Framework (ICF). The following software updates have been made in release 11.1.1.5.0:

ICF Based Connector

The Identity Connector Framework (ICF) is a component that provides basic provisioning, reconciliation, and other functions that all Oracle Identity Manager connectors require.

The Oracle Identity Manager Connector for PeopleSoft User Management is an ICF-based connector. The ICF uses classpath isolation, which allows the connector to co-exist with legacy versions of the connector.

For more information about the ICF, see Understanding the Identity Connector Framework in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developing and Customizing Applications for Oracle Identity Manager.

Simplified PeopleSoft Listener Deployment

This release of the connector has a simplified process to deploy the PeopleSoft Listener compared to previous releases. The deployment is simplified using a new deployment tool. See Deploying the PeopleSoft Listener for more information.

Support for Addition of Custom Attributes and ID Types

The PeopleSoft User Management connector supports the addition of custom attributes and ID types for provisioning and reconciliation. See the following sections for more information:

Support for Custom Component Interfaces

The PeopleSoft User Management connector supports the addition of custom component interfaces. Component interface definitions are assigned in the PeopleSoft Component Interface configuration objects. You can modify or add custom definitions by editing a copy of the PeopleSoftComponentInterfaces.xml file located in the xml directory of the connector package.

See Connector Component Interfaces for the PeopleSoft User Management for more information.

Support for Configuring the Connector for Multiple Target System Versions

From this release onward, you can configure the connector for target system installations of different versions. See Configuring the Connector to Support Multiple Versions of the Target System for more information.

Support for Segregation of Duties (SoD)

The PeopleSoft user profile has roles that can be treated as entitlements. In such cases, the segregation of duties (SoD) features supported by Oracle Identity Manager can be used. See Configuring SoD on Oracle Identity Manager for more information.

Support for Connection Pooling

This release of the connector supports the connection pooling feature based on the ICF. In earlier releases, a connection with the target system was established at the start of a reconciliation run and closed at the end of the reconciliation run. With the introduction of connection pooling, multiple connections are established by the ICF and held in reserve for use by the connector.

New Lookup Definitions

This release of the connector has new lookup definitions. See Lookup Definitions Used During Connector Operations for more information.

Deployment Using Connector Server

This release of the connector can be deployed using the Connector Server, which is included with the ICF. See Installation on Oracle Identity Manager for more information.

Enhanced Logging

This release of the connector uses the logging feature included in the ICF. See Enabling Logging for more information.
