Writing Correlation Rules

Correlation rules are defined in the schema (.rbx) files under the Oracle Identity Analytics schema folder.

A correlation rule checks if the global user field matches an account field. The left side of the rule (before the = sign) is associated with the global user, and the right side of the role is associated with the account. For example, $globalUser.userName=$account.userName.

When creating data correlation rules, remember the following:

For example, suppose the following rules are configured:

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.FirstName=$account.FirstName"

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.LastName=$account.LastName"

An account has the following attributes: FirstName="John", LastName="Cook".

When evaluating the first rule, Oracle Identity Analytics might find many global users with "John" as FirstName, but when it evaluates the second rule and the intersection is made, only one global user meets both rules.


Following is an example of a schema file with multiple correlation rules:


# @iam:namespace name="Summarization" shortName="SUM"

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.userName=$account.userName"

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.FirstName=$account.FirstName"

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.LastName=$account.LastName"

# @IdentityCorrelationRule 

# @IdentityCorrelationRule rule="$globalUser.userName=[defaultuser]"

MiddleName, LastName

Note - The correlation method used in previous versions of Oracle Identity Analytics using the <correlationkey> tag also works with Oracle Identity Analytics, so you do not need to change the old schema files.
