|Oracle Identity Analytics Business Administrator's Guide 11g Release 1|
Oracle Identity Analytics provides a scheduler that enables you to set a specific time for imports and exports. You can schedule import and export jobs using the scheduler in the user interface (the UI-based scheduler), or you can schedule jobs by hand-editing configuration files.
Note - Before you can import data into Oracle Identity Analytics, you need to configure a provisioning server. For more information, see Provisioning Servers Configuration in the Oracle Identity Analytics Configuration chapter.
This section discusses how to schedule an import and export job using the user interface. For instructions on how to schedule an import and export job by editing the configuration files, see the Scheduling a Job by Editing Configuration Files section.
Log in to Oracle Identity Analytics as an administrator.
Choose Administration > Configuration.
Click Schedule Job.
Click a job type (for example, Import Users) to select it.
The Data Selection Source page opens.
Select a data selection source from the list of provisioning servers.
It is important to select the correct server type from the drop-down menu.
The File Server option is a standard option that you can use to specify a flat file data import or export, for example, a CSV or XML file type.
Type a name and description for the job.
Select Run Now to run the job immediately, or clear this option and enter the required job scheduling information.
Click Finish to create the job.
Note - Each resource type has at least one resource. Therefore, it is important to select the correct resource if performing an entitlement import or export.
You do not need to specify resource type or resource information for certain kinds of imports and exports. Specifically, role imports and exports as well as users imports and exports do not require this information.
