|Oracle Identity Analytics System Integrator's Guide 11g Release 1|
Oracle Identity Analytics software and Oracle Waveset software (formerly named Sun Identity Manager) work together seamlessly when integrated using the Service Provisioning Mark-Up Language (SPML). When integrated, Oracle Waveset serves as the automated provisioning and identity synchronization solution, while Oracle Identity Analytics defines the Role-based Access Control (RBAC) framework, the attestation process, and the approach to Segregation Of Duties (SoD) policy enforcement. Rather than assigning individual access entitlements, the RBAC framework allows organizations to assign and unassign roles as a means of controlling user access on various applications.
The Oracle Identity Analytics Identity Warehouse makes it possible for Oracle Identity Analytics to manage users and their identities across various target systems. Before Oracle Identity Analytics features can be utilized, however, the Identity Warehouse of users and their entitlements must be built. If Oracle Waveset is already in use, building the Identity Warehouse is as easy as connecting to Oracle Waveset and importing the user entitlement information that is stored in the Oracle Waveset repository. Roles are then assigned to users, either based on their actual entitlements or business-level attributes. These roles can be exported to Oracle Waveset for user management and provisioning purposes. Additionally, revocations made during the certification campaigns can also be sent from Oracle Identity Analytics to Oracle Waveset so that remediation can take place.
Refer to the Oracle Identity Analytics 11gR1 User's Guide for explanations of attributes, attribute categories, resource types, and other concepts.
