Integrate with Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS)

You can establish a connection between Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS) and Oracle Access Governance by entering connection details and configuring the connector. To achieve this, use the Connected Systems functionality available in the Oracle Access Governance Console.

Preinstall

Before you install and configure a Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS) connected system, you should consider the following pre-requisites and tasks.

Certified Components

The target system can be any one of the following:

  • Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.1 through 12.1.3
  • Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.x
These applications may run on Oracle Database 10g, 11g, 12c, or 19c as either single database or Oracle RAC implementation.

Note:

If your target system is running on Oracle Database release 19.x, then download and apply the Oracle Database patch 31142749 from My Oracle Support. Applying this patch ensures that provisioning operations work fine.

Supported Connector Operations

The Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS) connected system supports the following connector operations:
  • User Management
    • Create person
  • Entitlement Grant Management
    • Add address
    • Update address
    • Delete address
    • Add assignment
    • Update assignment
    • Delete assignment

Create a Target System User Account for Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS) Connected System Operations

Oracle Access Governance requires a user account to access the target system during reconcilloation operations. Depending on the target system you are using, you can create the user in your target system and assign specific permissions and roles to the user.

For Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation (HRMS):

  1. Download all the files present inside this https://github.com/oracle/docker-images/tree/main/OracleIdentityGovernance/samples/scripts/Oracle_EBS_HRMS/1.0 location and copy them to a temporary directory on either the target system host computer or a computer on which the Oracle Database Client has been installed.
    Alternatively, you can run the following steps to get the scripts:
    1. wget https://github.com/oracle/docker-images/archive/refs/heads/main.zip
    2. unzip main.zip
    3. cp docker-images-main/OracleIdentityGovernance/samples/scripts/Oracle_EBS_HRMS/1.0/* TEMP_DIR

      Where TEMP_DIR is a temporary directory on either the target system host computer or a computer on which the Oracle Database Client has been installed.

  2. On the computer where you copy the scripts directory, verify that there is a TNS entry in the tnsnames.ora file for the target system database.
  3. Change to the directory containing the scripts directory and depending on the host platform, run either the Run_HRMS_DBScripts.sh or Run_HRMS_DBScripts.bat file. These files are present in this https://github.com/oracle/docker-images/tree/main/OracleIdentityGovernance/samples/scripts/Oracle_EBS_HRMS/1.0 location.
  4. When you run the script, you are prompted for the following information:
    • Enter the ORACLE_HOME

      Set a value for the ORACLE_HOME environment variable. This prompt is displayed only if the ORACLE_HOME environment variable has not been set on the computer on which you are running the script.

    • Enter the System User Name

      Enter the login (user name) of a DBA account with the privileges to create and configure a new target system user.

    • Enter the name of the database

      Enter the connection string or service name given in the tnsnames.ora file to connect to the target system database.

    • Would you like to create new user for connector operations [y/n]

      Enter y or n to specify whether you want to create a new user for connector operations.

      This connects you the SQL*Plus client.

    • Are you running this script with EBS target 12.1.x [y/n]

      Enter y if you are using Oracle E-Business Suite release 12.1.1 through 12.1.3. When you do so, version compatible scripts will run on your target system.

      Enter n if you are using Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.x and later versions.

    • Enter password

      Enter the password for the Oracle database login. If you entered n at the earlier prompt to create a new user for connector operations, then the Type and Package are created, and then the connection to the database is disconnected. If you entered y, then the Type and Package are created, and then the connection to the database remains.

    • Enter password

      Enter the password of the dba user.

    • Enter New database Username to be created

      Enter a user name for the target system account that you want to create.

    • Enter the New user password

      Enter a password for the target system account that you want to create.

      This installs all wrappers packages under the APPS schema, creates the new target system account, and then grants all the required privileges on the tables and packages.

    • Connecting with newly created database user

      Enter the connection string or service name that you provided earlier.

    • Enter the hostname for network acl [Input will be ignored If DB version is earlier than 11g]

      Enter the name of the computer hosting network acl in the following format:

      *.DOMAIN_NAME.com

      This prompt is received only if you entered y at one of the earlier prompts to create a new user for connector operations.
