Add Oracle Access Manager/Oracle Internet Directory

"name": "Idm Domain",

Step 2: Add the Oracle Access Manager/Oracle Internet Directory using omcli and the Appropriate JSON Files

  1. Download and extract the required JSON file(s) from the master JSON zip file. See the table below for the specific JSON files you'll need.
  2. Edit the file(s) and specify the requisite properties shown below.
