What Changed for OCSS?

Oracle recently made new features and capabilities available for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity (OCI) and Identity Domain service. As part of the upgraded service, Oracle merged all features and functionality of the existing Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) into OCI Identity Domain.

OCI Identity Domain supports the following core functions:
  • OCI Identity Domain continues to serve as the critical access control plane for Oracle® Communications Security Shield (OCSS).
  • OCI Identity Domain supports a wide range of enterprise Identity Domain use cases for complex, hybrid IT environments.
  • OCI Identity Domain provides a developer-friendly Identity Domain engine for custom and consumer applications.

Identity Domain is also flexible enough to handle a wide variety of Identity Domain use cases across employee, partner, and consumer scenarios.

The updated OCI Identity Domain service introduces Identity Domains. Oracle will migrate your existing IDCS instances, called stripes, to Identity Domain instances. Existing OCSS customer will see their access to IDCS portal diverted to Identity Domain. No changes are required to applications, users, or groups in domains that formerly existed as IDCS instances or to local users in OCI tenancies. See Identity Domains.

Identity Domain characteristics include:
  • Each OCI Identity Domain represents a stand-alone identity and access management solution.
  • Each identity domain represents a different user population, but certain use cases may require users to exist in multiple domains.
  • Identity domains each use their own settings, configurations, and security policies to ensure optimal security.
  • OCI Identity Domain is an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solution with the flexibility to cover virtually any Identity Domain use cases across employees, partners, and consumers.
