The configuration steps presented here assume that you have completed the installation steps covered in:

Refer to the following sections to create the database schemas, configure a WebLogic domain, and verify the configuration:

Creating the Database Schemas

Before you can configure a domain, you must install required schemas on a certified database for use with this release of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Installing and Configuring a Certified Database

Before you create the database schemas, you must install and configure a certified database, and verify that the database is up and running.

Starting the Repository Creation Utility

Start the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) after you verify that a certified JDK is installed on your system.

To start the RCU:

  1. Verify that a certified JDK already exists on your system by running java -version from the command line. For 12c (12.2.1.4.0), the certified JDK is 1.8.0_211 and later.
  2. Ensure that the JAVA_HOME environment variable is set to the location of the certified JDK. For example:
    • (UNIX) setenv JAVA_HOME /home/Oracle/Java/jdk1.8.0_211
    • (Windows) set JAVA_HOME=C:\home\Oracle\Java\jdk1.8.0_211
  3. Change to the following directory:
    • (UNIX) ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin
    • (Windows) ORACLE_HOME\oracle_common\bin
  4. Enter the following command:
    • (UNIX) ./rcu
    • (Windows) rcu.bat
Navigating the Repository Creation Utility Screens to Create Schemas

Enter required information in the RCU screens to create the database schemas.

Introducing the RCU

The Welcome screen is the first screen that appears when you start the RCU.

Click Next.

Selecting a Method of Schema Creation

Use the Create Repository screen to select a method to create and load component schemas into the database.

On the Create Repository screen:
  • If you have the necessary permissions and privileges to perform DBA activities on your database, select System Load and Product Load. This procedure assumes that you have SYSDBA privileges.

  • If you do not have the necessary permissions or privileges to perform DBA activities in the database, you must select Prepare Scripts for System Load on this screen. This option generates a SQL script that you can give to your database administrator. See About System Load and Product Load in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

  • If the DBA has already run the SQL script for System Load, select Perform Product Load.

Providing Database Connection Details

On the Database Connection Details screen, provide the database connection details for the RCU to connect to your database.

Note:

If you are unsure of the service name for your database, you can obtain it from the SERVICE_NAMES parameter in the initialization parameter file of the database. If the initialization parameter file does not contain the SERVICE_NAMES parameter, then the service name is the same as the global database name, which is specified in the DB_NAME and DB_DOMAIN parameters.

For example:

  • Database Type: Oracle Database
  • Connection String Format: Either one of the format one can select
  • If you choose connection parameter, fill the following details:
    • Host Name: examplehost.exampledomain.com
    • Port: 1521
    • Service Name: Orcl.exampledomain.com
    • User Name: sys
    • Password: ******
    • Role: SYSDBA
  • If you choose connection string, fill the following details:
    • Connection String: examplehost.exampledomain.com:1521:Orcl.exampledomain.com
    • User Name: sys
    • Password: ******
    • Role: SYSDBA

Click Next to proceed, then click OK in the dialog window that confirms a successful database connection.

Specifying a Custom Prefix and Selecting Schemas

Select Create new prefix, specify a custom prefix, then expand IDM Schemas and select the Oracle Access Manager schema. This action automatically selects the following schemas as dependencies:

  • Common Infrastructure Services (STB)

  • Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS)

  • Audit Services (IAU)

  • Audit Services Append (IAU_Append)

  • Audit Services Viewer (IAU_Viewer)

  • Metadata Services (MDS)

  • WebLogic Services (WLS)

The schema Common Infrastructure Services (STB) is automatically created. This schema is dimmed; you cannot select or deselect it. This schema enables you to retrieve information from RCU during domain configuration. For more information, see "Understanding the Service Table Schema" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

The custom prefix is used to logically group these schemas together for use in this domain only; you must create a unique set of schemas for each domain. Schema sharing across domains is not supported.

Tip:

For more information about custom prefixes, see "Understanding Custom Prefixes" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

For more information about how to organize your schemas in a multi-domain environment, see "Planning Your Schema Creation" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

Tip:

You must make a note of the custom prefix you choose to enter here; you will need this later on during the domain creation process.

Click Next to proceed, then click OK on the dialog window confirming that prerequisite checking for schema creation was successful.

Specifying Schema Passwords

On the Schema Passwords screen, specify how you want to set the schema passwords on your database, then enter and confirm your passwords.

You must make a note of the passwords you set on this screen; you will need them later on during the domain creation process.

Click Next.

Completing Schema Creation

Navigate through the remaining RCU screens to complete schema creation.

On the Map Tablespaces screen, the Encrypt Tablespace check box appears only if you enabled Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) in the database (Oracle or Oracle EBR) when you start the RCU. Select the Encrypt Tablespace check box if you want to encrypt all new tablespaces that the RCU creates.

When you reach the Completion Summary screen, click Close to dismiss the RCU.

For more about Node Manager types, see Node Manager Overview in Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.

Configuring Managed Servers for Oracle Access Management

On the Managed Servers screen, the new Managed Servers named oam_server_1 and oam_policy_mgr1 are displayed:

  1. In the Listen Address drop-down list, select the IP address of the host on which the Managed Server will reside or use the system name or DNS name that maps to a single IP address. Do not use "All Local Addresses."
  2. In the Server Groups drop-down list, select the server group for your managed server. By default, OAM-MGD-SVRS is selected for oam_server1 and OAM-POLICY-MANAGED-SERVER is selected for oam_policy_mgr1.

    Server groups target Fusion Middleware applications and services to one or more servers by mapping defined application service groups to each defined server group. A given application service group may be mapped to multiple server groups if needed. Any application services that are mapped to a given server group are automatically targeted to all servers that are assigned to that group. For more information, see "Application Service Groups, Server Groups, and Application Service Mappings" in Domain Template Reference.

  3. Configuring a second Managed Server is one of the steps needed to configure the standard topology for high availability. If you are not creating a highly available environment, then this step is optional.
    Click Clone and repeat this process to create a second Managed Server named oam_policy_mgr2.

    Note:

    If you wish to configure additional Managed Servers, use the Clone option and add the Managed Server. For example, if we want to configure oam_server2, click Clone and select oam_server1 to clone this server. Do not use the add option to add a new Managed Server.

    Configuring a second Managed Server is one of the steps needed to configure the standard topology for high availability. If you are not creating a highly available environment, then this step is optional.

    For more information about the high availability standard topology, see "Understanding the Fusion Middleware Standard HA Topology" in High Availability Guide.

    For more information about the next steps to prepare for high availability after your domain is configured, see Preparing Your Environment for High Availability.

These server names and will be referenced throughout this document; if you choose different names be sure to replace them as needed.

Tip:

More information about the options on this screen can be found in Managed Servers in Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

Configuring a Cluster for Oracle Access Management

Use the Clusters screen to create a new cluster.

Note:

If you are configuring a non-clustered setup on a single node, skip this screen.

On the Clusters screen:

  1. Click Add.
  2. Specify oam_cluster_1 in the Cluster Name field for oam_server. For oam_policy_mgr server, you must create another cluster, for example, oam_policy_cluster.
  3. For the Cluster Address field, specify the ipaddress/hostname:port. For example:
    ip_address_machine1:portnumber,ip_address_machine2:portnumber

By default, server instances in a cluster communicate with one another using unicast. If you want to change your cluster communications to use multicast, see Considerations for Choosing Unicast or Multicast in Administering Clusters for Oracle WebLogic Server.

You can also create clusters using Fusion Middleware Control. In this case, you can configure cluster communication (unicast or multicast) when you create the new cluster. See Create and configure clusters in Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

For more information about this screen, see Clusters in Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

Defining Server Templates

If you are creating dynamic clusters for a high availability setup, use the Server Templates screen to define one or more server templates for domain.

To continue configuring the domain, click Next.

For steps to create a dynamic cluster for a high availability setup, see Using Dynamic Clusters in High Availability Guide.

Configuring Dynamic Servers

You can skip this screen for Oracle Access Management configuration.

Click Next and proceed.
Assigning Oracle Access Management Managed Servers to the Cluster

If you are configuring a non-clustered setup, click Next and go to next screen. Use the Assign Servers to Clusters screen to assign Managed Servers to a new configured cluster. A configured cluster is a cluster you configure manually. You do not use this screen if you are configuring a dynamic cluster, a cluster that contains one or more generated server instances that are based on a server template.

For more on configured cluster and dynamic cluster terms, see About Dynamic Clusters in Understanding Oracle WebLogic Server.

On the Assign Servers to Clusters screen:

  1. In the Clusters pane, select the cluster to which you want to assign the Managed Servers; in this case, oam_cluster_1.
  2. In the Servers pane, assign oam_server_1 to oam_cluster_1 by doing one of the following:
    • Click once on oam_server_1 to select it, then click the right arrow to move it beneath the selected cluster (oam_cluster_1) in the Clusters pane.

    • Double-click on oam_server_1 to move it beneath the selected cluster (oam_cluster_1) in the Clusters pane.

  3. Repeat to assign oam_policy_mgr to oam_policy_cluster.

For more information about this screen, see Assign Servers to Clusters in Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

Configuring Coherence Clusters

Use the Coherence Clusters screen to configure the Coherence cluster.

Leave the default port number as the Coherence cluster listen port. After configuration, the Coherence cluster is automatically added to the domain.

Note:

Setting the unicast listen port to 0 creates an offset for the Managed Server port numbers. The offset is 5000, meaning the maximum allowed value that you can assign to a Managed Server port number is 60535, instead of 65535.

See Table 5-2 for more information and next steps for configuring Coherence.

For Coherence licensing information, see Oracle Coherence Products in Licensing Information.

Creating a New Oracle Access Management Machine

Use the Machines screen to create new machines in the domain. A machine is required so that Node Manager can start and stop servers.

If you plan to create a high availability environment and know the list of machines your target topology requires, you can follow the instructions in this section to create all the machines at this time. For more about scale out steps, see Optional Scale Out Procedure in High Availability Guide.

To create a new Oracle Access Management machine so that Node Manager can start and stop servers:
  1. Select the Machine tab (for Windows) or the UNIX Machine tab (for UNIX), then click Add to create a new machine.
  2. In the Name field, specify a machine name, such as oam_machine_1.
  3. In the Node Manager Listen Address field, select the IP address of the machine in which the Managed Servers are being configured.

    You must select a specific interface and not localhost. This allows Coherence cluster addresses to be dynamically calculated.

  4. Verify the port in the Node Manager Listen Port field.
  5. Repeat these steps to add more machines, if required.

Note:

If you are extending an existing domain, you can assign servers to any existing machine. It is not necessary to create a new machine unless your situation requires it.

For more information about this screen, see Machines in Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.

Assigning Servers to Oracle Access Management Machines

Use the Assign Servers to Machines screen to assign the Administration Server and Managed Servers to the new machine you just created.

On the Assign Servers to Machines screen:

  • (UNIX) EXISTING_DOMAIN_HOME/bin/startWebLogic.sh

  • (Windows) EXISTING_DOMAIN_HOME\bin\startWebLogic.cmd

When you created the domain, if you selected Production Mode on the Domain Mode and JDK screen, a prompt for the Administrator user login credentials is displayed. Provide the same credentials that you provided on the Administrator Account screen.

Step 3: Start the Managed Servers

  • If Node Manager is not configured, start the Managed Servers using the following instructions:

    To start a WebLogic Server Managed Server, use the startManagedWebLogic script:

    • (UNIX) EXISTING_DOMAIN_HOME/bin/startManagedWebLogic.sh managed_server_name admin_url

    • (Windows) EXISTING_DOMAIN_HOME\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd managed_server_name admin_url

    When prompted, enter your user name and password. This is the same user name and password which you provided in administrator account screen when creating the domain.

    Note:

    The startup of a Managed Server will typically start the applications that are deployed to it. Therefore, it should not be necessary to manually start applications after the Managed Server startup.
  • If Node Manager is configured, start the Managed Servers using the following instructions:
    1. Launch the Administration Console:
      1. Using a web browser, open the following URL:
        http://hostname:port/console
        Where:
        • hostname is the administration server host.
        • port is the administration server port on which the host server is listening for requests (7001 by default)
      2. When the login page appears, enter the user name and password you used to start the Administration Server.
    2. Start Managed Servers from the Administration Console. For instructions, see Start Managed Servers from the Administration Console.

Verifying the Configuration

After completing all configuration steps, you can perform additional steps to verify that your domain is properly configured.

You can start using the functionality of Oracle Access Management after you successfully configure it. See Getting Started with Oracle Access Management in Administering Oracle Access Management.

For information about integrating Oracle Access Management with other Identity Management components, see Introduction to IdM Suite Components Integration in Integration Guide for Oracle Identity Management Suite.

For more information about performing additional domain configuration tasks, see Performing Additional Domain Configuration Tasks.

Setting the Memory Parameters for OAM Domain (Optional)

If the initial startup parameter in Oracle Access Management domain, which defines the memory usage, is insufficient, you can increase the value of this parameter.

To change the memory allocation setting, do the following:
  1. Edit the Domain_home/bin/setUserOverrides.sh file to add the following line:
    MEM_ARGS="-Xms1024m -Xmx3072m"
  2. Save and close the file.
  3. Change the following memory allocation by updating the Java maximum memory allocation pool (Xmx) to 3072m and initial memory allocation pool (Xms) to 1024m. For example, change the following line to be:
    WLS_MEM_ARGS_64BIT="-Xms1024m -Xmx3072m"
  4. Save and close the file.

Updating the java.security File (Optional)

If you wish to integrate Oracle Access Management 12c (12.2.1.4.0) with Oracle Adaptive Access Manager (OAAM) 11g Release 2 (11.1.2.3.0), you must update java.security file with the following changes, post upgrade:

To do this:
  1. Open the java.security file located at JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/ in an editor.
  2. Remove TLSv1, TLSv1.1, MD5withRSA from the following key:
    key - jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms
  3. Remove MD5 from the following key:
    key - jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms

Troubleshooting

This section lists the common issues encountered while configuring Oracle Access Management and their workarounds.

Topics

WADL Generation Does not Show Description

Issue

WADL generation fails and a java.lang.IllegalStateException: ServiceLocatorImpl is returned.
Exception thrown when provider 
class org.glassfish.jersey.server.internal.monitoring.MonitoringFeature$StatisticsListener 
was processing MonitoringStatistics. Removing provider from further processing.
java.lang.IllegalStateException: ServiceLocatorImpl(__HK2_Generated_6,9,221656053) has been shut down 
at org.jvnet.hk2.internal.ServiceLocatorImpl.checkState(ServiceLocatorImpl.java:2393)
Also, when the WADL generation fails, the description field shows Root Resource, instead of a proper description in the following URLs.

http://<Host>:<AdminServerPort>/oam/services/rest/11.1.2.0.0/ssa/policyadmin/application.wadl
http://<Host>:<ManagedServerPort>/iam/access/api/v1/health/application.wadl

Resolution

Restart the Admin server and managed servers to resolve the wadl issue.

MDS ReadOnlyStoreException in OAM Policy Manager Diagnostic log

After you configure Oracle Access Management (OAM)12c (12.2.1.4.0), when you start the servers, the following exception is seen in the Administration Server and OAM Policy Manager diagnostic logs:

oracle.mds.exception.ReadOnlyStoreException: MDS-01273: 
The operation on the  resource /oracle/oam/ui/adfm/DataBindings.cpx 
failed because source metadata  store mapped to the namespace / DEFAULT 
is read only.

This exception does not impact the Administration Console functionality and hence can be safely ignore.

Ignorable Warnings in the Administration Server Logs

After you configure Oracle Access Management 12c (12.2.1.4.0), when you start the Administration Server, the following warning are seen in the Administration Server logs:

<Warning> <oracle.adfinternal.view.faces.renderkit.rich.NavigationPaneRenderer> 
<adc2140146> <AdminServer> <[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '42' for queue:

####<Aug 16, 2017 6:17:06,241 AM PDT> <Warning> <org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.component.UIXFacesBeanImpl>

This has no impact on the functionality, and therefore you can ignore it.
