18 Configuring Oracle Identity Governance

You can control the behavior of various Oracle Identity Governance components by using system properties. Managing system properties involve understanding the predefined and configurable system properties, searching and modifying the system properties, and configuring various components and the identity provider by using the system properties.

This chapter describes how to configure Oracle Identity Governance deployment by using system configuration properties. It contains the following sections:

18.1 About System Properties

System Properties are entities that lets you control the configuration of Oracle Identity Manager.

System properties define the characteristics that control the behavior of Oracle Identity Manager. You can define the functionality of user interfaces, such as the Oracle Identity Manager Self Service and Oracle Identity Administration, by using system properties. For example, you can define the number of consecutive attempts the user can make to login to Oracle Identity Manager unsuccessfully before Oracle Identity Manager locks the user account. In other words, a system property is an entity by which you can control the configuration of Oracle Identity Manager.

18.2 Types of System Properties

Various system properties are predefined in the PTY table of the database. In addition, you can add some system properties to the PTY table.

This section describes the different types of system properties in the following topics:

18.2.1 Default System Properties in Oracle Identity Governance

Default system properties are predefined in the PTY table. Each system property has a keyword and default value.

Table 18-1 describes default system properties in Oracle Identity Governance.

Specifies the LDAP container mapper plug-in to be used

LDAPContainerMapperPlugin

oracle.iam.ldapsync.impl.DefaultLDAPContainerMapper

When Oracle Identity Manager is installed with LDAP synchronization enabled, this plug-in determines in which container users and roles are to be created. Value of this system property indicates the default Oracle Identity Manager plug-in name used for computing the container values. If the default plug-in does not meet the requirement, then you can define your own plug-in to determine the container and specify the name of the plug-in in this system property.

URL for challenge questions modification

OIM.ChallengeQuestionsModificationURL

NONE

When a user is locked, an automatic unlock occurs after a prescribed time period. This property defines that time period in seconds. Therefore, for example, if a user account is locked and the value of this property is 86400 seconds (one day), then the account is automatically unlocked after one day.

The value of this property is the URL within OAAM that handles the challenge questions. For example:

http://OAAM_HOST:OAAM_PORT/OAAM_SERVER/userPreferences.do?showView=registerQuestions

18.2.2 Non-Default System Properties in Oracle Identity Governance

Oracle Identity Manager provides a set of system properties that are not present in the PTY table by default.

You can add these non-default system properties to the PTY table by using the Identity System Administration, and then use the properties to change some of the default settings in Oracle Identity Manager. For example, if you want to configure the number of times Oracle Identity Manager retries to get a connection when the JDBC connection fails, then you can configure the JDBC Connection Retry Attempts system property.

Table 18-2 lists and describes Non-Default system properties which you can add to the PTY table

Table 18-2 Non-Default System Properties

Property Name Description Keyword Sample Value

OIM Database Query Retry Attempts

Number of times SQL queries to be retried for handling Oracle RAC failures.

In the absence of this property in the PTY table, SQL queries for handling Oracle RAC failures are retried three times by default.

OIM.DBQueryRetryAttempts

5

OIM Database Query Retry Interval

Time in seconds after which each SQL retry takes place for Oracle RAC failures.

In the absence of the property in the PTY table, SQL query occurs after every 7 seconds by default.

OIM.DBQueryRetryInterval

10 seconds

OIM Paging Limit

Default paging limit for search operations on user entity.

OIM.PagingLimit

300

JDBC Connection Retry Attempts

Number of times Oracle Identity Manager retries to get a connection when the JDBC connection fails.

In the absence of this property in the PTY table, the JDBC connection is retried three times by default.

OIM.JDBCConnectionRetryAttempts

5

When the value is 0, it means no retry.

JDBC Connection Retry Interval

Time in seconds between each JDBC connection retry.

In the absence of this property in the PTY table, each JDBC connection retry occurs at an interval of 7 seconds.

OIM.JDBCConnectionRetryInterval

10 seconds

Allowed Back URLs

This property is required if you want to setup any non-OIM/OAM URLs to be a valid backURL on the Track Self Registration Request page. Oracle Identity Manager validates the back URLs and redirect URLs against a list of URLs provided by this system property. The value of this property is a comma-separated list of URLs that Oracle Identity Manager allows for redirection.

XL.AllowedBackURLs

http://OIM_HOST:OIM_PORT/

Allowed Back URLs Mode This system property determines the mode in which the XL.AllowedBackURLs system property works. It has the following possible values:
  • Enforce: Ensure that the current URL is present in the white list specified as the value of XL.AllowedBackURLs. If not present, then change the back URL to the default URL, which is the sign-in page.

  • Disable: Log all the white list validations.

The default value is Enforce.

XL.AllowedBackURLsMode Enforce
XL.AllowedOrigins Allows users to set the whitelist for the CORS filter. XL.AllowedOrigins Apply the following guidelines for specifying the value:
  • The URLs can be comma separated, for example http://www.example.com:14001 and https://www.test.com:14003.

  • The URL can contain simple wildcard matching (for example http://*.example.com:14000, http://*.com:14001) with only a single '*' character. '*.example.*.com' will not work correctly.

  • The pattern matching is very simple and only pertains to the domain part of the URL. No matching on scheme or port is supported (*://example.com:14001 or http://example.com:*).

  • Only http and https schemes are supported.

  • The matching goes from right to left.

  • The '*' will only match the text of domain after the period and before the next period. Patterns such as '*ampl.com' and '*.*partial*.c*' are not supported.

  • A single '*' will match anything and should be used for test/development only.

Service Account Encrypted Parameter Value This system property is used to control the functionality of the following API: tcITResourceInstanceOperationsBean.getITResourceInstanceParameters(long plITResourceInstanceKey)

By default, this API masks the value of encrypted fields. This makes your deployment more secure.

Oracle recommends creating this property only if a legacy connector or an old custom code requires the legacy behavior of the above API.

When the value is set to False, the encrypted parameter values are masked. When the value is set to True, the encrypted parameter values are returned by the above API.

ServiceAccount.API.EncryptedParamsValue True/False
Service Account Parameters Value Store This property is used to manage the storage of the parameter values of the IT resource parameters.

When the property value is set to False, the parameter values are stored in the credential store. When the property value is set to True, the parameter values are stored in the database.

The default and recommended value of this property is False, which makes the product more secure.

This property will exist in an upgraded environment. Perform the steps related to IT resource security post upgrade. See 'Upgrade Service Account parameter security' in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrading Oracle Identity and Access Management for more information..

ServiceAccount.ParamsValue.DBStore True/False

18.3 Managing System Properties

Managing system properties involve searching and modifying system properties by using Identity System Administration, and purging the cache.

This section contains the following topics:

18.3.1 Searching for System Properties

Use the Configuration Properties section of the Identity System Administration to perform simple and advanced search for system properties.

Oracle Identity Manager Advanced Administration allows you to perform the following types of search operations for system properties:

You cannot modify the Property Name and Keyword fields of a system property created in a non-English locale. As a workaround, delete the existing system property and create a new one with the desired values.

In an English locale, non-ASCII characters are allowed in a system property name. When you modify the name of a system property to include non-ASCII characters, you must ensure the following if you want the changes to be translated into other languages:

To modify a System Property:

  1. Search for the system property that you want to modify.
  2. In the Property Name column of the search results table, click the system property that you want to modify. The System Property Details page is displayed.
  3. Modify the values in the fields. Generally, you need to modify the Value field to change the functionality that the system property provides.
  4. Click Save to save the changes made.

    A message confirming that the system property has been modified is displayed.

18.3.4 Purging Cache

Whenever you make any change to a system property by using any method other than from the Identity System Administration, you must run purge cache utility to fetch the changes that are reflected in Oracle Identity Manager.

To clear the server cache:

  1. Depending on the operating system being used, navigate to the following directory:
    • For Microsoft Windows:

      OIM_HOME\server\bin\

    • For UNIX:

      OIM_HOME/server/bin/

  2. Run one of the following commands:
    • For Microsoft Windows:

      PurgeCache.bat CATEGORY_NAME
      
    • For UNIX:

      sh PurgeCache.sh CATEGORY_NAME
      

    The CATEGORY_NAME name argument represents the Oracle Identity Manager category name that is to be purged, for example, FormDefinition.

    To purge all the categories, pass a value of "All" to the PurgeCache utility. It is recommended to clear all the categories.

    sh PurgeCache.sh All
    

    Note:

    If Oracle Identity Governance is installed on IPv6 host computer, then pass ipv6 as the last input argument to the PurgeCache.sh or PurgeCache.bat script, as shown:

    sh PurgeCache.sh All ipv6

    Or:

    PurgeCache.bat All ipv6

    This property determines whether or not a deleted user account can be reused.

  3. To reuse a deleted user account, modify the value of this property to TRUE, and drop the unique index for the USR_LOGIN column in the USR table and create a non unique index. To prevent a user account from being reused, assign this property a value of FALSE.

    Note:

    It is imperative to de-provision all accounts associated with a deleted user, because if you create a new user with the same user name as that of the deleted user by setting the XL.UserIDReuse property to TRUE, then the new user might get access to offline accounts of the deleted user that was not deleted as part of the de-provisioning process.

  4. In addition to creating a non-unique index, create a unique functional index similar to the following:
    DROP INDEX UDX_USR_LOGIN;
    CREATE INDEX UDX_USR_LOGIN ON USR (USR_LOGIN);

    This index prevents the existence of multiple active users with the same login name, while permitting the existence of multiple deleted users with that login name. Without this unique index, it is possible in race conditions to create two active users with the same login name, if they are both created at the same time.

  5. Click Save.
