To resolve this issue, start the Oracle SOA Suite server with the following property:


This completes the OIM bootstrap tasks successfully. After the successful completion of OIM bootstrap tasks, restart all of the servers. This time, do not use the property -Dbpm.enabled=true for starting the SOA server. When you start the Managed Servers for the first time after upgrade, start them with the Administration Server URL.

11.4 Authorization Policy Merge Issue

Oracle Identity Manager has two Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS) application policy stripes namely oim and OracleIdentityManager, whereas Oracle Identity Governance has only one OPSS application policy stripe named oim. The 12c upgrade process handles the merging of application stripes into one along with all the customization, at various phases.

If you encounter any error or issue related to OPSS application policies after upgrade, or if you find the policies in inconsistent state, complete the following steps to restore the OPSS application policies:

  1. The Authorization policy backup for OIM lying in OPSS schema is taken by the 12c pre-upgrade utility. This backup folder is located at oim.outputreportfolder/Auth-Policy-Backup.
    oim.outputreportfolder is the name of the pre-upgrade report output folder specified by you in the preupgrade_report_input.properties file when you ran the pre-upgrade utility.
    The backup folder contains the following files:
    • oim.outputreportfolder/Auth-Policy-Backup/oim.xml — This is for oim application policy stripe of

    • oim.outputreportfolder/Auth-Policy-Backup/OracleIdentityManager.xml — This is for OracleIdentityManager application policy stripe of

    Restore these stripes data in OIM database using the following WLST offline commands:

    • migrateSecurityStore(type="appPolicies", srcApp="OracleIdentityManager ", configFile="DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml", src="desContextOracle", dst="migrateStripe",overWrite="true")

    • migrateSecurityStore(type="appPolicies", srcApp="oim", configFile="DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml", src="desContextOIM", dst="migrateStripe",overWrite="true")

    In the above commands, DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml file is a copy of the DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config.xml file. The following service instances and JPS contexts are added in this file:

    <serviceInstance name="serviceInsOracle" provider="policystore.xml.provider" location="<oim.outputreportfolder>/Auth-Policy-Backup/OracleIdentityManager.xml"/> <serviceInstance name="serviceInsOIM" provider="policystore.xml.provider" location="<oim.outputreportfolder>/Auth-Policy-Backup/oim.xml"/>
    <jpsContext name="desContextOracle">
    <serviceInstanceRef ref="serviceInsOracle"/>
    <jpsContext name="desContextOIM">
    <serviceInstanceRef ref="serviceInsOIM"/>
    <jpsContext name="migrateStripe">
    <serviceInstanceRef ref="policystore.db"/>
  2. Migrate the OracleIdentityManager stripe to oim stripe using the following WLST offline command:

    migrateSecurityStore(type="appPolicies", srcApp="OracleIdentityManager", dstApp="oim", configFile=DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml, src="migrateStripe", dst="migrateStripe",overWrite="false")

  3. Merge the 12c Out Of The Box application policies on OIM application policy stripe named as oim by doing the following:
    1. Unzip the 12c_Middleware_Home/idm/common/templates/wls/oracle.OIM.reconfig.template_1 file to any temporary location. This temporary location is referred to as unzip_location.
    2. Verify that the file unzip_location/security/authorization/jazn-data.xml exists.
    3. Run the following WLST offline command:
      migrateSecurityStore(type="appPolicies", srcApp="oim", configFile=DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml, src="12c_context", dst="migrateStripe",overWrite="false")
      The following service instances and JPS contexts are added in the DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/jps-config_temp.xml file:
      <serviceInstance name="serviceIns12c_context" 
      <jpsContext name="12c_context">
      <serviceInstanceRef ref="service12c_context"/>
    4. Delete the OracleIdentityManager stripe using the following WLST command:

11.5 MAR Update or Metadata Merge Issue

When you start the Oracle Identity Manager Managed Severs for the first time after upgrade, if you encounter any error during the bootstrap process which is related to MARUPDATE bootstrap task, run the external utility mergeMDSDataAfterUpgrade.sh from the 12c Middleware Home to re-trigger the Metadata Services (MDS) merge process.

The upgrade utility merges the existing MDS data with 12c Out of the Box (OOTB) to preserve the customization.

When you start the OIM Managed Server for the first time, if you encounter errors for MARUPDATE bootstrap task, check if the issue is occurring during the MDS merge process. If so, run an external utility to re-trigger the MDS merge process as described in this section.

To check if the issue is occurring during the MDS merge process, do the following:
  1. Connect to the Oracle Identity Manager database.

  2. Use the following SQL query to check the status of the MARUPDATE bootstrap task:

    select State from OIMBootState where  FEATURENAME='MARUPDATE';
  3. If the query returns VALID or COMPLETE, the issue is not because of the MDS merge failure. Therefore, no action is required. If the query returns any other result, run the merge utility to re-trigger the MDS merge process.

To re-trigger the MDS merge process using the merge utility, complete the following steps:
  1. The OIM pre-upgrade reports folder must exist on the same machine from which the MDS merge utility is going to be triggered. If the pre-upgrade reports are on a different machine, copy them to the machine from which you wish to run the merge utility. The pre-upgrade report utility takes a back up of the MDS data and saves it in the pre-upgrade reports folder.
    The MDS backup data is located at <oim.outputreportfolder>/MDS-Backup folder. <oim.outputreportfolder> is the path that you specified for the property oim.outputreportfolder in the preupgrade_report_input.properties file, when generating the pre-upgrade reports for OIM.
  2. Run the following command from the location 12c_Middleware_Home/idm/server/bin/mergeMDSDataAfterUpgrade.sh
    You must specify the location of the OIM pre-upgrade reports folder. The MDS merge utility that you triggered merges the MDS backup data from the pre-upgrade reports folder with the 12c data OOTB.
  3. After the successful completion of the MDS merge process, connect to the OIM database and run the following query: update OIMBootState set State=’COMPLETE’ where FEATURENAME=’MARUPDATE’;
  4. Restart the OIM Managed Server.
(Optional) Enter the result of the procedure here.

11.6 Error When Opening ADF DI Excel Sheet After Upgrade

The ADFDI functionality will not work after you upgrade Oracle Identity Manager to 12c (

After upgrade, when you open the ADF DI spreadsheet in Excel, the following error is displayed:
ADFDI-05587: The client and server versions do not match. Using this version  of the client may result in unexpected behavior or errors.
The client version is (6882) but the server at http://host.example.com:22925/identity/adfdiRemoteServlet expects  version (16546) using precision 3.

To resolve this, uninstall and reinstall the ADF DI Excel plug-in, and then re-download the Excel.

11.7 Complilation Error When Starting the SOA Server After Upgrade

When you start the Oracle SOA Suite for the first time after upgrade, you may see the compilation error in the SOA server logs.

The following error is displayed in the SOA server logs:

Check the exception trace in the log (with logging level set to debug mode). 
If there is a patch installed on the server, verify that the bpelcClasspath 
domain property includes the patch classes.

Check the SOA composites status from Oracle Enterprise Manager console after successful start of the Oracle Identity Manager Managed Server.

If the Enterprise Manager console shows DefaultRequestApproval!5.0 composite status as actively deployed, ignore this one time error.

If you have upgraded your 11g Release 2 ( environments to 11g Release 2 (, and then to 12c (, you will see the compilation error for DefaultRequestApproval!3.0 composite. This composite was in use in 11g Release 2 ( Before you upgraded to, this composite processed all of the inflight requests. After upgrading to, all of the new requests go via DefaultRequestApproval!5.0 composite.

DefaultRequestApproval!3.0 is irrelevant when upgrading from to 12c ( Therefore, this compilation error can be ignored.

11.8 Warning in Oracle Identity Manager Server Logs After Upgrade

To resolve this, restart the Oracle Identity Manager Server.

11.13 soa-infra Application is in ‘Prepared’ State Post Upgrade

After you upgrade Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) and Oracle Access Management (OAM) integrated environment that was set up using Life Cycle Management (LCM) tool, the soa-infra application continues to be in Prepared mode, instead of showing active mode.

To resolve this issue, do the following:
  1. Stop all of the managed servers in the private domain. See Stopping Servers and Processes.
  2. Take a back up and delete the contents of the private domain.
  3. Pack the shared domain and unpack it on the private domain.
