Oracle Identity Manager 11g (11.1.1.3.0) is a highly flexible and scalable enterprise identity management system that manages access privileges of users within enterprise IT resources. This course helps to answer the critical compliance questions of "Who has access to what, when, how and why?"

Learn To:

  • Build authorization policies to manage access rights.
  • Access Oracle Identity Manager reports using Oracle BI Publisher.
  • Enable auditing for Oracle Identity Manager.
  • Use Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control to access logs and monitor the state of Oracle Identity Manager.
  • Export and import Oracle Identity Manager configuration objects.
  • Create, load and manage Oracle Identity Manager users, organizations and roles.
  • Automate provisioning users through a request and approval workflow.

Benefits to You:

Secure your organization's critical applications and sensitive data to lower operational costs. Manage the entire user identity life cycle across all enterprise resources.

Part 1

First, you'll gain an understanding of the importance, benefits, terminology, functional aspects and infrastructure of identity management and identity administration.

Part 2

Next, you'll learn about Oracle Identity Manager, including how it uses connectors to manage reconciliation and provisioning workflows.

Types of Reconciliation

You'll also learn about two types of reconciliation: authoritative reconciliation and account reconciliation. Instructors will review how authoritative reconciliation is used to identify new user accounts on trusted sources and transfer them into Oracle Identity Manager. Similarly, you'll learn how account reconciliation is used to recognize changes to user accounts on non-authoritative sources.

Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware

Explore Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, including how to use this tool to view logs and monitor Oracle Identity Manager and its components.
