Initialize-QDataGovernanceActivity

Initializes a database to store data generated when a managed host has resource activity tracking enabled.

Note: Resource tracking activity is required for several reports, including the Resource Activity report. This database is only for audit information; it is separate from the One Identity Manager database which store configuration and security information.

Syntax:

Initialize-QDataGovernanceActivity [-ConnectionString] <String> [[-Validate] [<SwithParameter>]] [[-ActivityDatabaseIsOracle [<SwitchParameter>]] [<CommonParameters>]

Table 105: Parameters
Parameter Description
ConnectionString

Specify the database connection string used by Data Governance Edition to access the Resource Activity database.

Validate Specify this parameter if you want to the cmdlet to validate the connection string and fail if is in not valid.
ActivityDatabaseIsOracle If you are using an Oracle database management system for the Resource Activity database, specify this parameter to indicate that it is an Oracle database.
Examples:
Table 106: Examples
Example Description

Initialize -QDataGovernanceActivity -ConnectionString "Data Source=QAMDB;Initial Catalog=QAMAUDITDB;User ID=sa;Password=template$PWD" -Validate

Sets the connection string for the Resource Activity database; validating the connection string before proceeding.

Initialize-QDataGovernanceServer

Establishes the database connection between One Identity Manager and Data Governance Edition. The Data Governance server must be initialized before you can use Data Governance Edition to manage your resources.

Note: This PowerShell cmdlet is used in conjunction with the Data Governance Server installation msi when manually installing Data Governance Edition.

Syntax:

Initialize-QDataGovernanceServer [-DatabaseConnectionString] <String> [[-IdentityManagerIsOracle [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DefaultEmployeeSid [<String>]] [<CommonParameters>]

Table 107: Parameters
Parameter Description

DatabaseConnectionString

Specify the database connection string used by Data Governance Edition to access the One Identity Manager database.

An example of a connection string for Windows authentication may look like this:

"Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDatabase;User Id=myUser;Password=myPassword;Trusted_Connection=True"

An example of a connection string for SQL authentication may look like this:

"Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDatabase;User Id=myUser;Password=myPassword"

An example of a connection string for Oracle may look like this:

"Server=myServerAddress;User id=myUser;Password=myPassword;Direct=true;Connect mode=Direct;Service name=ServiceNameOfOracleInstance;Port=myPort"

IdentityManagerIsOracle If you are using an Oracle database management system for the One Identity Manager database, specify this parameter to indicate that an Oracle database is being used.
DefaultEmployeeSid

(Optional) Specify this parameter to take advantage of the automatic forest topology harvest. That is, adding this parameter adds the user associated with the specified SID to the One Identity Manager Employees with appropriate Data Governance application roles.

NOTE: This provides the same functionality as selecting the Add the current user to the One Identity Manager Employees with Data Governance application roles option when using the Data Governance Configuration wizard.
Examples:
Table 108: Examples
Example Description

Initialize-QDataGovernanceServer -DatabaseConnectionString 'Data Source=IMSQL;Initial Catalog=OneIM;UserID=sa;Password=template$PWD'

Initializes Data Governance Edition with the One Identity Manager database with the supplied connection string

Initialize-QDataGovernanceServer -DatabaseConnectionString 'Data Source=IMSQL;Initial Catalog=OneIM;UserID=sa;Password=myPwd' -DefaultEmployeeSid S-1-5-21-2969523365-1970145350-1015297841-500'

Establishes connection between the One Identity Manager database and Data Governance Edition; and adds the specified employee to the One Identity Manager Employees with the Data Governance application roles.

Register-QServiceConnectionPoint

Registers service connection points (SCPs) in an Active Directory domain.

Note: This can be helpful when the service account registered to a domain does not have sufficient permissions to create an SCP.

Syntax:

Register-QServiceConnectionPoint [-DomainDnsName] <String> [-DeploymentId] <String> [-ServerDnsName] <String> [[-ServerNetTcpPortNumber] [>Int32>]] [<CommonParameters>]

Table 109: Parameters
Parameter Description
DomainDnsName Specify the full DNS name of the Active Directory domain where the SCP will be registered.
DeploymentId Specify the deployment name of the Data Governance instance.
ServerDnsName Specify the full DNS name of the computer hosting the Data Governance server.
ServerNetTcpPortNumber (Optional) Specify the Net.tcp port number of the Data Governance server. If this parameter is not specified, the default port (8722) is used.
Examples:
Table 110: Examples
Example Description

Register-QServiceConnectionPoint -DomainDnsName vmset6.dge.dev.ca - DeploymentId DGEMAIN - ServerDnsName 2k8.vmset6.dge.dev.ca

Registers the SCP for an Active Directory domain.
