Managing Oracle E-Business Suite

Managing Oracle E-Business Suite

One Identity Manager offers simplified user administration for Oracle E-Business Suite. One Identity Manager concentrates on setting up and editing user accounts as well as providing the required permissions. For this, applications, responsibilities, data groups and data group units, security groups, process groups, menus and attributes are mapped in One Identity Manager. You can imported selected data from the Human Resource Module (people data with their roles and locations respectively) and organizational data (suppliers, customers, other parties).

One Identity Manager provides company employees with the necessary user accounts. For this, you can use different mechanisms to connect employees to their user accounts. You can also manage user accounts independently of employees and therefore set up administrator user accounts.

Architecture Overview

To access Oracle E-Business Suite data, the Oracle E-Business Suite connector is installed on a synchronization server. The Oracle E-Business Suite connector establishes communication with the Oracle E-Business Suite to be synchronized. The synchronization server ensures data is compared between the One Identity Manager database and Oracle Database.

One Identity Manager Users for Managing Oracle E-Business Suite

One Identity Manager Users for Managing Oracle E-Business Suite

The following users are used for setting up and managing a E-Business Suite system.

Table 1: Users
User Task
Target system administrators

Target system administrators must be assigned to the application role Target system | Administrators.

Users with this application role:

  • Administrate application roles for individual target systems types.
  • Specify the target system manager.
  • Set up other application roles for target system managers if required.
  • Specify which application roles are conflicting for target system managers
  • Authorize other employee to be target system administrators.
  • Do not assume any administrative tasks within the target system.
Target system managers

Target system managers must be assigned to the application role Target systems | Oracle E-Business Suite or a sub application role.

Users with this application role:

  • Assume administrative tasks for the target system.
  • Create, change or delete target system objects, like user accounts or groups.
  • Edit password policies for the target system.
  • Prepare for adding to the IT Shop.
  • Configure synchronization in the Synchronization Editor and defines the mapping for comparing target systems and One Identity Manager.
  • Edit the synchronization's target system types and outstanding objects.
  • Authorize other employees within their area of responsibility as target system managers and create child application roles if required.
One Identity Manager administrators
  • Create customized permissions groups for application roles for role-based login to administration tools in the Designer, as required.
  • Create system users and permissions groups for non-role based login to administration tools, as required.
  • Enable or disable additional configuration parameters in the Designer, as required.
  • Create custom processes in the Designer, as required.
  • Create and configures schedules, as required.
  • Create and configure password policies, as required.

Setting Up Oracle E-Business Suite Synchronization

Setting Up Oracle E-Business Suite Synchronization

One Identity Manager supports synchronization with Oracle Database 12.1 and 12.2. One Identity Manager Service is responsible for synchronizing data between the One Identity Manager database and Oracle E-Business Suite.

The Synchronization Editor provides several project templates with which Oracle E-Business Suite user accounts and entitlements can be selected from either organizational data or data from the Human Resource Module for setting up synchronization.

To load Oracle E-Business Suite objects into the One Identity Manager database for the first time

  1. Prepare a user account with sufficient permissions for synchronizing in Oracle E-Business Suite.
  2. The One Identity Manager parts for managing Oracle E-Business Suite systems are available if the configuration parameter "TargetSystem\EBS" is set.

    • Check whether the configuration parameter is set in the Designer. Otherwise, set the configuration parameter and compile the database.

    • Other configuration parameters are installed when the module is installed. Check the configuration parameters and modify them as necessary to suit your requirements.
  3. Install and configure a synchronization server and declare the server as Job server in One Identity Manager.
  4. Create a synchronization project with the Synchronization Editor.
