Database Connection Properties

NOTE: Changes to the data are not usually necessary and should only be made by advanced users.

To display database information

  • Select the category Base Data | General | Databases in the Designer.
Table 50: Database information
Property Meaning
Main database Identifies the database as the main database. The One Identity Manager database is marked with this option when the schema is installed the first time.
Customer Name of the customer.
Description Description of database.
Customer prefix Customer ID for prefix. The customer prefix is used to create and transfer customized scripts, processes and extensions to the One Identity Manager schema.
Module owner Module owner ID for prefix. The prefix is used to create and transfer customized scripts, processes and extensions to the One Identity Manager schema.
Staging level

Specifies whether the database is a test, development or production database. Permitted values are:

  • Development system
  • Test environment
  • Production system
Status bar color

The color of the status bar can be set differently to the layout color depending on the staging level. The color can be defined by template and customized. The following colors are defined as default:

  • None - development system database is connected.
  • Green - test environment database is connected.
  • Yellow - production system database is connected.
Last compiler relevant configuration date Time of the last change to the configuration which required the database to be recompiled. If the value is changed the database has to be recompiled.
Simulation started Time at which the last front-end simulation was started.

Stop DBQueue Processor

If this option is set for the main database, the DBQueue Processor does not process any more tasks. You can make the DBQueue Processor start and stop with the appropriate administrative rights in the program "Job Queue Info".
Stop One Identity Manager Service If this option is set for the main database, the One Identity Manager Service does not process any more tasks. You can make the service start and stop with the appropriate administrative permissions in the program "Job Queue Info".
Provider "VI.DB.ViSqlFactory,VI.DB" is entered for the Microsoft SQL Server connection. "VI.DB.Oracle.ViOracleFactory, VI.DB.Oracle" is entered for the Oracle server connection.
Connection parameter

Login data for the database user, database server and the database. The data is entered into the database during schema installation.

Authentication Module The default authentication is entered here.
Language culture Default language. Fallback alternative for displaying language dependent text.
Edition Edition ID.
Edition version

Version number of the edition.

Edition description Detailed description of the edition.
Database ID Identifier for the database. The database ID is taken from the the original database server and database data. The database ID has to be recalculated if a database is created from a database backup on another server. When a database is compiled, the database ID is checked and changed if necessary.
Single-user mode process

Process requiring single-user mode. If the value = 0, single-user mode is not required.

NOTE: The database schedule QBM_PWatchDog on <database> check regularly whether single-user mode is still required and resets the options if necessary.

Single-user mode start time

Time of the request for single-user mode.

NOTE: The database schedule QBM_PWatchDog on <database> check regularly whether single-user mode is still required and resets the options if necessary.

Public key for encryption The public key is entered by the program "Crypto Configuration" and is needed for database encryption. For more information, see theOne Identity Manager Installation Guide.

Configuring a One Identity Manager Database for Testing, Development or Production

Use the staging level of the One Identity Manager database to specify whether a test database, development database or a live database is being dealt with. A number of configuration settings are controlled by the staging level. These are set when you modify the staging level.

Configuration Parameters for System Configuration

Use configuration parameters to configure the behavior of the system's basic settings. One Identity Manager provides default settings for different configuration parameters. Check the configuration parameters and modify them as necessary to suit your requirements.

Configuration parameters are defined in the One Identity Manager modules. Each One Identity Manager module can also install configuration parameters. You can find an overview of all configuration parameters in the category Base data | General | Configuration parameters in the Designer.
