One Identity Manager uses so called 'processes' for mapping business processes. A process consists of process steps, which represent processing tasks and are joined by predecessor/successor relations. This functionality allows flexibility when linking up actions and sequences on object events. Processes are modeled using process templates. A process generator (Jobgenerator) is responsible for converting script templates in processes and process steps into a concrete process in the ’Job queue’.
The server service "One Identity Manager Service" ensures distribution in the network of data managed in the One Identity Manager database. The One Identity Manager Service performs data synchronization between the database and any connected target systems and executes actions at the database and file level. The One Identity Manager Service retrieves process steps from the JobQueue. Process steps are executed by process components. One Identity Manager Service also creates an instance of the required process component and passes the parameters to the process step. Decision logic monitors the execution of the process steps and determines how processing should continue depending on the results of the executed process components. The One Identity Manager Service enables parallel processing of process steps because it can create several instances of process components.
The One Identity Manager Service is the only One Identity Manager component authorized to make changes in the target system.
The One Identity Manager Service handles defined processes. To execute the processes, the One Identity Manager Service has to be installed on the One Identity Manager network server.
Each One Identity Manager Service within the network must have a unique queue identifier. The process steps are requested by the Job queue using exactly this queue name. Enter this queue name in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file. Create a corresponding Job server entry for every queue.
To declare a Job server in the One Identity Manager
You can use Job Server Editor to install, configure and start the One Identity Manager Service remotely.
This configuration is already created when the One Identity Manager Service is installed. Use Job Server Editor to modify each configuration setting.
Execute the necessary steps with the Job Server Editor. Start the Job Server Editor in the category Base data | Installation | Job server using the task Edit Job server in the Designer.
You use the Job Server Editor to edit the Job server attributes and specify the server function. Install and configure the One Identity Manager Service also using the Job Server Editor. The editor is started from the program "Designer" and opens in the document view. Only additional Job Server Editor functions are described in the following.
The following items are added to the menu bar when the editor starts.
