Template for the Configuration File

NOTE: The templates are only available in the program "Job Service Configuration".

Templates for a One Identity Manager Service configuration are supplied.

  • SQL Server direct

    This template already contains the most important modules with settings for a simple One Identity Manager Service configuration with a direct connection to a SQL Server. You can load the template using the menu item Templates | SQL server direct. After loading, the configuration the template needs to be modified as required.

  • Oracle Server direct

    This template already contains the most important modules with settings for a simple One Identity Manager Service configuration with a direct connection to a Oracle Database.

One Identity Manager Service Configuration

One Identity Manager Service Configuration

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.

A Job provider function makes a Job destination process step available within the One Identity Manager Service. The Job destination function handles the process steps and returns a result to the Job provider. The Job provider evaluates the result.

The combination of a Job provider on one server and a Job destination on another server is called a "Job gate". The Job provider and Job destination are configured within the Jobgate such that they can communicate with each other.

Table 197: One Identity Manager Service Provider
Provider

Description

MSSQLJobProvider The MSSQLJobProvider collects process steps from the One Identity Manager database under SQL Server and sends them to a Job destination.
OracleJobProvider The OracleJobProvider collects process steps from the One Identity Manager database under Oracle Database and sends them to a Job destination.
FileJobProvider

The FTPJobProvider reads process queries and results from files and writes them to file. These files can be processed by FileJobGate (File or FTP Job destination). The data is transferred using these files.

FTPJobProvider

The FTPJobProvider is based on the functionality of the FileJobProvider. The FTPJobProvider reads process queries and results from files and writes them to file. After the files have been created in the local directory, the FTPJobProvider connects to the FTP server and transfers all the files. A connection is also made to the FTP Server when it gets a signal and the data is collected.

HTTPJobProvider

The HTTPJobProvider receives process steps from a parent Job server. The data transfer is done by HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

AppServerJobProvider

The AppServerJobProvider gets process steps from the application server and sends them to a Job destination.

Table 198: One Identity Manager Service Job Destinations
JobDestination Description
JobServiceDestination The JobServiceDestination is the One Identity Manager Service component that actually deals with handling process steps. It requests the process steps from the Job provider, processes them with the process component and returns the result.
FileJobDestination The FileJobDestination processes the process steps that are queued by the FileJobGate (FileJobProvider or FTPJobProvider) and returns the results to the Job provider.
FTPJobDestination The FTPJobDestination handles the process steps that are queued in the FileJobGate (FileJobProvider or FTPJobProvider) and returns the results to the Job provider.
HTTPJobDestination An HTTPJobDestination sends process steps to a follow-on Job server. The data transfer is in HyperText Transfer Protocol.
Table 199: One Identity Manager Service Job Gates
Jobgate Description
HTTPJobGate Consists of HTTPJobProvider and HTTPJobDestination.
FileJobGate Consists of FileJobProvider, FileJobDestination, FTPJobProvier and FTPJobDestination. JobProvider and JobDestinations can be combined with each other.
