Getting Started

The standard Web Portal is part of an internet application which you can use from your internet browser. The prerequisite for this is a correctly configured Web server and a One Identity Manager database configured and populated with user data. Using the standard Web Portal, you can request and cancel products, as well as renew limited requests. Authorized employees can approve requests and cancellations, perform attestations, view rule violations and grant or deny exception approval. Furthermore, you can change the main password and generate statistics.

Depending on your role and level of security, you can use the Web Portal to:

  • Request access to resources
  • Track the progress of your requests
  • Approve or deny requests made by your employees
  • Subscribing reports
  • Manage rule violations
  • View reports and statistics on resources or roles assigned to you or your employees

The standard Web Portal can be used without restrictions if the following guidelines are taken into account.

The following software must be available on the server:

  • Apache 2.0 or 2.2 with following modules:mod_mono, rewrite, ssl (optional)

Table 2: Additional System Requirements for Implementing an Oracle Database

Additional software

Windows operating system

  • Oracle Client Tools

    This version should correspond at least to the version of the database in use. Note recommendations from Oracle with respect to the Client Tools you want to implement.

    In a 64-bit system the Oracle clients are required in 64-bit and 32-bit versions.

NOTE: The use of Oracle Client Tools is only supported by Web Designer under Windows operating systems.

NOTE: If a direct connection is possible to the Oracle database by TCP/IP, the Oracle client is not necessary. The Web Designer connector integrated in Oracle sets up the database connection.

NOTE: Use of Oracle Real Application Clusters and other Oracle database configurations require either

  • input of several "ADDRESS" entries for one "net_service_name" in the client-side tnsnames.ora

    or

  • additional entries in the client-side sqlnet.ora

if access to the Oracle database is through the Oracle client.

NOTE: The standard Web Portal is supplied in German and English. You merely have to load the corresponding translations for this. All operations with the One Identity Manager standard Web Portal is preceded by authentication. Possible authentication methods concur with the methods used for all other One Identity Manager tools. Some authentication methods allow single sign on, making it possible for you to log in without having to enter authentication data every time.

A minimum screen resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels is recommended with at least 16 bit color in order to optimize the user interface graphics. A display size of at least 9.7 inches is recommended for mobile displays, for example, when using a tablet.
