Mapping an Oracle E-Business Suite in One Identity Manager

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.

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.

In addition, data can be imported from the Human Resources module (employee data and locations) and organizational data (suppliers, customers, other parties) can also be imported. The imported persons can be provided with all required permissions in the E-Business Suite by their E-Business Suite user accounts. Default One Identity Manager functions, such as the IT Shop or Identity Audit, can be used for these people.

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 synchronized between the One Identity Manager database and Oracle Database.

One Identity Manager users for managing an Oracle E-Business Suite

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

Table 1: Users
User Tasks
Target system administrators

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

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 for target system managers are mutually exclusive.

  • 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 Target systems | Oracle E-Business Suite or a child 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 entitlements for adding to the IT Shop.

  • Can add employees, who have an other identity than the Primary identity.

  • 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 in the Designer as required.

  • Enable or disable additional configuration parameters in the Designer as required.

  • Create custom processes in the Designer as required.

  • Create and configure schedules as required.

  • Create and configure password policies as required.

Configuration parameter

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. In the Designer, you can find an overview of all configuration parameters in the Base data | General | Configuration parameters category.
