Changing the key text of a translation

Use this task to change the key of a translation (Entrykey) in the DialogMultiLanguage table and the source text on all objects that use this key, such as a column name or description.

IMPORTANT: Before changing a key text, check how the translation is used.

To change a key text

  1. In the Designer, select the Base data category.

  2. Start the Language Editor using Edit translation in database.

  3. In the column Key for the required entry, select the context menu Edit key.

Importing the translation.

The default One Identity Manager installation is supplied in English - United States [en-US] and German - Germany [de-DE]. To translate the Web Portal there are other languages available. These are provided in the form of One Identity Manager Language Pack CSV files.

NOTE: You will find the One Identity Manager Language Pack in the Support Portal under https://support.oneidentity.com/.

The import:

  • Creates the translations in the DialogMultiLanguage table.

  • Updates currently existing entries based on the key, the table, and the column.

  • Deletes the entries.

To import the language files

  1. In the Designer, select the Base data category.

  2. Start the Language Editor using the Edit translation in database task.

  3. In the editor toolbar, click .

  4. Select *.CSV files with the required language and click Open.

    This starts the import. The process may take some time.

  5. Commit the changes to the main database. Use the Database | Save to database menu item.

    After the changes have been committed to the main database, the system data must be recalculated by the DBQueue Processor in order make the new multi-language data available to all system users.

Process orchestration in One Identity Manager

One Identity Manager uses processes for mapping business processes. A process consists of process steps that represent processing tasks and are joined by predecessor/successor relations. This functionality allows flexibility when linking actions and sequences to 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 One Identity Manager Service enables the distribution of the information administrated in the One Identity Manager database throughout the network. The One Identity Manager Service performs data synchronization between the database and any connected target systems and executes actions at the database and file levels. The One Identity Manager Service retrieves process steps from the Job queue. Process steps are executed by process components. The One Identity Manager Service also creates an instance of the required process component and transfers the process step parameters. 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.

To monitor the process handling, use the Job Queue Info program. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

Setting up Job servers

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. For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

Setting up a Job server requires the following steps:

  • Create an entry for the Job server in the One Identity Manager database.

  • Specify the machine roles and server functions for the Job server.

    Installation packages to be installed on the Job server are found, depending on the selected machine roles. The server function defines the functionality of a server in One Identity Manager. One Identity Manager processes are handled depending on the server function.

  • Install the One Identity Manager Service.

  • Configure the One Identity Manager Service.

  • Start the One Identity Manager Service.

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.

  • A Job server must be known in the One Identity Manager database for each queue.

You can set up Job servers in different ways. You can carry out the necessary steps in the Designer using the Job Server Editor. In the Designer, start the Job Server Editor in the Base data | Installation | Job server category using the Edit Job server task.
