Adjusting the One Identity Manager base configuration

The base data includes the main settings for configuring One Identity Manager. They are usually checked and customized on a one-off basis before the system goes into operation. The base data contains the database connection data, authentication module usage, languages used or the configuration parameter settings.

To display database information

  1. Select the category Base Data | General | Databases in the Designer.
  2. Select the database in the List Editor.

Property Meaning
Main database Identifies the database as the main database. The One Identity Manager database is marked with this option when the schema is installed the first time.
Customer Name of the customer.
Description Description of database.
Customer prefix Customer ID for prefix. The customer prefix is used to create and transfer customized scripts, processes and extensions to the One Identity Manager schema.
Module owner Module owner ID for prefix. The prefix is used to create and transfer customized scripts, processes and extensions to the One Identity Manager schema.
Staging level

Specifies whether the database is a test, development or production database. The permitted values are Development system, Test environment and Production system.

Status bar color

The color of the status bar can be displayed in a different color to the layout depending on the staging level. The color can be defined by template and customized. The following colors are defined as default:

  • None - development system database is connected.
  • Green - test environment database is connected.
  • Yellow - production system database is connected.
Last compiler relevant configuration date Time of the last change to the configuration which required the database to be recompiled. If the value is changed the database has to be recompiled.
Simulation started Time at which the last front-end simulation was started.

Stop DBQueue Processor

If this option is set for the main database, the DBQueue Processor does not process any more tasks. You can stop and start the DBQueue Processor with the appropriate administrative permissions in Job Queue Info.

For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

Stop One Identity Manager Service

If this option is set for the main database, the One Identity Manager Service does not process any more tasks. You stop and start the service with the appropriate administrative permissions in Job Queue Info.

For more detailed information, see the One Identity Manager Process Monitoring and Troubleshooting Guide.

Single-user mode process

Process requiring single-user mode. If the value 0, a single-user mode is not required.

NOTE: The database schedule QBM_PWatchDog on <database> checks regularly whether single-user mode is still required and resets the options if necessary.
