General main data of E-Business Suite systems

On the General tab, you enter the following main data:

Table 32: General main data of E-Business Suite systems



Display name

Name of the system to be displayed on the user interface

Account definition (initial)

Initial account definition for creating user accounts. This account definition is used if automatic assignment of employees to user accounts is used for this system and if user accounts are to be created that are already managed (Linked configured). The account definition's default manage level is applied.

User accounts are only linked to the employee (Linked) if no account definition is given. This is the case on initial synchronization, for example.

Target system managers

Application role, in which target system managers are specified for the system. Target system managers only edit the objects from systems to which they are assigned. A different target system manager can be assigned to each system.

Select the One Identity Manager application role whose members are responsible for administration of this system. Use the button to add a new application role.

Synchronized by

Type of synchronization through which data is synchronized between the system and One Identity Manager. You can no longer change the synchronization type once objects for this system are present in One Identity Manager.

When you create system using the Synchronization Editor, One Identity Manager is used.

NOTE: If you select No synchronization, you can define custom processes to exchange data between One Identity Manager and the target system.

Unique name for the system in X509 syntax.

Defining categories for the inheritance of E-Business Suite entitlements

In One Identity Manager, user accounts can selectively inherit entitlements. To do this, entitlements, and user accounts are divided into categories. The categories can be freely selected and are specified using a mapping rule. Each category is given a specific position within the template. The mapping rule contains different tables. Use the user account table to specify categories for target system dependent user accounts. In the other tables, enter your categories for the permissions. Each table contains the category positions position 1 to position 63.

To define a category

  1. In the Manager, select the system in the Oracle E-Business Suite > Systems category.

  2. Select the Change main data task.

  3. Switch to the Mapping rule category tab.

  4. Extend the relevant roots of a table.

  5. To enable the category, double-click .

  6. Enter a category name of your choice for user accounts and entitlements in the login language that you use.

  7. Save the changes.

Editing the synchronization project for an E-Business Suite system

Synchronization projects in which a system is already used as a base object can also be opened in the Manager. You can, for example, check the configuration or view the synchronization log in this mode. The Synchronization Editor is not started with its full functionality. You cannot run certain functions, such as, running synchronization or simulation, starting the target system browser and others.

NOTE: The Manager is locked for editing throughout. To edit objects in the Manager, close the Synchronization Editor.

To open an existing synchronization project in the Synchronization Editor

  1. In the Manager, select the Oracle E-Business Suite > Systems category.

  2. Select the system in the results list.

  3. Select the Change main data task.

  4. Select the Edit synchronization project task.

E-Business Suite user accounts

You use One Identity Manager to manage Oracle E-Business Suite user accounts. A user can log on to the E-Business Suite using their Oracle E-Business Suite user account. The user retains all permissions and security groups assigned to the user account. In addition, user accounts can also be linked to employees who are managed in the Oracle E-Business Suite. Employee data from the Oracle E-Business Suite can be synchronized with the One Identity Manager database and linked to the user accounts.

A user account can be linked to an employee in One Identity Manager. You can also manage user accounts separately from employees.

NOTE: It is recommended to use account definitions to set up user accounts for company employees. In this case, some of the main data described in the following is mapped through templates from employee main data.

NOTE: If employees are to obtain their user accounts through account definitions, the employees must own a central E-Business Suite user account and obtain their IT operating data through assignment to a primary department, a primary location, or a primary cost center.
