Oracle Identity Management Connector Overview

Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) is a complete Identity Governance system that automates access rights management, and provisions IT resources.  One important aspect of this system is the Identity Connectors that are used to integrate OIM with external, identity-aware applications.

New in OIM 11gR2 PS1 is the Identity Connector Framework (ICF) which is the foundation for both OIM and Oracle Waveset.

Identity Connectors perform several very important functions:

  • On boarding accounts from trusted sources like SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, & PeopleSoft HCM
  • Managing users lifecycle in various Target systems through provisioning and recon operations
  • Synchronizing entitlements from targets systems so that they are available in the OIM request catalog
  • Fulfilling access grants and access revoke requests
  • Some connectors may support Role Lifecycle Management
  • Some connectors may support password sync from target to OIM

The Identity Connectors are broken down into several families:

The BMC Remedy Family

  • BMC Remedy Ticket Management
  • BMC Remedy User Management

The Microsoft Family

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Microsoft Active Directory Password Sync
  • Microsoft Exchange

The Novell Family

  • Novell eDirectory
  • Novell GroupWise

The Oracle E-Business Suite Family

  • Oracle e-Business Employee Reconciliation
  • Oracle e-Business User Management

The PeopleSoft Family

  • PeopleSoft Employee Reconciliation
  • PeopleSoft User Management

The SAP Family

  • SAP CUA

  • SAP User Management

The UNIX Family

As you can see, there are a large number of connectors that support apps from a variety of vendors to enable OIM to manage your business applications and resources.
