OIA: Entitlements outside roles in BI Publisher

My colleague Rene has some great postings explaining the importance of keeping an eye on entitlements that fall outside roles whilst developing an RBAC model and how to achieve that within OIA.

In this posting I just add another example report which will expose entitlements falling outside roles but this time formatted for use with BI Publisher.  This will be useful to customers wishing to use BI Publisher as a reporting tool.

When loaded into BI Publisher the report will generate a listing by Business Unit, by Resource, by user for all the user's entitlements that fall outside the role model.  You can specify a Business Unit and Resource as parameters to the report.  This report will only include attributes flagged as minable to allow it to avoid including attributes that are unimportant from an entitlement  point of view (like Firstname, for example).

 The two BI Publisher files which define this report--the.xdo file which contains the SQL definition and the .rtf formatting file--are available here.

The Sun Role Manager (Oracle Identity Analytics) webservices interface

Oracle Identity Analytics (lately Sun Role Manager) provides a web service interface to query and update it's data.  Data such as roles, business units, users and audit information can be managed in this way.

This small JDeveloper project consumes the SRM 5.03 WSDL and demonstrates some calls to the web service.

You will need to parameterize src/com/oracle/gte/oia/Main.java with the correct URL and sample role and business unit names for your deployment of SRM.  Recompile and then run com.oracle.gte.oia.Main.class.
The authentication to SRM is done using the WS-Security UsernameToken profile, see here for a description. To provide the username/password to SRM the class src/com/oracle/gte/oia/util/handlers/ClientAuthenticationSOAPHandler.java implements a handler that inserts the appropriate security header into outgoing SOAP messages.
