Description: This course teaches participants how to create configurations to provision users with external resources, both manually and through autoprovisioning. Participants then learn about key provisioning functionalities: disabling, enabling, changing the password of, and deleting a user’s account with an external resource. Then, participants learn how to modify an Oracle Identity Manager configuration to include these functionalities.
Participants learn about the concepts of reconciliation, including how authoritative reconciliation is used to identify new user accounts on trusted sources and transfer them into Oracle Identity Manager. Similarly, participants learn how account reconciliation is used to recognize changes to user accounts on no authoritative sources and transfer these modifications into Oracle Identity Manager. In addition, participants learn how to customize their reconciliation workflows by developing and deploying plug-ins.
