Oracle Identity Manager: Administration and Implementation

Description: The Oracle Identity Manager: Administration and Implementation course covers how to install the product and use it to manage company’s users, organizational units, resources and privileges. This includes the five fundamental actions an administrator performs with a resource-related account: creating, disabling, reinstating, modifying, and deleting the account. Students also learn how Oracle Identity Manager retrieves user and organizational records from both trusted and nontrusted sources, including how to implement workflows to detect rogue accounts from nonauthorized resources. Students then create reports in Oracle Identity Manager that capture users present and life cycle relationships with resources. Next, students set up, create, manage, and review an attestation workflow, from end-to end. This workflow notifies reviewers of a report they must review to verify users have access to the appropriate resources and privileges within these resources. Lastly, students learn how to customize the look and feel and functionality of Oracle Identity Manager, as well as modify its code to extend its capabilities.
