Access Manager 11G Rel 2 and APEX 4.2

There is some documentation regarding APEX and OAM, but it is flawed. Make sure APEX functions with standard (APEX user based) security, even through OAM; this means Allow /APEX/** Allow /i/** Protect /apex/apex_authentication.callback Page 9 states "OAM_REMOTE_USER with a value of $user.userid is created by default".Not true, (more...)

Setup OUD and ODSM, and OVD/OID with ODSM

ODSM and ODSM? The version of ODSM, suitable for OUD will *not* serve OVD or OID, it is as simple as that. In fact, Oracle spends a whole chapter on installing the lot. I did follow this, but sometimes you want to explore different routes. OUD and ODSM I have (more...)

Oracle Unified Directory TNS and EUS – Part 1: TNS Resolving

Part two of OUD. Start it up # su - oracle $ /oracle/Middleware/asinst-1/OUD/bin/start-ds Just to make things happen, I shut down the firewall: # service iptables stop But at least, I can do things like: frank@ubuntu64:~$ ldapsearch -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w Welcome1 -h oud -p 1389 -b dc=home,dc=local cn=groups -LLL (more...)

Oracle Unified Directory configure

Configure the Unified Directory server /oracle/Middleware/oracle_common/common/bin/ Of course, add new domain. There's nothing yet! Select ODSM and EM; JRF will come automagically Changing the defaults Don't forget to document the passwords... Production mode; I will not develop new apps, so there's no need to scan for these - it (more...)

Oracle Unified Directory Installation

Installation and use. Having worked on a proof-of-concept which heavily depends on all sorts of Oracle Identity suites, I learned Oracle will probably dump OID (Internet Directory) and OVD (Virtual Directory) over the next 5 years in favor of Oracle Unified Directory (OUD - which means "old" in Ducth). So, (more...)

Configuring Identiy and Access Management 11GR2

In a nutshell: Start nodemenager /oracle/middleware/wlserver_10.3/server/bin/ Configure the Identity and Management Suite: /oracle/middleware/Oracle_IDM1/bin/ DO NOT START YOUR MANAGED SERVERS!!! There's an omission in the manual... You need to configure the database as security placeholder first. You do that by /oracle/middleware/oracle_common/common/bin/
