Creating New Users and Groups on Fusion Applications
Here we try to the tasks of New Users and Groups creation that implementers perform to get started with an implementation of Oracle Fusion Applications.
These are the first steps in the implementation process after installation and provisioning of Oracle Fusion Applications.
The doc covers the basic requirements needed to create initial implementation users.
With Fusion Application, the release with unified suite of business applications, Users are managed via Oracle Identity Manager (OIM). In this exercise, you use Oracle Directory Services Manager to add a user and a group to Oracle Internet Directory.
To get started with Oracle Fusion Applications implementation, you need access to Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), and Oracle Fusion Applications.
Before you begin, make sure you have the following information:
URLs for Oracle Fusion Applications and OIM
The Oracle Fusion Applications URL : http://host/homePage/faces/AtkHomePageWelcome
URLs are recorded in a file whose default name is Provisioning Summary. The file is created in the same location as the provisioning plan.
Login Details for FAADMIN or XELSYSADM Users
Ensure you have the required SYSADMIN access such as FAADMIN or XELSYSADM(The user name and password of the Oracle Fusion Applications super user and the OIM system administrator user).
The default user name of the Oracle Fusion Applications super user is FAADMIN. (FAADMIN/**********)
The default OIM system administrator user name is XELSYSADM. (weblogic_idm/**********)
Location of the Oracle home directory in the Oracle Identity Management (IDM) environment (IDM_ORACLE_HOME)
Let’s take a quick look at how a New User can be created using Oracle Directory Manager Services.
You need access to an instance of Oracle Directory Services Manager and to an Oracle Internet Directory instance.
Adding User Entries
Now we will go on with the process of creating a user and assigning a password.
1. Access Oracle Directory Services Manager.
Invoke Oracle Directory Services Manager in one of the following ways:
• To invoke Oracle Directory Services Manager from Fusion Middleware Control, select an Oracle Internet Directory or an Oracle Virtual Directory component, select Directory Services Manager from the Oracle Internet Directory or Oracle Virtual Directory menu in the Oracle Internet Directory target, then select the specific screen in Oracle Directory Services Manager. Oracle Directory Services Manager displays the connection dialog for the same Oracle Internet Directory or Oracle Virtual Directory instance.
• To invoke Oracle Directory Services Manager directly:
Enter the following URL into your browser’s address field:
In the URL to access Oracle Directory Services Manager, host is the name of the managed server where Oracle Directory Services Manager is running. port is the managed server port number from the WebLogic server.
You can determine the exact port number by examining the $Fusion_Middleware_Home/Oracle_Identity_Management_domain/servers/wls_ods/data/nodemanager/wls_ods1.url file, where Fusion_Middleware_Homerepresents the root directory where Fusion Middleware is installed.
When the Oracle Directory Services Manager home page appears, click the small arrow to the right of the label Click to connect to a directory.
2. From the task selection bar, select Data Browser.
3. On the toolbar, click the Create a new entry icon. The Entry Properties page of the Create New Entry wizard appears.
4. Click the Add icon next to Object Class. The Add Object Class dialog box appears.
5. In the Add Object Class dialog box, search for, then select, the inetOrgPerson object class.
6. Click OK. This returns you to the Create New Entry wizard.
8. Click Next. The Mandatory Properties dialog appears.
9. Enter <UserName> in the cn text box and <SirName> in the sn text box.
10. Select cn in the Relative Distinguished Name list as the property to use as the RDN.
11. Click Next. The entry is created.
12. Click Finish.
13. Select the UserName created (vinodtalluri) entry in the data tree. (You can search for it to save time.)
14. Click the Attributes tab.
15. Click the icon under Optional Attributes to manage which optional attributes are shown. In the All Attributes list, select userPassword, then click Move to move it into the Shown Attributes list. Click Add Attributes.
16. A userPassword text box now appears under Optional Attributes in the username (vinodtalluri) entry.
17. Enter a password in the Password text box.
18. Click Apply.
Now we will go on with Creating another user, as follows:
1. Select the UserName (vinodtalluri)entry in the data tree.
2. On the toolbar above the entry click the Create a new entry line this one icon. The Entry Properties page of the Create New Entry: Create Like wizard appears.
3. Use the same object classes and parent that you used for previous user.
Click Next. The Mandatory Properties dialog appears.
4. Enter a user name (ibiz) in the cn text box and the user’s surname (bangalore) in the sn text box.
5. Select cn in the Relative Distinguished Name list as the property to use as the RDN.
6. Click Next.
7. The Optional Properties dialog appears. Enter userPassword for the user.
8. Click Next. Click Finish.
9. Select the new user’s entry in the data tree.
Creating A Static Group and Adding Members
Now we will go on with the process of creatinga group and adding the users created (vinodtalluri and ibiz) to the group.
To add a static group entry:
1. From the task selection bar, select Data Browser.
2. On the toolbar, click the Create a new entry icon. The Entry Properties page of the Create New Entry wizard appears.
5. Click OK. This returns you to the Create New Entry wizard.
6. In the Parent of the entry field, type the full DN of the parent entry, for example cn=groups,dc=ibizsoft,dc=com.
You can also click the Browse button to locate the DN of the parent for this entry.
14. Select the DN of first user created (ibiz).
15. Click OK.
16. Do the same for another user (vinodtalluri).
17. Click OK.
18. Click Apply.
We are done with creating a couple of users for fusion applications and assigning them to a newly created group.
