This addon is located in the Connectors section and its name is Oracle EBS Connector.
This connector could manage only User objects.
Users created on Soffid will be created on EBS, in the same way disabled users on Soffid will be disabled on EBS.
The responsibilities that exist in EBS can be assigned to the users. They must be created like roles on Soffid System previously, with the same name that the responsibility has on EBS.
For example: FND_RESP | CSF | CSF_FS_PDA_REP | STANDARD.
After the installation of the addon, you may create and configure agent instances.
To configure this Oracle EBS Connector you must select "OracleEBudsinessAgent" in the attribute "Type" of the generic parameters section in the agents page configuration.
Below there are the specific parameters for this agent implementation:
|User||User name to authenticate|
|Oracle password||Password of the user to authenticate|
|Connection string to database||Database URL. Use something like jdbc:oracle:thin:@host:port:sid|
Pending to be documented.
After the agent configuration you could check in the monitoring page if the service is running in the Synchronization Server, please go to "Start Menu > Monitoring and reporting > System monitoring".
If you are checked "Authorized identity source", an automatic task to load identities from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Import authoritative data from <AGENT_NAME>".
If your are configured the "Attribute Mapping" tab with some of our objects: "user, account, role, group or grant", an automatic task to synchronize these objects from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Reconcile all accounts from <AGENT_NAME>".
About the synchronization of the objects, there are two possible options:
- If you are checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, only the changes in the managed systems will be updated in Soffid. We recommend this options until the global configuration of Soffid will be tested.
- If you are not checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, all the changes in Soffid or the managed system will be updated in the other. Note that this synchronization must be configured in the "Attribute mapping" tab correctly.
