Management X Manager both are OIM concepts:
Let's start from the very beginning: OIM is one product that you can control 'user and group resources' as Active Directory users , Database users and OID users and groups. So, OID is not part of OIM(Oracle Identity Manager_). Maybe you are talking about the first concept that comes with Oracle application server , OID, DAS and SSO. All these products were called OIM(Oracle Identity Management_).
OIM is one WebApp deployed into AppServer with some client pieces(eg: Design Console, Remote Manager) , if needed.
OID is one LDAP.
Basically the standard control that you can do here is:
Have these tasks:
1)create user,update user,create group,update group,assignUserToGroup controled by OIM.
2) THen OIM has an 'integration' with OID, using LDAPSYNC or having OID Connector: http://thiagoleoncio.blogspot.com/2013/01/oid-sync-vs-oim-connector-into-oim-11g.html
3) WebCenter Portal is 'connected with LDAP(OID)'.
We are thinking at first some basics operation like if you are the admin you can create some user, assign roles and groups etc. All this without going to the OID Console. All this within our portal.
I know there are more than one approach I could take. Right now I am thinking to create our customs java classes in order to connect to the LDAP using the provided API.
1) Do a class that have all ldapqueries to do whatever you want.
2) Do this integration above, then it will be much more easy to do this tasks and no develop part needed from user creation point of view.
I hope this helps you a bit,
Thanks for your answer and for clarifying certain points. However,
I am not using OIM. We just have installed OID and that's it. There is one library called ldapjclnt11.jar. Apparently, in there is all what I need thus I just need to connect to the LDAP, create/update entries, search, etc. Nothing more complex because that I going to be used for some functionality of our portal.
I think its kind of confusing all the technologies involved. The reason I wrote in this forum was because OID was included in OIM documentation. But I am not using OIM.
