HOW TO: Import hierarchical applications data (OIA)

  This article has been designed with the understanding that you know a more than basic knowledge of OIA meaning you have experience in data imports. My goal here is to express the mandatory requirements along with some best practice on importing account.

Creating an OIA ETL JPP scheduler

  After implementing OIA on a number of real-world engagements, Ive slowly grown tired of the 3rd party clover ETL scheduler configured OOTB for data imports. From my experience, many organizations have a centralized ETL framework for manipulations so theres no logical justification to segregate OIAs required ETL efforts. But what if theyre missing an ETL framework? Were talking about the minority of companies here though heres an alterative to scheduling imports into OIA.

Deploying OIM and OIA on the same domain

  Around 1 year ago I came across this issue and could not find a solution. 16-ish months later and I've solved how to have OIA and OIM 11g residing on the same admin domain though on separate managed servers.

Enable Exclusion of Roles Tab within OIA

  OOTB, the exclusion roles page are hidden within OIA. Enabling the exclusion tab is essential to begin configuring the preventative SOD's within OIA

  This article focuses on the preventative segregation of duties (SODs) as a feature within OIA.

Preventative SOD between access policies

  The intention here is highlight the policy violations and demonstrate the preventative SOD enforcements between policies. In this example, the word 'preventative' is used loosely. There are clear indications on the SOD enforcements though maybe not as expected.

HOW TO: Increase the OIA globaluser display search limit from 500

  By default, OIA will only display a maximun 500 Records. I have commonly worked with a high number of identities within OIA. Because of this, I have often had to increase the total value of identities (globalusers) displayed within the OIA GUI. Here is how to increase this value.

OIA data import: java.io.IOException (line 0)

HOW TO: create a GTC Flat file HR import (Trusted Recon)

  With the intention to import many flat files in the future, I have created a stagingDR directory (with my initials included knowing that if I forget in the future, I know I created that) and within that directory I created another directory called Imports. This is where I will be dropping my data feed so OIM can acknowledge the file and import it.

Starting up OIM managed server: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

  Most people you will come across understand that the java arguments -ms, -mx, PermSize, MaxPermSize etc. need to be set in order for there to be sufficient java memory allocation for Oracle Identity Manager 11g to run. OIM 11g compared to OIM 10g requires a tremendous amount of java allocation. More often than not, when you're running your job schedulers, process forms, or even starting up the system, you may experience "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space". No worries, here are the simple steps to resolve the issue.

HOW TO: Install Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition

  Here are the steps to install OBIEE (Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition) 11g though I purposely installed Oracle Business intelligence so I can use BI publisher 11g, which is simply 1 of many products that comes packaged within OBIEE.

HOW TO: Startup BI Publisher

  The high level steps required to startup BI publisher and OBIEE 11g

Bi Publisher - ORA-28001 mds-owsm password expired

The DBMS driver exception was: ORA-28001: the password has expired

Unable to login to BI publisher as administrator

  So I installed the new version of bi publisher 11g and was presented with the typical welcome screen. The this is, I didn't know the credentials for admin access. The old 10g was Administrator/Administrator though the access control has now been locked down within the new version of bi publisher.

BI Publisher: Server not initialized. please make sure the repository is ready

  I noticed that when I go to the bi publisher screen, I received an immediate 'Server not initialized. please make sure the repository is ready'. here are the steps required to resolve this.

ORA-01400 - cannot insert NULL into ("SCHEMA"."TABLE_NAME"."COLUMN_NAME")

  Whilst importing accounts into OIA via a flat file feed, you check the progress within the import/Export logs then you're presented with the ERROR exception level with the UTTER USELESS description of 'Unable to import accounts'

Bi Publisher 11g (OBIEE) ORA-00905: missing keyword

  Like most developers would typically do, I created a more comprehensive Oracle SQL code outside the realms of the bi Publisher with the intention on importing this directly into BI publisher thus creating a pre-defined data model for my custom report.

BI Publisher Error: Data Model does not contain sample data. Please edit Data Model and save with sa

  Within BI Publisher (OBIEE), I created a data model by using the SQL query and connecting it to the database though after using this for the report creation

OBIEE BI Publisher: Server not initialized. Please make sure the repository is ready.

  I came across this issue, when I started up the Weblogic instance and navigated to the BI URL

HOW TO: Configure OIA 11g Remediation Tracking

  The oracle documentation has not published the configuration steps to setup the remediation tracking within OIA.

OIA ERROR: IDCUserEntitlementSummary: / by zero

  Whilst creating and accessing the certification within OIA, I experienced this warning.

HOW TO: Configure Bi Publisher in CSV format

  The new 11g Bi Publisher has changed substantially as Oracle has provided a more lightweight approach, which all in all has it's benefits, though from a developers perspective has changed to the approach completely.

HOW TO: Startup bi publisher 11g from scratch

  I have collected a compilation of 'how to startup bi publisher' though to also proceed with the troubleshooting process if BI publisher is unavailable.

Cannot access analytics URL within bi publisher (Bieehome)

  When I completed a fresh install of BI publisher and the BIEE home, I noticed I was getting an 'unable to login to Bi Publisher error

Bi Publisher [Security:090302]Authentication Failed: User BISystemUser denied

  After troubleshooting bi publisher and creating the blog *****, I was experiencing further issues that 'BISystemUser' was being denied.

ISSUE: Unable to access Bi Publisher: Login failed, please retry.

  I came across this issue in previous installments however I was boggling for a couple of days without a solution. I did however manage to get this resolved on the 3rd day though never recorded what I changed in order to get this working. Now I'm in the same position, I am adamant to find the solution once more, and here it is. (Though I ended with a different result this time)

BI Publisher - Could not create pool connection. ORA-28001: the password has expired

  After refreshing my VM environment and tried to startup Weblogic to run Bi publisher, I was experiencing the following error and subsequently failing to startup bi publisher.

ORA-00907: missing Right parenthesis within bi publisher

  When creating the a SQL query within SQL developer and executing it successfully, When I transferred it over to bi publisher to create a data model for the report, I was getting the ORA-00907: missing right parenthesis error

HOW TO: Create a line-delimited file within Bi Publisher using SQL query data set

  I am bringing back two columns, Username and Inactive. I want to convert my SQL query returning 2 columns by a comma delimited into a line-delimiter. The intention here is to loop through each column, for each row, and display this in a line-delimited format

HOW TO: create a .txt (text) file within bi publisher 11g

  This was a nightmare to understand, though incredibly easy to create. The oracle documentation is somewhat convoluted to the point where I extracted various information from multiple websites to help me with building eText intuitively.

Adding Current Date within Bi Publisher 11g

  You will notice within the BI publisher design, there are OOTB page elements available such as 'page break', 'Total Pages', 'Page Number' though there's possibility to expand out to further functionality, which is annoying because the simplest function you wish to use, such as 'current date' or 'timestamp', which are not available.

HOW TO: Import a xml file as a dataset (Alternative) - Bi Publisher 11g

  I have been trying for hours now to create a dataset within BiP 11g by importing in an XML file. There seems to be a lot of information around XML files for the 10g version of BiP, though no acknowledgement that importing XML files as data sets is available for the 11g version. Long story short, I have my doubts that this 11g version is even possible.
