Oracle on 21st July, released Identity Management 11gR1 for OAM, OIM, OAAM & OIN (new component introduced in 11gR1) . This post covers very high level steps to install and configure OIM & OAM 11g (detailed step by step instructions coming soon…)  

  • For those who are new to Oracle Identity Management, check this post here for list of  products which comes under Oracle’s Identity Management stack.

A. OAM : Oracle Access Management (product for access management and web Single Sign-On).

B. OIM : Oracle Identity Manager (product for Identity provisioning, reconciliation and management)


High Level Steps for OIM & OAM 11g installation
1)Install Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3 (aka Oracle WebLogic 11g R1 PS2)

2) Install Oracle Database ( or 11.2.X+)

3)Run RCU (Repository Creation Utility) and load schemas
a) For OIM: Select Identity Management – Oracle Identity Manager, SOA Infrastructure schema, the User Messaging Service schema, and the Metadata Services .
b) For OAM : Identity Management – Oracle Access Manager, AS Common Schema – Audit Services.

  • For more information on RCU click here
  • More information on loading schema for OAM/OIM here

4) For Identity Manager only, install SOA (11gR1 PS1) and upgrade it to R1 PS2)
Note* For SOA is patchset only where as is base software.
Note* If you want just OAM (Oracle Access Manager) : SOA 11g is not required.

5) Install Oracle Identity Management 11g R1 (This step will create ORACLE_HOME for Identity Management- OIM & OAM)

  • For more information on MW_HOME, ORACLE_HOME DOMAIN_HOME click here

6. Run $ORACLE_HOME/common/bin/ (where ORACLE_HOME is directory under MW_HOME for OIM & OAM binaries) to configure your Oracle Identity Management products (OIM & OAM) .

This step will create weblogic domain and deploy applications related to OIM , OAM & OIN.

7. Install WebGates for OAM on HTTP servers which you wish to protect using OAM.
