Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) is an account/identity provisioning and reconciliation software and is part of Oracle Identity Management Suite. OIM comes with pre-defined connectors that are used to integrate OIM with other applications like Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Databases etc.

Note: OIM 11g+ can also be integrated with OID (or LDAP servers) using LDAPSync . More on LDAP Sync here, here, and here
This post covers an issue I encountered while provisioning an account in Microsoft Active Directory from OIM. On provisioning an Account to Microsoft Active Directory, I received an error
An error occurred because the Adapters are not compiled
Exception details: adapter not compiled: adidc populate form field adapter not compiled: adidc populate form field adapter not compiled: adidc populate form field adapter not compiled: adidc populate form field adapter not compiled: adidc populate form field adapter not compiled: adidc prepopulate user full name adapter not compiled: adidc prepopulate user full name adapter not compiled: adidc prepopulate userprincipalname

As adapters in OIM were in status “CODE GEN ERROR …”  so I attempted to compile adapters using OIM Design Console.



To compile adapter click here , Adapter compilation failed with below error in OIM managed server logs


<Oct 19, 2012 5:13:22 PM UTC> <Error> <XELLERATE.ADAPTERS> <BEA-000000> <Class/Method: tcAdpUtils/createAdapter encounter some problems: Code Generation Failed For ‘ADIDC Prepopulate User Full Name’ adapter>
<Oct 19, 2012 5:13:22 PM UTC> <Error> <XELLERATE.ADAPTERS> <BEA-000000> <Class/Method: tcAdpUtils/genXellerateAdapter encounter some problems: /tmp/oracle/oim/adapters/ (No such file or directory) /tmp/oracle/oim/adapters/ (No such file or directory)
at Method)
at com.thortech.xl.dataobj.util.tcAdpUtils.genXellerateAdapter(


Root Cause: File in /tmp/oracle was owned by different user (user other than that running OIM software).

Fix: Change permission (grant Read, Write & Execute ) on /tmp/oracle to user running OIM managed servers. After changing permission , compile adapters in OIM again using design console.
