Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) can be integrated Oracle Identity Analytics (OIA) or Oracle/SAP GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance) for SoD (Segregation of Duties).

We recently implemented OIM integration with Oracle GRC (OAACG - Oracle Application Access Control Governor) for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS R12) for SoD.

EBS Responsibility Provisioning from OIM to EBS were failing with error “String index out of range: -7 SODCheck Completed with Error

Error in OIM logs reported was

  • OIM connects to OAACG module of GRC using IT Resource (defined in OIM), check screenshot below.

 

  • In GRC you define datasource and this datasource (In GRC) should match with datasource in OIM IT Resource for OAACG-ITRes 

 

Fix: If you are hitting error like above then ensure that Datasource defined in OIM IT Resource “OAACG-ITRes” should match with data source defined in GRC.
