Synchronize and Provision Users Between Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Identity Cloud Service


The Provisioning Bridge provides a link between
your on-premises apps and Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
Through synchronization, account data created and updated directly on the apps is pulled
into Oracle Identity Cloud Service and stored for the corresponding users.
After users are synchronized from your on-premises apps into Oracle Identity Cloud Service,
you can also use the Provisioning Bridge to manage the lifecycle of users in the apps.
This includes creating, modifying, deactivating, activating, and removing users and their profiles
across the apps. Ann Rob is a user who’s been synchronized
from Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Identity Cloud Service through the Provisioning Bridge.
When Ann goes on vacation, the Oracle Identity Cloud Service administrator can deactivates
her account. Also, because she just got a promotion, she’s
assigned to different roles and responsibilities. She’ll have the Security Administrator role,
and the the Training Administrator and timecard approver responsibilities.
The Provisioning Bridge propagates these changes into Oracle E-Business Suite.
Let’s show you how to how to do this. First, sign in to the Identity Cloud Service
console with your administrative credentials. Expand the Navigation Drawer, and then click
Applications. Click the Oracle E-Business Suite app
and then the Provisioning tab. The Associate with Provisioning Bridge area
has the Vision Provisioning Bridge that’s assigned to this app.
The Configure Connectivity area has the information that this Provisioning Bridge
requires to connect to the app as an administrator for provisioning and synchronization.
This information includes the administrator’s user name, password, and JDBC connection string.
Click Test Connectivity. If a connection to Oracle E-Business Suite
can be established, then the Connection successful message appears.
Let’s see predefined attribute mappings between the users in Oracle Identity Cloud
Service and the users in Oracle E-Business Suite.
Click Attribute Mapping. The Attribute Mapping window has attribute
mappings. These mappings include the user’s user name,
email address, activation status, and start date.
When a user is provisioned to Oracle E-Business Suite, the current date is the user’s start
date. You can add attribute mappings by clicking
Add Row. However, for this video, all required attributes are mapped.
Let’s close this window. The Select Provisioning Operations area has
the provisioning operations that are enabled or disabled for Oracle E-Business Suite.
These operations include creating, updating, activating or deactivating, and deleting a
user in Oracle E-Business Suite. The Configure Synchronization area has the
information that the Provisioning Bridge uses to synchronize with Oracle E-Business Suite.
The User Identifier list shows the Oracle Identity Cloud Service user attribute that
will be used to match the corresponding record fetched from Oracle E-Business Suite.
The Application Identifier list shows the Oracle E-Business Suite user attribute that
will match with the existing Oracle Identity Cloud Service user.
The When exact match is found list shows what will happen when a matching Oracle Identity
Cloud Service user is found for an Oracle E-Business Suite user.
For this example, Link and confirm appears in the list, so the user will be linked automatically.
The Synchronization Schedule list shows how often the Provisioning Bridge will synchronize
with Oracle E-Business Suite. Because we’re going to run the synchronization
job manually, Never appears in this list. Let’s synchronize Ann Rob along with her
roles and responsibilities from Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
Click the Import tab, and then Import. A status of Running means that the job that
Oracle Identity Cloud Service uses to synchronize Ann from Oracle E-Business Suite is running. After this synchronization is completed, the
job status changes to Succeeded. Click the Users tab.
Ann Rob was synchronized from Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
An account now exists for Ann in both Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Identity Cloud
Service. Let’s provision an Oracle E-Business Suite role and responsibility for Ann. Click Users. Ann Rob’s account, the access tab, the action menu for the Oracle E-Business Suite app, and edit. Click Add.
Select the Security Administrator role, and then OK.
Do the same to provision the time card approval responsibility to Ann.
Let’s see that this role and responsibility are provisioned to Ann in Oracle E-Business Suite. First, sign in to the Oracle E-Business Suite
console with your administrative credentials. Navigate to the Users page for Vision Enterprises,
Ann Rob’s company. Enter Ann’s user name in the User Name
field, click Go and then Update.
Verify that you see the Security Administrator role and the Time card Approval responsibility.
Let’s assign a responsibility to Ann in Oracle E-Business Suite and synchronize it
into Oracle Identity Cloud Service. Click Assign Roles.
Search for the Training Administrator responsibility, and then select it.
Enter the reason why Ann needs this responsibility. Click Save, and then Apply.
Let’s synchronize this responsibility for Ann into Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
In the Identity Cloud Service console, access he Oracle E-Business Suite app Click the Import tab, and then Import.
A status of Running appears for the job that’s used to synchronize the Training Administrator
responsibility from Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
After this responsibility is synchronized, the job status changes to Success.
Let’s see that the Training Administrator responsibility is now assigned to Ann in
Oracle Identity Cloud Service. The state of Ann’s roles and responsibilities
is synchronized between Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
Let’s use Oracle Identity Cloud Service to revoke access rights that Ann has to
both the Security Administrator role and the Training Administrator responsibility.
Click X to the right of both the role and the responsibility, and then click Save. In the Users page of the Oracle E-Business
Suite console, enter Ann’s user name. In the User Name field, click Go and then
Update. Verify that in the Roles tab of the Users
page, the status of both the role and responsibility that you revoked for Ann changed from Assigned
to Inactive. Let’s use Oracle E-Business Suite to revoke
access rights that Alice has to the time card Approval responsibility and then synchronize
this change into Oracle Identity Cloud Service. Expand the responsibility.
Enter a reason why Ann no longer needs this responsibility, enter today’s date in the active to field, click Save, and
then Apply. By entering today’s date in the field, you’re revoking the access that Ann has to the responsibility. In the Identity Cloud Service console, access the Oracle E-Business Suite app Click the Import tab, and then Import.
Verify that you see a status of Running for the synchronization job.
After the revocation of the Timecard Approval responsibility for Ann is synchronized into
Oracle Identity Cloud Service, the status of this job changes to Succeeded.
Let’s see that this responsibility isn’t assigned to Ann in Oracle Identity
Cloud Service. The state of the revocation of Ann’s roles
and responsibilities is synchronized between Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Identity
Cloud Service. Let’s use Oracle Identity Cloud Service to
revoke Ann’s access to Oracle E-Business Suite, and then verify in Oracle E-Business
Suite that her access is revoked. Select the check box for Ann Rob, click
Revoke, and then OK. In the Users page of the Oracle E-Business
Suite console, enter Ann’s user name in the User Name field, and then click Go.
Ann’s status in Oracle E-Business Suite is now Inactive.
And now you know how use the provisioning bridge to synchronize users between your on-premises
apps and Oracle Identity Cloud Service. Learn more at docs.oracle.com

How does Microsoft Azure work?


>>Microsoft Azure is a private and public
cloud platform. You may be familiar with the Azure services, the developers, and IT professionals
use to build, deploy, and manage
the applications. But how does it work? Azure uses a technology
known as virtualization. Virtualization separates
the tight coupling between a computer’s CPU and its operating system using an abstraction layer
called a hypervisor. The hypervisor emulates
all the functions of a real computer and its CPU
in a virtual machine. It can run multiple virtual
machines at the same time, and each virtual machine can run any compatible operating system
such as Windows or Linux. Azure takes this virtualization
technology and repeats it on a massive scale in Microsoft data centers
throughout the world. Each data center has many racks
filled with servers. Each server includes a hypervisor to run multiple virtual machines. A network switch provides
connectivity to the servers. One server in each rack runs a special piece of software
called a fabric controller. Each fabric controller
is connected to another special piece of software known as the orchestrator. The orchestrator is responsible for managing everything that happens in Azure including
responding to user requests. Users make requests using
the orchestrator’s web API. The web API can be called by many tools including the user interface
of the Azure portal. When a user makes a request
to create a virtual machine, the orchestrator packages
everything that’s needed, picks the best server rack, then sends the package and request to the fabric controller. Once the fabric controller has created the virtual machine, the user can connect to it. Azure makes it easy
for developers and IT professionals to be
agile when they build, deploy, and manage
their applications and services. But this agility can have
unintended consequences if unauthorized
resources are created, or if resources are left running after they’re
no longer needed. The solution to
this problem is to use Azure’s resource access
management tools as part of your organization’s
governance program. That’s the subject of
the next video in the series.

Why is ENGAGE so compelling? Listen to this Education customer give his take.


One of the main reasons I keep going to
Engage is actually to listen to the they do a lot of exposure on where the technology is heading to, which is very valuable. Customers are demanding real-time solutions and the experience is very important for the customer. Continuity on the system is very important. NETSCOUT provides real-time
visibility, trending, and forecasting which is priceless. We learn hands-on
experience where training is very valuable. My efficiency level actually
increases based on that experience. Through engage we actually meet the
people who develop those solutions. We actually work with them, with where the product is further developed based on real-world situations. I can actually connect to my production network and share some feedback, and get a conversation going with them. What I enjoy from NETSCOUT, they actually listen to the customer and work with us in enhancing the product.

Why is Attending ENGAGE so compelling? Listen to this Healthcare customer give his take


Every year I attend Engage I learn something new and it is predominantly around the workshops that you attend especially the the next release or the future product workshops. Where you get to see where the product is going and it’s usually pretty exciting. There’s always a feature or two that I’ve been waiting for or will help enrich my workflow that really gets me excited to see what’s coming down the road. They’re truly taking our feedback and offering suggestions and how we can further use the product so it’s an enrichment type of experience where you really get to understand from the technical people where the product is going. The benefit of using real customers and the presentations kind of gives you the sense that it’s just not a canned marketing presentation, it’s not a sales, its not even technical. It’s real world experiences how people have applied the product in their environment and so you can take that back and know that the product actually works. The best part of the hands-on lab is the guided experience of using the product, so you have product experts that are conducting the labs and walking you through workflows, walking you through troubleshooting techniques, and using the tool so you you get that guided approach to problem solving that might have taken you longer to figure out or you may not have gone through that workflow but with the product experts in the room it really helps build the confidence in using the tool. One of the things that I find unique about Engage is access to NETSCOUT management. I’ve been to several other technology events in my career and you just don’t get that level of access. And you don’t necessarily get the feeling that who you’re talking to is
listening to you but you certainly get that feeling and that access with NETSCOUT management. One of the more unique aspects of Engage is the customer appreciation event. What makes it great is the interaction you have with your peers you get to see the people that you’ve been at the conference with all
week you get to you know talk about what seminars or workshops that they’ve been
to and you share that experience and you just really draw upon that to further enhance what Engage is about. I value our relationship with NETSCOUT for several reasons one, they’re approachable, they listen, they’re more than willing to accept feedback, and product direction from the customer. But above that they truly do partner with the customer. They come to the table and they help solve the problem whether it’s a technical
problem or it’s a purchasing problem. They push aside the red tape and they sit down with you and they work through the issue until we have resolution.

How Westchester uses Dropbox Business | Dropbox UK | Dropbox


Tyler: In publishing, the trend is for more
established businesses to be bought by a younger, leaner, more agile company We realised, if we didn’t change, we were at risk of being consumed by all that and it was necessary for us to expand and grow Dilip: The foundation of Westchester’s expansion
is right here in India We were under pressure but the composition plant we
set up has become a global success helping us attract some of the best
talent here in India but even the best teams in the world need the right tools without which they can’t do the job properly Tyler: There’s just been a legacy of
using outdated technology like FTP as the go-to for a lot of vendors
and even you know some publishers in the space as well so by moving the Dropbox
Business we’re able to offer our clients a much more nimble, agile, and modern way
of handling the transfer of very large files that is common in the publishing
industry Dilip: We’re an international business working in different time zones working in the US, the UK, and in India For us, Dropbox Business makes it feel like we are working in one place with one workflow It’s making us more productive
without question and giving us new ways to engage with our customers’ content Tyler: The big aha moment for us was we had been working on building out a client portal
that would allow our clients to access their systems in real time so by rebuilding that portal on Dropbox as the architecture behind the scenes and using
the Dropbox APIs for file transfer we were able to expand our clients’
capabilities to manage files with version control access archives that are
stored within the system transfer gigantic files very quickly to us and vice versa and layering on top of that our own technology and understanding of publishing workflows to make something that really is a fit for our clients to make them much more efficient and make their experience with Westchester better We’re growing quickly using Dropbox to connect our business with our
customers It’s helping us scale, giving us new ways to engage with client content The right IT tools do transform business growth no doubt about it just look at us

How Google Apps Work


>>LEUNG: I’m Vivian Leung and I work at Google.
Today, we’re here to talk about Google Apps, which, if you’re not familiar with it, is
our online suite of communication and collaboration tools. I think here at Google, we’ve been
looking at ways people work with each other, communicate with each other. And we’ve found
that most of the time, we’re pretty attached to our own computers or hard drives. And being
an Internet company, we figured there must be a better way. And one of these ways is
what we call Cloud Computing. I know it sounds–it sounds a little bit geeky, but it’s really
not that complicated. Basically, all of your files and all of your information, even all
of these programs that you use are all stored, you know, online or in the cloud, as we call
it. That means you’re not attached to any single computer or hard drive. All you have
to do is be connected to the Internet and you can access these programs and files from
anywhere in the world. Let’s use an example. So, I’m in New York and my coworker is in
San Francisco and we need to work on a presentation together. In the old way, we would’ve created
a presentation, emailed as an attachment and sent it back and forth, back and forth, until
we were done. But with Google Docs for example, I can create a presentation online, share
it with my colleague, and we can actually both edit it and make changes at the same
time. And we’re working on the same actual doc, so there’s no version control and there’s
no attachments. There’s only one copy of any file that you work on. That means you can
be accessing your information and working with other people from any computer. In fact,
you can actually connect to it from any devices connected to the Internet, so, smartphones,
netbooks, laptops, you name it. And there’s nothing to download or install, you just get
online and off you go. I hope this video has been helpful, if you have any ideas on how
we can make Apps better, please let us know at this link. Thanks and happy Cloud Computing.

How Moleskine uses Dropbox Business | Dropbox UK | Dropbox


Peter: You know, every great story starts with a blank piece of paper At Moleskine, we’ve been providing millions of people with beautiful spaces to create since 1997 But with teams spread across four
different continents on four different timezones, how do you take something
made for analog and make it relevant in the digital world? Ben: So it made us think—why not create a new customer experience that involves analog and digital? With Peter in Copenhagen,
we came up with the idea of integrating Moleskine into a series of
apps something that would allow people to pick up where they left off, from their
notebooks to their mobile devices but it takes more than just a few people to
make this happen Peter: So we have been in Australia working on different concepts and me in Copenhagen
leading the project Then we had our UX team in
the US and our design and tech team in the US, Canada, and Singapore with everything being brought together
in our Milan headquarters Ben: And here’s the thing, we built our first
app without having to meet in person once Peter: Everything was done in Dropbox
Business From concept to design, to testing and building, PR and marketing, it’s an essential place for everybody to stay in sync and for everybody to contribute Ben: And by using Dropbox Business with Dropbox Paper, Zoom, and Slack we’re always working as a single team It’s our digital toolkit helping us achieve our goals faster by speeding up how we work, collaborate, and communicate Peter: Has it worked? So far, Timepage has been
downloaded two million times and our newest app, Flow is receiving a couple of hundred subscriptions a day And our analog book sales have increased ten to fifteen percent year-on-year When the right teams come together good things happen
