OIM 11g Provides a few default policies for generating a unique User ID. The policies is specified in the System Properties.
This property specifies the code used for the default User Name Policy. This code is contained in ./Oracle_IDM1/server/apps/oim.ear/APP-INF/lib/OIMServer.jar XL.DefaultUserNamePolicyImpl = oracle.iam.identity.usermgmt.impl.plugins.DefaultComboPolicy This property specifies the domain name that will be appended to the User Name if it is specified. for all default policies except the EmailIdPolicy it is automatically appended. XL.UserNameDomain = oracle.com
The DefaultComboPolicy will run one of the 3 policies below depending on what values are contained in the record. Any failure will stop the generation process.
e.g. A duplicate that cannot be resolved if the "Email" is specified will stop the whole process. it will not try to continue with the FirstNameLastNamePolicy.
EmailIdPolicy - if "Email" is contained in the recon. uses the recon Email value. Checks for duplicate userId Duplicates are resolved by incrementing the user part of the email. e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com max increment is 2147483647 the email address must be a valid email. If "Email" is not present. FirstNameLastNamePolicy - if "First Name" and "Last Name" are present start with first.last@UserNameDomain (if usernamedomain is present) checks for duplicate userid if duplicate try again with "Middle Name" if available if no "Middle Name" or "Middle Name" still produces a duplicate start using random letters from a-z e.g. first.last or first.mi.last or first.randomletter.last UserNameDomain is appended if present. UserNameDomain is always included in the duplicate check LastNamePolicy - if only the "Last Name" is present. same as above but first name is not used
Other Supplied Policies.
FirstInitialLastNamePolicy same as firstNameLastName Policy except only the first name initial is used. LastNameFirstInitialPolicy same as firstNameLastName Policy except only the first name initial is used. LastNameFirstNamePolicy same as firstNameLastName Policy except names are reversed
Any of the other policies can be specified by replacing the System Property and either running the PurgeCache.sh script or restarting the server.
