ObAccessClient.lst does not contain a client id - ACCESS_GATE FATAL 0x00001824

Hi,

Problem Description :

When A new Webgate agent is registered with OAM, sometimes due to some mis-configuration it the OHS servers throws some common exception. Today I got a very uncommon exception in OHS - Webgate - OAM configuration. Below is the stack trace came in :

Solution for Above Error:

Check "ObAccessClient.xml file in 
MW_HOME/ohs/instances/instance1/config/OHS/ohs1/webgate/config

If anything is looking inappropriate, just once more copy the artifacts from OAM_RREG_HOME/output/Agent_Name/ObAccessClient.xml  to this location.
(In My case I have registered the Agents using RREG - OAM remote Registration Tool).

If that doesn't work, you have to delete the present Agent from OAM and  re-register the Agent to create the new Artifacts (cwallet.sso and ObaccessClient.xml). Copy the new Artifacts to MW_HOME/ohs/instances/instance1/config/OHS/ohs1/webgate/config

ClassCastException error during OIM- Siebel Provisioning/Reconciliation

ClassCastException error during OIM-

Siebel Provisioning/Reconciliation

OIM connector for Siebel was apparently installed successfully. But, provisioning to the Siebel resource did not go through. A careful inspection of logs reveals the notorious “ClassCastException”.
Environment: OIM 11g 11.1.1.5.0 (PS1), Siebel 8.1.1, Oracle DB 11.2.0.1, Siebel User Management Release 11.1.1, Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.6 (64 bit), WLS 10.3.5
Stacktrace
java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError cannot be cast to org.identityconnectors.framework.common.objects.ConnectorObject
Other variants:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
Investigation
This problem occurs if the required third party JARs (as noted in the connector documentation) were not successfully bundled within the connector during connector installation.
The documentation instructs one to copy siebel.jar and siebelji_enu.jar from SIEBEL_INSTALLATION_DIRECTORY/siebsrvr/CLASSES directory location and place in OIM_HOME/ConnectorDefaultDirectory/targetsystems-lib/siebel-RELEASE_NUMBER. But the downloaded third party jars size showed ridiculous 133KB (where healthy Siebel.jar ->1,295KB, SiebelJI_enu.jar -> 42KB).
Verification
1. $OIM_HOME/server/bin/DownloadJars.sh
[Enter Xellerate admin username :]xelsysadm
[Enter the admin password :]
[Enter serverURL :[ t3://localhost:7001 ]]t3://localhost:14000
[Enter context Factory :[ weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory ]]
Enter the jar type
  1.JavaTasks
  2.ScheduleTask
  3.ThirdParty
  4.ICFBundle
4 <——————————— Choose 4 for SiebelConnectorBundle here
Enter the full path of the download directory :

/tmp
Enter the name of jar file to be downloaded from DB :
org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar <—————– The name of the SiebelApps bundle
Do u want to download more jars [y/n] :n
Download jar executed successfully
2. Create a new Directory and name it Siebel_Jar. Unzip the downloaded org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar file into Siebel_Jar and check for the four required third-party JAR files which will not be present.
Your Directory Should look like :

Siebel_Jar
             |--------|
                        |----org
                        |----THIRDPARTYREADME.txt
                        |----META-INF
                        |----org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar

Solution
1. In the directory where the downloaded org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar was unzipped (ie. so you’re in the structure of the archive itself) create a sub-directory within this called: lib
2. Copy the Two External Jars i.e. (Siebel.jar and SiebelJI_enu.jar) required Siebel third-party JAR files into this new lib directory.
3. Move org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar file from this directory to another directory. Re-jar the files which now contain the third-party files in the new lib directory (the following command assumes you’re in the same directory(Siebel_Jar) where the original jar was unzipped in to and you’ve moved the original JAR file from this directory so it doesn’t end up in the new archive):
Now Your Directory should look like:
Siebel_Jar
             |--------|
                        |----org
                        |----THIRDPARTYREADME.txt
                        |----META-INF
                        |----lib
 Now Run the command below.
jar cvfm org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar META-INF/MANIFEST.MF *
(note the use of the existing MANIFEST.MF file as OIM will check for this)
4. Upload this new updated JAR file back into the database:
$OIM_HOME/server/bin/UploadJars.sh
[Enter Xellerate admin username :]
[Enter Xellerate admin username :]xelsysadm
[Enter the admin password :]
[Enter serverURL :[ t3://localhost:7001 ]]t3://localhost:14000
[Enter context Factory :[ weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory ]]
Enter the jar type
   1.JavaTasks
   2.ScheduleTask
   3.ThirdParty
   4.ICFBundle
4 <———————— again choose option 4 here for the SiebelConnectorBundle
Enter the path/location of jar file :
/tmp/jars/ org.identityconnectors.siebel-1.0.1.jar <—————– The name of the SiebelApps bundle
Do u want to load more jars [y/n] :n
Upload jar executed successfully
5. Restart OIM and retest provisioning and monitor logs.

XELSYSADM user account locked or reset the password for the XELSYSADM account in OIM 11G.

How to reset the password for the XELSYSADM account in OIM 11G.

Fix

The following workaround can be used to reset the xelsysadm password:

1. In USR table using SQL Developer, manually copy the "xeloperator's" or "Group Operator's" encrypted password to xelsysadm user's password column and commit (Use Ctl-C and Ctrl-V).

2. Then login into admin console using username: xelsysadm and password as : xeloperator

The default password for "xeloperator's" or "Group Operator's" is xeloperator

3. If Set up Security Questions Screen Appears then again reset password for xelsysadm via oim console for the password change to get propagated.

 Note: When OIM is integrated with OAM having LDAP sync, this note doenst apply there as the passwords are in the LDAP not in the OIM DB.

Web Services



                                                       Web Services helps to make simple code,  a web application which can be accessed through any language. If there is need of synchronizing a .NET Based application with an application which was build in JAVA, by using the webservices in that Java Application it can be synchronized easily. The JAVA application will expose a WSDL file  (Web Service Description Language) for exposing the code remotely to a .NET based application. The WSDL file an XML file used as communication medium between these application. So in that way any application can communicate with numerous application independent of the platform (Linux, Windows, Macintosh, Android) and languages (Java, .Net, PHP).

In Simple, Web-Services are the secured way to access remote Data without exposing the client's code or any remote code.

For e.g: If you don't have any website's username and password (like yahoo mail)- now a days you can login using FACEBOOK credentials and Facebook will ask for permissions to provide credentials to YAHOO.Here yahoo is using a web-service to access the Facebook database and Facebook is giving access to Yahoo through web service remotely without exposing any data and code to Yahoo.

There are two ends in web Services :-  
First :  The Web Service Host where the actual code and data resides. 
Second : The web Service Client where the stubs(programs) are generated using the Web Service Host's URL or XML file also known as WSDL file (Web Service Description Language).

So in my Example here Facebook will be the Web Service Host and Yahoo being the Web Service Client.

How Web Services Work:

The four major components on which web services works are :

1. SOAP  : Simple Object Access Protocol. More on this: http://www.w3schools.com/soap/soap_intro.asp
2. HTTP   : Hyper Text Type Protocol : More on this : http://www.tutorialspoint.com/http/what_is_http.htm
3. WSDL  : Web Service Description Language : More on this http://www.tutorialspoint.com/wsdl/wsdl_introduction.htm
4. UDDI    : Universal Decsription Discovery and Integration. More on this : http://www.w3schools.com/wsdl/wsdl_uddi.asp


There are different ways to use Web - Services. The usage depends on requirements and also depends on the Hosting Server. The different types of web services are listed below

1. RestFul
2. SOAP Based

1. RestFul Web-Services:

 In the web services world, REpresentational State Transfer (REST) is a key design idiom that embraces a stateless client-server architecture in which the web services are viewed as resources and can be identified by their URLs. Web service clients that want to use these resources access a particular representation by transferring application content using a small globally defined set of remote methods that describe the action to be performed on the resource. REST is an analytical description of the existing web architecture, and thus the interplay between the style and the underlying HTTP protocol appears seamless.
The HTTP methods such as GET and POST are the verbs that the developer can use to describe the necessary create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) actions to be performed. Some may see an analogy to operations in SQL, which also relies on a few common verbs, as shown in Table 1. However, the REST style and HTTP protocol are mutually exclusive, and REST does not require HTTP.
                                          Image Courtesy : http://wink.apache.org/documentation/1.0/html/1%20Introduction%20to%20Apache%20Wink.html 

2. SOAP Based:

A SOAP-based design may be appropriate when
  • A formal contract must be established to describe the interface that the web service offers. The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) describes the details such as messages, operations, bindings, and location of the web service.
  • The architecture must address complex nonfunctional requirements. Many web services specifications address such requirements and establish a common vocabulary for them. Examples include Transactions, Security, Addressing, Trust, Coordination, and so on. Most real-world applications go beyond simple CRUD operations and require contextual information and conversational state to be maintained. With the RESTful approach, developers must build this plumbing into the application layer themselves.
  • The architecture needs to handle asynchronous processing and invocation. In such cases, the infrastructure provided by standards such as WSRM and APIs such as JAX-WS with their client-side asynchronous invocation support can be leveraged out of the box.

OIM 11G : Using Flat File as Trusted Resource for Reconciliation of Users.

Steps

1. CREATE SHARED DRIVE, CSV AND ARCHIVE
2. CREATE GENERIC CONNECTOR
3. RUN SCHEDULER AND CONFIRM
4. CREATING RULE GENERATORS
5. CREATING RECONCILATION PROFILE
6. RUN SCHEDULER
7. SEARCH RECONCILIED USER

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. CREATE SHARED DRIVE, CSV AND ARCHIVE

    Create a directory Archive in C:\myDIR\HRFEED\

  

Create a csv file, name it hrfeed.csv and place it in C:\myDIR\HRFEED\ with file containing below details.
  


2. CREATE GENERIC CONNECTOR

    Login to sysadmin page of OIM with url

    http://localhost:14000/sysadmin

    place your hostname and port accordingly.



    Enter OIM user name and password and sign in to OIM sysadmin console



  Click on Generic Connector link in the Left Pane

Click on Create to create a new Generic Connector.
 

 Populate the fields as given below, uncheck provisioning and continue.


Now Specify Correct parameters in step 2 and continue.





Now in step 3 a pop-up will get displayed showing the mapping between your flat file attributes with OIM.

Here we require two new attributes in Reconciliation Staging table to map it with OIM Table.

Click on + icon in Reconciliation Staging table to add new attributes.


Fill all details as given below and click continue.

  

  


Repeat above steps to create userType attribute in Reconciliation Staging Table.




 


Now it's time to map Reconciliation Staging Table to OIM table.
Click on the edit button of UserLogin Attribute of OIM table and click continue to map.


 

 After mapping each and every attribute we will get following matching lines.

Click close to jump into step 5.



Click save and wait for some time

Find and open OIM_FlatFile_Recon_GTC and click Run now button.



Confirm job is running.



Go to oim_server terminal and watch for the error. If you receive the same error, then you need to configure the newly created GTC.



4. CREATING RULE GENERATORS

Design Console Configuration Needed . If it is already configured then continue to the below steps or configure design console using following link

http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2010/10/11/part-vii-install-configure-oim-design-console-oracleidm-11g-step-by-step-installation-of-oam-oim-oaam-oapm-oin/

To debug the above error we need to create rule generators for the newly created GTC.

Open design console from windows start menu

or alternatively you can also start by going to path

MIDDLEWARE_HOME\Oracle_IDM1\designconsole\xlclient

Login to design console with OIM user name and password.


Click and open resource object form, from left panel, and click query button from toolbar, then go to resource objects table tab. In this step we will confirm that the newly created connector appears in database records.


Click on OIM_FlatFile_Recon_GTC record and open Resource Objects Tab


Select and Copy name field.


Now open Reconciliation Rule form and paste the copied resource object name in previous step into Object field and click on Query icon.


If no record message appears, we will create a new one, a new Rule for flat file reconciliation.


So to create a rule, populate fields as below and save it.


Click on Add Rule Element button.

Fill up the fields as below and save it.


Close the error message and exit.


Click yes to exit.


Click save and close the error message if any.
