Oracle Role Manager – Polyarchy anyone?
Oracle acquired this word “polyarchy” when they acquired the Role Manager product. I’m not too sure why they kept the term, perhaps it was to differentiate themselves from the crowd, or was there another motivation?
At any rate, if you have a “Reporting Organization” Hierarchy in ORM, the Integration Library allows you to place folks in the same Organization. e.g. You have an Organization “Xellerate Users” in OIM and “Xellerate Users” in “Organizations & People-> Reporting Organizations”, the Integration Library will create this user and place them in the correct Org in both product.
What happens if you are leveraging the Polyarchy? How can you put someone in multiple hierarchies using the Integration Library? This is my quest of the day…
