OIM: Sample code to Publish roles to Organizations

                   This post covers a sample OIM code that publishes the roles to specific organization provided through inputs. 

Our example code performs the following operations
  • Publish APP_USER to new Organization "Google" and set "include sub-orgs" flag to False.
  • Publish APP_USER to existing Organization "Microsoft" and set "include sub-orgs" flag to True.
  • Remove APP_USER from existing Organization "Yahoo" 
Initial role configuration in OIM before update: 

  • OIM
  • OEL/RHEL 6

After updating through code, APP_USER role will be updated as shown below:

OAM: Enable White Listing mode

                       We are going to cover about the commands that can be used to enable White listing of URLs in OAM and enable it on OAM Protected applications. This white listing of URLs helps to avoid re-directions to external sites/URLs that are not registered with OAM.

  • OAM
  • RHEL6/OEL6

      Enabling and configuring White-listing  mode is very simple and just requires the following acitivites.
  1. Enable OAM White listing Mode
  2. Adding/Removing URLs to/from the list of White listed URLs
1. Enable OAM White listing Mode:
  • Login to the server that contains installation of OAM component
  • Browse to the following directory
    • <Oracle_IDM_Home>/common/bin
  • Execute the following commands
    • ./
    • connect('weblogic','password','t3://oamhost:7001'>)
    • domainRuntime()
    • oamSetWhiteListMode(oamWhiteListMode="true")
  • This returns the success message as shown below.

2. Adding/Removing URLs to/from the list of White listed URLs :
  • Execute the below command to add a URL to the list
    • oamWhiteListURLConfig(Name="google",Value="",Operation="Update")  

  • Execute the below command to remove a URL from the list
    • oamWhiteListURLConfig(Name="google",Value="",Operation="Remove") 

  • We can validate the behaviour during the logout process of any protected application with OAM Logout URL. For example, Add a URL like "" to white list and  invoke the following Logout URL which has end_url parameter with the URL
    • http://<OHSHost:7777/oamsso/logout.html?end_URL=
  • After successful logout, above URL will redirect you back to "" as it is trusted URL.
  • You can validate by removing the same URL from the White Listed URLs list and invoke logout again. Then OAM will just log you out but will not redirect the user to ""
Thanks for visiting.
