I've spent the day going through and planning the disk environment for a HA deployment of OIM, OAM, OPAM and OVD. There really isn't a very good reference on this topic, there are a couple of publications from Oracle: the Oracle Fusion Middleware Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle Identity Management, and the Oracle Identity Management 11.1.2 Enterprise Deployment Blueprint that have some good information but these documents do need to be updated to reflect the most recently supported WebLogic server (10.3.6).
HI + IM = Nulli
Nulli experts share their Human Information + Identity Management knowledge
For those of us that have run the Oracle Identity Manager config, you have probably noticed a small checkbox on the OIM Server screen called "Enable LDAP Sync" and asked yourself: Hmmm, I wonder what that does?
Oracle has just released an updated version of its Identity Management 11.1.2 Enterprise Deployment Blueprint and I must say, this is tremendous effort from Oracle to fill in some of the gaps in its documentation. It is nice to have a single place to go to for the steps that are required for setting up OAM and OIM to work together in a clustered, highly available design.
Back in the days of OAM 10g there was a set of 13 standard reports that Oracle made available for BI Publisher. These old reports can be found at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/id-mgmt/oam-reports-1-132943.zip. I am now on the search for reports for OAM 11gR2. There are signs of hope, Oracle's license for OAM includes a Restricted Use License for BI Publisher.
For many years, Oracle has provided a well documented OAM SSO solution for PeopleSoft using typical header variable integration. However, PeopleBooks for PeopleTools 8.51 has become so, shall we say, refined, it's now harder to acheive success with such time-tested integration steps.
While preparing to install OAM 11g, some of us were curious whether all the "ob..." attributes would remain intact or if they would be renamed with, for instance, an "orcl..." prefix. It struck one of my colleagues that the "ob" attributes would survive, if only to facilitate a workable upgrade path or to ease product development.
SAML Service coming back to OAM in a future release?

Panel tabs in OAM, how are they used?
