LDAP full name is Lightweight Directory Access Protocol . The Oracle Fusion/Cloud application provides access to this directory. This can be compared to an Oracle cloud LDAP directory. The Oracle Fusion LDAP server is responsible for the Oracle Fusion Application user accounts and Role Information. This LDAP directory contains all of the User-related information.
In Oracle Cloud, how does LDAP work?
All Oracle application user accounts information, as well as the responsibilities given to these user accounts, are handled via LDAP. The LDAP directory has all of these types of information handling. All of these things happen in the LDAP directory when we establish User Accounts and assign responsibilities to existing users, so this does not mean that we do this step outside of the Oracle Cloud application. All of these things happen in the same applications but in different directories.
So, once we create a new user or assign new roles to an existing user, we must send this information continuously from the LDAP directory to the Oracle Fusion application so that everything is in sync and on the same page. For this reason, Oracle Cloud recommends running the “Run User and Roles Synchronization Process” at all times.
Run User and Roles Synchronization Process
Retrieve Latest LDAP Changes process is invoked by this task. Run User and Roles Synchronization Process is a job that may be performed from either an implementation project or the Setup and Maintenance work area.
How to run LDAP Process in Oracle Fusion?
We can submit LDAP process request through ‘Scheduled Process’
Steps to run LDAP Process via Scheduled Process
