OIM 11gR2 - Newly Added Roles Are Not Showing Up In The Catalog (After Running the Catalog Synchronization job) And Cannot Be Assigned To Users (Doc ID 1534930.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 11, 2021

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The goal of this knowledge document is to explain a common problem that occurs after importing roles into OIM 11gR2 and then trying to assign the roles to users via the console.

The problem is, the roles you've imported into OIM are not visible in the catalog in the OIM console. You can see the roles in the roles screen when you search for them, but in terms of adding these roles to users (which requires you to select the roles from the catalog in the UI), the roles are not showing up. This applies to entitlements and application instances as well.

The reason for this usually relates to the fact that the Catalog Synchronization Scheduled Task has not been run (or run with the necessary/correct parameters).
