It is a very common requirement from customers to have a delegated administration model that is not tied to the organizations where the administrators are placed.

Historically, OIM only supports a one-to-one relationship between Users and Organizations. However, starting with OIM 11g R2 and the introduction of the Catalog, it is possible to publish resources to one or more Organizations.

This allows to limit the visibility of the resources to only the users who need them. However, OIM 11g R2 also provides the mechanisms to delegate the administration of Users, Organizations and Resources to specific users regardless of the Organization to which those users belong.

This article describes an approach that can be used to implement a Provisioning Solution powered by OIM 11g R2 that is not necessarily tied to an organization-centric model. The intent of this design is to show our readers how to leverage the advanced features of OIM 11g R2 to implement Delegated Administration Models that are resource-centric and not organization-centric.
