Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) How to Configure Automatically Unlock User Job with Password Policies (Doc ID 2264030.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 24, 2023

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When integrated with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) or Oracle Adaptive Access Manage (OAAM), the users are automatically locked after a number of failed attempts.
So, how is OIM (R2 PS3) to be configured, so that the Automatically Unlock User Job works as expected.

In the old reference note "Automatic Locking and Unlocking of the Users in OAM Integrated OIM Environment (Doc ID 1496808.1)" it mentions that Lock Duration is used for OIM
- XL.UnlockAfter system parameter no longer exists in OIM

The Lock Duration refers to the Password Policies that are part of the OIM Identity UI >> Manage >> Policies >> Password Policies.

By default any Password policy including Default Policy are set to Permanent Lockout, which disables the Unlock Job.
- The user can only be unlocked by Admin Users manually when Permanent Lockout is set.
