Using DIP 12c (Configured Without a Database) to Synchronize Passwords from Active Directory to ODSEE With Bi-Directional (On-Demand & Password Translate) Synchronization (Doc ID 2543849.1)

Last updated on MAY 03, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version and later
Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 This document goes over the steps to configure password synchronization between Active Directory and Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (ODSEE) using Directory Integration Platform (DIP) 12c with On-Demand configuration (AD to ODSEE) and Password Translate configuration (ODSEE to AD).

This KM doc can be used to configure synchronization from either -
- AD to ODSEE (On-Demand),
  -- or --
- ODSEE to AD (Password Translate),
  -- or --
- Bi-Directionally using both On-Demand and Password Translate.

Since an Oracle database is not needed for DIP 12c or ODSEE, the example in this KM doc goes over the steps to synchronize passwords between AD and ODSEE using DIP 12c without a database.

If an Oracle database is already installed or if wanting to use an Oracle Database for the DIP 12c installation, refer to -
