Last updated on DECEMBER 07, 2022

Applies to:

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

As stated on the Password Sync Connector Manual, paragraph 2.1.5 (Configuring the Connector for Oracle Identity Governance 12c (

"Configure a new administrative user in the connector. For example, admin1. Ensure that the new user exists in Oracle Identity Governance with appropriate permissions, including Admin Role"

  Is there anything else apart from that?
