1 About the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Oracle Identity Manager connectors are used to integrate Oracle Identity Manager with the external and identity-aware applications. The SAP SuccessFactors connector integrates Oracle Identity Manager with the SuccessFactors target system. This chapter contains the following sections: Certified Components for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Certified Languages for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Architecture of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Use Cases Supported by the Connector Features of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector 1.1 Introduction to the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Oracle Identity Manager is a centralized identity management solution that provides self service, compliance, provisioning and password management services for applications residing on-premise or on the Cloud. The SAP SuccessFactors connector enables you to use SuccessFactors either as a managed (target) resource or as an authoritative (trusted) source of identity data for Oracle Identity Manager. Note: At some places in this guide, SAP SuccessFactors has been referred to either as the target system or as SuccessFactors. In the account management (target resource) mode of the connector, information about users created or modified directly on the target system can be reconciled into Oracle Identity Manager. This data is used to add or modify resources (that is, accounts) allocated to Oracle Identity Manager Users. In addition, you can use Oracle Identity Manager to provision or update SuccessFactors resources (accounts) assigned to Oracle Identity Manager Users. These provisioning operations performed on Oracle Identity Manager translate into the creation or updates to target system accounts. In the identity reconciliation (trusted source) mode of the connector, users are created or modified only on the target system and information about these users is reconciled into Oracle Identity Manager. 1-1

Chapter 1 Certified Components for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector 1.2 Certified Components for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector These are the software components and their versions required for installing and using the SuccessFactors connector.

Chapter 1 Architecture of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector Italian Japanese Korean Norwegian Polish Portuguese Portuguese (Brazilian) Romanian Russian Slovak Spanish Swedish Thai Turkish 1.4 Architecture of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector The SuccessFactors connector is implemented by using the Identity Connector Framework (ICF). The ICF is a component that is required in order to use Identity Connector. ICF provides basic reconciliation and provisioning operations that are common to all Oracle Identity Manager connectors. In addition, ICF provides common features that developers would otherwise need to implement on their own, such as, buffering, time outs, and filtering. ICF is distributed together with Oracle Identity Manager. Therefore, you do not need to configure or modify ICF. Figure 1-1 shows the architecture of the SuccessFactors connector. Figure 1-1 Architecture of the SuccessFactors Connector 1-3

Chapter 1 Architecture of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector The connector is configured to run in one of the following modes: Identity reconciliation Identity reconciliation is also known as authoritative or trusted source reconciliation. In this mode, the target system is used as the trusted source and users are directly created and modified on it. During reconciliation, a scheduled task invokes an ICF operation. ICF inturn invokes a search operation on the SuccessFactors Connector Bundle and then the bundle calls the OData API for reconciliation operation. The API extracts user records that match the reconciliation criteria and hands them over through the bundle and ICF back to the scheduled task, which brings the records to Oracle Identity Manager. Each user record fetched from the target system is compared with existing Oracle Identity Manager Users. If a match is found between the target system record and the Oracle Identity Manager User, then the Oracle Identity Manager User attributes are updated with changes made to the target system record. If no match is found, then the target system record is used to create an Oracle Identity Manager User. Account management Account management is also known as target resource management. In this mode, the target system is used as a target resource and the connector enables the following operations: – Provisioning Provisioning involves creating and updating users on the target system through Oracle Identity Manager. During provisioning, the adapters invoke ICF operation, ICF inturn invokes create operation on the SuccessFactors Identity Connector Bundle and then the bundle calls the target system API for provisioning operations. The API on the target system accepts provisioning data from the bundle, carries out the required operation on the target system, and returns the response from the target system back to the bundle, which passes it to the adapters. – Target resource reconciliation During reconciliation, a scheduled task invokes an ICF operation. ICF inturn invokes a search operation on the SuccessFactors Identity Connector Bundle and then the bundle calls the target system API for reconciliation operation. The API extracts user records that match the reconciliation criteria and hands them over through the bundle and ICF back to the scheduled task, which brings the records to Oracle Identity Manager. Each record fetched from the target system is compared with SuccessFactors resources that are already provisioned to Oracle Identity Manager Users. If a match is found, then the update made to the SuccessFactors record from the target system is copied to the SuccessFactors resource in Oracle Identity Manager. If no match is found, then the user ID of the record is compared with the user ID of each Oracle Identity Manager User. If a match is found, then data in the target system record is used to provision a SuccessFactors resource to the Oracle Identity Manager User. 1-4

Chapter 1 Use Cases Supported by the Connector See Also: Understanding the Identity Connector Framework in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developing and Customizing Applications for Oracle Identity Manager 1.5 Use Cases Supported by the Connector The SAP SuccessFactors application uses the Software as a Service (SaaS) model and supports full human resource lifecycle functions on a single platform. The SAP SuccessFactors application allows an organization to make various data-driven people management decisions. The SAP SuccessFactors connector integrates Oracle Identity Manager with SuccessFactors application. The SAP SuccessFactors connector standardizes service processes and implements automation to replace manual tasks. The SuccessFactors connector enables you to use SuccessFactors either as a managed (target) resource or as an authoritative (trusted) source of identity data for Oracle Identity Manager. Multiple instances of SuccessFactors solution can use a single connector bundle. User Management is an example scenario which the SuccessFactors connector facilitates: User Management An organization using SuccessFactors wants to integrate with Oracle Identity Manager to manage the employee provisioning operations. The organization wants to manage its employee information (add and update functions) by creating them in the target system using Oracle Identity Manager. The organization also wants to synchronize employee updates performed directly in the target system with Oracle Identity Manager. In such a scenario, a quick and an easy way is to install the SuccessFactors connector and configure it with your target system by providing connection information in the IT resource. The SuccessFactors connector is used to manage various employee attributes such as email id, hire-date, and job-level. 1.6 Features of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector The features of the connector include support for connector server, full reconciliation, incremental reconciliation, limited reconciliation, and reconciliation of updates to account data. Full and Incremental Reconciliation Support for Trusted Source Reconciliation Limited Reconciliation Support for the Connector Server Transformation and Validation of Account Data 1-5

Chapter 1 Features of the SAP SuccessFactors Connector 1.6.1 Full and Incremental Reconciliation After you create the connector, you can perform full reconciliation to bring all existing user data from the target system to Oracle Identity Manager. After the first full reconciliation run, you can configure your connector for incremental reconciliation. In incremental reconciliation, only records that are added or modified after the last reconciliation run are fetched into Oracle Identity Manager. Note: The connector supports incremental reconciliation if the target system contains an attribute that holds the timestamp at which an object is created or modified. See Full and Incremental Reconciliation for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector 1.6.2 Support for Trusted Source Reconciliation The SuccessFactors connector can be configured as a trusted source for reconciliation of records into Oracle Identity Manager. See Reconciliation Scheduled Jobs for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector. 1.6.3 Limited Reconciliation To limit or filter the records that are fetched into Oracle Identity Manager during a reconciliation run, you can specify the subset of added or modified target system records that must be reconciled. You can set a reconciliation filter as the value of the Filter Suffix attribute of the user reconciliation scheduled job. The Filter Suffix attribute helps you to assign filters to the API based on which you get a filtered response from the target system. See Limited Reconciliation for the SAP SuccessFactors Connector 1.6.4 Support for the Connector Server Connector Server is one of the features provided by ICF. By using one or more connector servers, the connector architecture permits your application to communicate with externally deployed bundles.

Chapter 1 Lookup Definitions Used During Reconciliation and Provisioning 1.6.5 Transformation and Validation of Account Data You can configure validation of account data that is brought into or sent from Oracle Identity Manager during reconciliation and provisioning. In addition, you can configure transformation of account data that is brought into Oracle Identity Manager during reconciliation. The following sections provide more information: Configuring Transformation of Data During User Reconciliation Configuring Validation of Data During Reconciliation and Provisioning 1.7 Lookup Definitions Used During Reconciliation and Provisioning Lookup definitions used during reconciliation and provisioning are either preconfigured or can be synchronized with the target system. Lookup definitions used during connector operations can be categorized as follows: Lookup Definitions Synchronized with the Target System Preconfigured Lookup Definitions 1.7.1 Lookup Definitions Synchronized with the Target System During a provisioning operation, you use a lookup field on the process form to
