ILM 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I have ILM 2007 FP1 SP1 running on with HR feed sent from Oracle HR on a daily basis

    There are about 50,000 records in the flat file the Oracle HR sends to ILM 2007 and I have a MA that imports this for further provisioning

    Out of 50,000 records only few percentage of them actually under go change such change in first name/surname etc

    The HR MA however needs to import all the 50000 records irrespective of the delta changes made on the HR system

    If HR feeds contain only delta records for whom the changes were made, ILM2007 HR MA would see the remaining set of data missing and would delete the relative Meta verse data for those which dont have corresponding values in the HR feed file(the connected source)

    The question here is how can ILM2007 HR MA be configured to import only delta feeds rather than processing all 50,000 every day, Is that possible and if yes how can this be done

    It would help me to do my impact analysis further

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Venkat,

    As far as I know, you can't perform delta import on a file based management agent. Maybe someone else have a workaround.

    I would suggest changing the management agent to an Oracle MA, and point the MA to a view. You can also point the MA to a delta view. The link below show you how to use a delta view:

  • You can do a delta import with a file based MA -- but some process outside of FIM needs to create the delta file.
