Setting password attribute for Active directory and PeopleSoft Campus Solution RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have Peoplesoft Campus Solutions as source system and AD as target.. Some info goes back to Peoplesoft Campus as well where it acts like target (e.g. User Profile). I have to set password based on the policy (random number + some portion of emplid) . This password is set in AD and peoplesoft both. 

    Can someone pls guide where I should set this password? In the inbound sync service so that it goes in FIM and then to AD and PeopleSoft campus both? But this way it would be saved in FIM DB.. If I set it in outbound, it would be available either to AD or PS .. How should it be done?

  • I don't know a whole lot about PeopleSoft Campus, but looks like PS - Oralce.

    Here is what you need,

    1- Provicion AD account with an initial password - Passwords change after

    How to provision to AD, Including Password:

    2- Provision Campus account. Not quite sure how this is done, but I suspect it is an Oracle MA.

    3- Set the Password Sychronization in MIM Synch, so that everytime AD password changes, it propagates it to Campus.

  • Hi Nosh,

    For PeopleSoft Campus, it is a webservice connector and not an Oracle MA to create user profiles in PeopelSoft.

    Do you mean the flow  would be somewhat similar to :

    1. The password will be set (initial password) in the outbound sync service of AD.

    2. After Account in AD is created, this data will be synced back with FIM (or the password would go in the metaverse during provisioning of AD?)

    3. After that PS Webservice MA will be run to get the password attribute from FIM metaverse? 

    Please clarfiy the above queries.

  • looks like a cloud solution, which changes things a little. Not sure if you can sync password with campus out of the box, you will need to write a custom dll for that. As far as setting password initially, that is always done during outbound provisioning. This is done once and that password shoukd be changed so it will already be out of sync begween AD and Campus.

  • For PeopleSoft, FIM has delivered webservice connector and webservice configuration tool to perform actions on import and export (add/replace/delete). It also has the option of set and change password (probably wud be used in auto-sync). So no custom dlls.

    What I just need to know is if I set the random password in AD outbound service and then I just need to kick my PS webservice MA, where can I get the password from? ( as its random so can't be generated again).

  • If that is all you want, then you set the password during import and store in in a MIM Metaverse Attribute.
