Loading OIM User Data

The following is a summary of the steps involved in loading OIM User data:

  1. If required, create a tablespace for the temporary tables used during the bulk load operation.
  2. If required, create a datafile in the Oracle Identity Manager tablespace.
  3. Create the OIM User whose password will be used as the default password for all OIM Users created during the bulk load operation.
  4. Create the input source for the bulk load operation.

    If you want to use a database table as the input source, then create the table and copy user data into the table.
