eMail communication has revolutionized the way we communicate. A tool/facility introduced for simple communications is now considered more formal and legal. For a long time deep linking, in simple terms, embedding buttons with logic to provide email based decisions has been prevalent.
There is nothing better than sending a direct link to a page where one needs to take an action, in an email. Especially for something which needs urgent attention.
Error 46 initializing SQL*Plus
HTTP proxy setting has incorrect value
SP2-1502: The HTTP proxy server specified by http_proxy is not accessible.
Error: HTTP proxy setting has incorrect value
In the above error message, “HTTP proxy server specified by http_proxy variable”, the specified value is incorrect.The error may have occurred because sqlplus uses the http_proxy and no_proxy environment variables to determine if proxy is used. To bypass the proxy settings, both these values need to be unset or exported.
http_proxy: Specify the value to use as the HTTP proxy for all connections.
For example: http_proxy=“http://proxy.mycompany.com:8080”
no_proxy: Determine hosts that should bypass the proxy.
For example: no_proxy=localhost, mycompany.com, 192.168.0.10:80 so it can’t access this proxy.
First check the proxy settings , it should be correct value or unset it if no proxy is needed. SQL*Plus may get the proxy name from the environment variable http_proxy.This problem could be resolved by using the following commands –
In 1986, Chernobyl was the result of bad designs/coding. Huge disasters in the world happen due to naive and inappropriate logic built into systems.
From a refrigerator to your car, a mobile to a rocket, everything runs on a microprocessor. It is a logic builder’s responsibility to take care of some cliched issues that might crash the entire system.
This Video blog is an attempt to lucidly present the design patterns, which have to be considered by every programmer, irrespective of platform of development, for impeccable results.
In this presentation, we spoke about almost all the design patterns which are mostly used in Software Development.In a nutshell, the following are the various aspects of design patterns covered as part of the video:
In Sailpoint’s Identity IQ “Refresh Identity Cubes” is one among the most important internal tasks. Refresh Identity Cubes helps in building 360 degree purview of an identity based on all the data aggregated from external sources.
As part of the mammoth task of securing the IT environments, securing the Unix servers would be the first step.
At ENH iSecure, we thrive to achieve complete and impeccable solutions leaving nothing to chance.
As a part of these efforts, we are speaking about Identity Governance in Unix with the help of Sailpoint’s IIQ.
Out of the box Sailpoint’s IdentityIQ provides numerous workflows for provisioning, we can implement our custom workflows according to the necessity. Similarly, parallel and serial approvals are workflows used in an enterprise to manage the access of the user.
In the world of IAM, one thing every developer should remember is that “Right thing must be accessed by the Right user at a Right time“, from the above sentence we can say that an access must be rightfully distributed to the user.
In this requirement a user in an enterprise requested an entitlement or role using IdentityIQ then that access must be approved by the work groups which are maintaining that privilege.
Understanding parallel and serial approvals in IdentityIQ
The following video illustrates about parallel and serial approvals.
Working demo of parallel and serial approvals
The following video demonstrates how parallel and serial approvals accomplishes.
Data loading into Active Directory implies creating AD Accounts and corresponding Exchange mailbox accounts using employee data existing in a database.
Java program is developed in a fashion which reads the credentials from XML, retrieves employee data from the database, creates an account with a default password in active directory and enables the account as well.
When we try to correlate the accounts into SailPoint’sidentityIQ using multiple authoritative sources the following
exception may arise.
Why this happens
The main reason for this error is ambiguity of accounts. After the account aggregation task completed when we try to run the task refresh identity cubes. Task is not running and error is displays as Task stopped by user. When you see the log file there a exception named Mark Invalid.
The main cause for this error is, If you have added more than one authoritative sources marked for one identity. The following exception will arise. that means you have added two Authoritative sources representing the same data if run the aggregation task the accounts will be populated with their name then If we perform refresh identity cubes task the accounts will not linked its respective manager account because there will be an ambiguity between two accounts which has to be correlate as manager account.
In other cases if you have any accounts or identities not properly deleted.
The solution I found is to get backup of the rules and application into a xml file using the console.Shutdown the application server and drop all the tables in database using the sql scripts provided by identityIQ then create the tables using the scripts. Import the init.xml using the iiqconsole.Then import the xml file which represents the application object. Then if you run the aggregation and correlation tasks you can see that all the identities and their managers are correlated in identity warehouse.
