5.3.1 Using Identity Directory Services
Identity Directory Service offers a consistent and rationalized technology to access identity stores that eliminates redundant configurations and simplifies Identity Management operations. IDS provides the following benefits:
- Support for different types of user directories including integration with native user/password state managed by the directory.
- Consistent administration user interface and a paradigm for working with different identity stores across Oracle Identity Management components.
- Built in failover and load balancing capabilities.
- Logical to physical attribute mapping and entity relationships.
