1.0 Overview

Identity Manager provides the ability to launch jobs that perform specific tasks. The jobs can be run one or more times either manually or at scheduled times.

Identity Manager provides six predefined jobs:

Information about using the predefined jobs is provided in Section 2.0, Adding a Predefined Job and Section 3.0, Configuring the Properties of Predefined Jobs.

You can also develop custom jobs to perform tasks. A custom job requires you to create a Job Definition and a Job Implementation. The Job Definition is XML code that defines the parameters for the job. The Job Implementation is a JAR file that contains the Java classes that perform the task. The job can perform any task that you can implement through Java classes. Because the job is initiated through the Metadirectory engine, the job also has access to the Identity Vault data. For more information, see Section 4.0, Creating a Custom Job.
