“Design Console Access” – A good example of researching

Somebody asked me a questions about the checkbox “Design Console Access” in user creation task in Fusion Application. (In Oracle Identity Manager, OIM). Frankly, I don’t know it either. It sounds too technical. I search it today and found it as a good example of researching.

Firstly, I searched it in google. But it is too difficult to find a quick and good information to locate the answer.

Then, I search it in Oracle Help, a new repository of Oracle documentation. It is enhanced in cloud time!  http://docs.oracle.com/en/

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/doc.1111/e14316/usr_mangmnt.htm#OMUSG499
In this page, I searched “Design Console Access” and find the direct answer of “Design Console Access”.

Design Console Access: The user of OIM User type. It can have one of the two possible values, End-User and End-User Administrator. The OIM User type tells whether or not the user can log in to Oracle Identity Manager Design Console. If the “Design Console Access” check box is selected, the user type will be “End-User Administrator” and the user will have access to design console.

But, it is not enough. What is design console? Then, I search the “design console” in the same page. There’s no explanation for “design console”, but there’s some example mentioned it. For example,

Tip:

If the user forgets the password and tries to retrieve it, then the challenge questions are prompted to the user. The user must enter the same answers provided while creating a password. You can configure the challenge questions for the users by using Oracle Identity Manager Design Console.

To configure challenge questions for the user:

  1. Login to Oracle Identity Manager Design Console.

  2. Navigate to Administration, Lookup Definition.

  3. Search for the Lookup for challenge questions, that is, lookup Code = Lookup.WebClient.Questions.

  4. In the Lookup Code Information tab, add questions by entering the appropriate values in the Code Key and Decode fields.

  5. Click Add.

  6. Add this key to the custom resource bundle.

For more information about the Lookup Definition form, see Section 10.3, “Lookup Definition Form” in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer’s Guide for Oracle Identity Manager.

Great! It seems that design console sounds like a development tool.  Then, I go to Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer’s Guide for Oracle Identity Manager and search the design console. In the first chapter of developer guide is “Overview of design console” http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/doc.1111/e14309/dcintro.htm#OMDEV185

Design console is a development client tool for OIM.

You can use the Design Console to configure system settings that control the systemwide behavior of Oracle Identity Manager and affect its users. The Design Console allows you to perform user management, resource management, process management, and other administration and development tasks.

2014中国当代工艺美术双年展

2014中国当代工艺美术双年展今天在国家博物馆开展,展期自12月6日至12月18日。今天下午,抽得半日空闲,背上相机,乘地铁来到国家博物馆欣赏真正的大师级作品。展品共分四个厅,展厅侧重各有不同,自石雕,玉雕,牙雕,至瓷器,漆器,金银器,刺绣,横跨工艺美术各个领域。其间不但可以看到对传统的继承,而且也可以看到对传统的发扬和挖掘,如大漆画等。由于今天是看展第一天,展厅内真是大师云集,值得庆幸的是,在欣赏作品之余,我还可以聆听大师之间的谈话和切磋,学到了不少书本上没有知识和欣赏作品的方法。真是值得纪念收获颇丰的一个下午!
