For Oracle Identity Analytics Installation :


a. Java JDK 1.6.0_21 (

b. Tomcat Application Server6.0.29 (

c. MySQL 5.1 Database (

d. OIA Setup (

Installation Startup :


1. Install Java JDK on your machine

2. Set PATH in your environment variables

PATH=%JAVA_HOME%;%PATH%;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin

3. Set JAVA_HOME = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21

4. Go to Command Prompt and java –version to verify everything is correct.


1. Unzip Tomcat. Unzip into your C/D/E drive.

2. E.g. Location is : E:\apache-tomcat-6.0.29

3. Set CLASSPATH in your environment variables

CLASSPATH = .;C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\lib\jsp-api.jar;C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\lib\el-api.jar;C:\Servlets+JSP;..;..\..
(for GlassFish its Not Required)

Test the Server: Go to E:\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\bin and click on startup –Serve r should be started.

5. Check http://localhost:8080


1. Download the installation setup from the link provided above.

2. Typical Setup

3. Skip Sign-Up

4. Make sure "Configure the MySQL Server now" is checked

5. "Detailed Configuration"

6. "Developer Machine"

7. "Multifunctional Database"

8. "InnoDB Tablespace Settings" - leave everything default

9. "Decision Support (DSS)/OLAP"

10. Make sure "Enable TCP/IP Networking" is checked and leave the port number at 3306 (at this point, if you have a firewall, it will usually try to access itself on the localhost)
Leave "Enable Strict Mode" checked

11. "Standard Character Set"

12. Check "Install as Windows Service" and I would recommend leaving "Launch the MySQL Server automatically" checked.

13. Enter a root password (and remember/write it down) and I would recommend leaving "Enable root access from remote machines" unchecked

14. Then hit "execute" and it'll install and set it up.


1. Create a folder E:\OIA and copy the download installation from the link above and extract it. It should look like below:

db / sample / conf / reports / legal / rbacx.war

This will be your RBACX_HOME, set the environment variable.

From sample folder, copy import and export directories and paste it to RBACX_HOME.

4. Setup database for OIA, use the schema script from RBACX_HOME\db folder.

For e.g. to load schema on mySQL database, use script named rbacx11.

Go to mySQL folder on your drive through command prompt

mysql> \.rbacx-

6. Go to RBACX_HOME\conf folder and copy from folder of name of your db to conf folder.

For e.g in case of mysql, copy file from RBACX_HOME\conf\mysql folder and paste it to conf folder.

Edit this properties file as per your database details. For instance, in case of mysql, replace $SERVER_NAME with host name of your database and port with 3306 (default for mysql)

Edit file in RBACX_HOME\conf folder by replacing $RBACX_HOME with path of RBACX_HOME (so for our eg. it will be E:/OIA)


Extract rbacx.war from RBACX_HOME into temp folder.(e.g. C:\temp) [What we will do is to make some changes, add couple of jars and repack it again and deploy on server]

Now navigate to C:\temp\WEB-INF directory and edit below entry in file

log4j.appender.file.file=logs/rbacx.log (default)

log4j.appender.file.file=E:/OIA/logs/rbacx.log   :—After Change

Similarly make changes to conf-context.xml file in C:\temp\WEB-INF folder. Replace $RBACX_HOME with path of RBACX_HOME (According to Environment Variable setup)

Copy below jars to C:\temp\WEB-INF\lib folder

1. jasper-jdt.jar (

2. jdbc driver for your database(mysql drivers are already included in lib folder so no need to add them ) For Oracle it would be ojdbc5.jar or ojdbc6.jar

3. Jars for the connectivity of the provisioning server, you will integrate with OIA.

(If OIM is provisioning server then get jars from ext and lib folder of your OIM_HOME)

also can be downloadable from following link.

10: Pack the folder C:\temp

C:\> cd C:\temp

C:\> jar -cvfm rbacx.war . (Create Ware File) from command prompt.

Use this war to deploy on your application server. Copy or deployee rbacx.war in WebApps folder of Tomcat and start the server.

Start the server and access the console using url

http://hostname:port/rbacx/ Here ( http://localhost:8080/rbacx ) and will get following screen

Default user name is rbacxadmin and password is password
