If you're bugged by User Certification(Attestation) requirements or interested in Role Engineering (RBAC), Mining and Lifecycle Management be sure to check out if Role Manager meets your needs. This version 5.0 release contains many improvements over the previous releases including (but not limited to!) some treats such as :

- Improved Entitlement Management using the new Application concept which are containers for one or more entitlements on one or more resources. Applications are now available in the Identity Warehouse along with Business Units, Users, Roles, Policies, and Resources. Entitlements can be grouped by Application during User Entitlement Certifications.

- Rule Lifecycle Management Supports Rule Versioning, Rule Approvers, Rule History, Rule Impact Analysis.

- Event Listeners You can create Event Listeners to respond to certain events within the Role Manager system, such as updating a particular attribute on a User. This will trigger the Event Listener into performing one of four actions; 1) User to Business Unit rules 2) User to Role assignment rules 3) Audit Policy Scan and 4) Certification








- Identity Audit enhancements both functional and in terms of runtime performance

Plus many many more...

One area that has received a lot of attention is the integration between Sun Identity Manager and Sun Role Manager. Once I've had chance to flex this thing I'll write more on that topic.
