Synchronize Oracle Applications Cloud with Oracle Identity Cloud Service and Set Up Single Sign-On to Access Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse (was Oracle Analytics for Applications)

 

You must synchronize users and roles in Oracle Applications Cloud with Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) and then set up single sign-on to enable these users to access Oracle Fusion Analytics Warehouse.

 

Here are the steps that you must complete:

  1. Note the IDCS details in the mail notifying you of the Oracle Applications Cloud Account.  
  2. Set up synchronization of Oracle Applications Cloud with the IDCS instance specified in your Oracle Applications Cloud Account.
  3. Federate the IDCS instance specified in your Oracle Applications Cloud Account to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) tenancy where Fusion Analytics Warehouse is provisioned.
  4. Sign in to the OCI tenancy where Fusion Analytics Warehouse is provisioned using the Federated IDCS stripe.
  5. Create your Fusion Analytics Warehouse instances.

 

1. Note the IDCS Details Specified in Your Oracle Applications Cloud Account

 

As the Oracle Applications Cloud administrator, you would have received emails from “servicestatus_us” notifying you of your Oracle Applications Cloud Account. The email is titled “Action Required:  Please Use the NEW Oracle Admin Account”. You must’ve received this email sometime between October - December 2019.

  1. Save the IDCS details for each of the pod instance (Development and Production) from the email for each of the Oracle Applications Cloud environments.
