Different Authentication Settings for Internal and External Users with EBS 12.2 Now Available

Elke Phelps
Product Management Director

(Updated 20-May-2020:  Added clarification that the minimum requirement for this feature is Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6 or ATG Delta 6.)

I'm pleased to inform you of a recent enhancement delivered for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2  If you are using Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6 or higher or have applied ATG Delta 6, you may now configure single sign-on and local authentication at the site and server level.   

Note:  Local authentication simply means that native Oracle E-Business Suite authentication is used. 

With prior Oracle E-Business Suite releases, if you integrated with Oracle Access Manager for Single Sign-On  all users were configured for single sign-on authentication.  Now, you may choose to register your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6+ instance with Oracle Access Manager for single sign-on for all internal users while external users may use local user authentication.  This enhancement also eliminates the requirement to add external users to your corporate directory service.



For additional details regarding the configuration options refer to Section 6.5 Configure Single Sign-on at Site or Server Level  in Integrating Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 with Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 (11.1.2) using Oracle E-Business Suite AccessGate (Doc ID 1576425.1)

    good to hear about this new functionality, though we're still on 12.1.3 and it'll take a while for us to upgrade to 12.2.
    I've the following question that helps me to better understand if the 12.2 solution would be good for us:
    we plan to implement SSO with Kerberos in our internal node, here I don't see any problems.
    We would like to avoid adding external customers to our AD and this solution seems to do what we're looking for.
    But how can we manage both internal and external users in DMZ? The point is that besides iStore/iReceivables external users logging from outside, we also have iExpense internal users which could submit expense reports without the need to vpn into our network. Is there a way to resolve that?

    Thank you,
