Oracle Internet Directory 11g (11.1.1.2) Certified with E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite comes with native user authentication and management capabilities out-of-the-box.  If you need more-advanced features, it's also possible to integrate it with Oracle Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory, which allows you to link the E-Business Suite with third-party tools like Microsoft Active Directory, Windows Kerberos, and CA Netegrity SiteMinder.

What About Oracle Single Sign-On?

Sharp-eyed readers might have noticed that Fusion Middleware 11g does not include Oracle Single Sign-On.  For more details about this, see:

Steven,

Now that OID 11.1.1.2 is certfied with eBusiness suite what is the date that premier support for OID 10.1.4.2? Is it Dec 2010 like the rest of the 10.1.X iAS products?

Posted by Mike Charchuk on January 11, 2010 at 05:08 AM PST #

Hello, Mike,

The end of Premier Support for Oracle Internet Directory 10g remains December 2010, as noted in the Fusion Middleware documentation on this site:

http://www.oracle.com/support/lifetime-support-policy.html

Our certification of Oracle Internet Directory 11g with the E-Business Suite doesn't change any of the Premier Support dates for the Oracle Application Server 10g product family.

Regards,
Steven

Thanks Steven,

Maybe I am reading to much into the statement of direction for 10gR3 SSO. It kind of implies that OSSO will be supported until further notice (no enhancements but pretty much everything else).

I was hoping it would be similar for the OID component of IM or maybe a free extended support year as we got with 10gR2 RDMBS and 11.5.10 :)

Hi Steven,

Are there and documents published on this architecture?

E-Business Suite Release 12.1.2: Oracle Internet Directory and Directory Integration Platform from Fusion Middleware 11gR1 (11.1.1.2.0) with Oracle Access Manager 10g (10.1.4.3).

Hi, Victor,

Yes, please see Note 876539.1 (referenced in the article above) for details. We plan to highlight this configuration in an upcoming blog article soon, as well.

Steven

Steven,

Note 876539 referes to 975182.1 " Integrating Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Access Manager using Oracle E-Business Suite". It may be usefull for the readers of this article if you would update references section and include note 975182.1 for architecture #2

Regads,

Hi Steven
Is the below option available for 12.1.2 as well or 12.1.1 only

# E-Business Suite Release 11i, 12.0, 12.1.1: Oracle Internet Directory (OID) and Directory Integration Platform (DIP) from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 (11.1.1.2.0) with Oracle Single Sign-On Server and Oracle Delegated Administration Services Release 10g (10.1.4.3.0).

Hi Steve,

So 11g SSO is the way to go if we are in the process of implementing SSO in our organization? I am asking as the Premier support for 10g products is ending Dec, 2010.

Thanks,

Jagdeep

Posted by Jagdeep on July 12, 2010 at 12:43 AM PDT #

Hi, Jagdeep,

SSO was not included in Fusion Middleware 11g. The latest SSO release is 10.1.4.3. If you are in the process of implementing Single Sign-On in your organization, you should ensure that you are on the latest SSO 10.1.4.3 patchset.

Steven

Hi Steve,

What is the best way to integrate Oracle E-Business Suite (11.5.10.2) with Microsoft Active Directory for singe user/password with Microsoft Active Directory being the Master? We are not looking for Single Sign-On functionality.

Do we need any special licensing for Oracle Internet Directory or special installation for Oracle 10g AS Infrastructure?

Thanks
Sekhar

Hi, Sekhar,

Check out this article:

In-Depth: Using Third-Party Identity Managers with the E-Business Suite Release 11i
http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/2006/05/indepth_using_thirdparty_ident.html

You need to license Oracle Internet Directory for this configuration. You have the option of using either Oracle Single Sign-On (described in the article above) or Oracle Access Manager, which is described here:

Oracle Access Manager 10gR3 Certified with E-Business Suite
http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/2010/03/oam_10gr3_ebs.html

For more information about licensing, I would recommend contacting your Oracle account manager. I'm in Development, not Sales, and am unable to discuss licensing terms in any detail.

Regards,
Steven

Hi Steve,
Hope you remember me from openworld 09 :)
With regards to Mikes statement above which I am reproducing here

We are also thinking about moving to fusion middleware but we have oracle sso integrated with MSAD,oracle portal, discoverer and EBS R12. It looks like we have to move to webcentre and stay on OSSO which is out of premier support in December. Will there be an upgrade path to some later SSO technology if we choose this ?
Now that Sun is part of oracle will there be consolidation of Sun's SSO stuff (IDM I belive its called) and the oracle SSO stuff ?
Thanks

HI, Robin,

I'm afraid that I'm a little unclear on what your question is, but I'll give it a shot.

It is expected that it will be possible to upgrade from Oracle Single Sign-On to later versions of Oracle Access Manager. For more details, see:

Oracle Single Sign-On (OSSO) 10gR3 Statement of Direction (Note 979951.1)

As for the positioning between various Sun Identity Management products and the rest of the Fusion Middleware Identity Management products, see:

http://www.oracle.com/us/038563.pdf

For more background about the topics covered in that document, I'd recommend that you contact your Oracle account manager.

Steven

Hi Steven,

We have a client using EBS 12.1.2 and wants to integrate it with Microsoft Active Directory version 2008. OID 10.1.3.4 is not certified with Active Directory 2008. And I could not find any step by step configuration guide for 11g OID integration with Active Directory. Could you please suggest some documents which can be of help ?

Regards

Safaras

Hi, Safaras,

Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our Oracle Internet Directory specialists engaged.

Good luck with your client's implementation.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on November 12, 2010 at 04:08 AM PST #

HI Steven,

My client is planning to go for a Third Party Single Sign On. But in order to integrate with Oracle E-Business I am assuming we need OID 11G and OSSO. So one of your BLOG images show that you need to integrate with E-Business Server too. As part of this configuration when you are going with OID 11G is it Mandatory to have Oracle Access Manager (Oracle Identity Manager implemented).You reply will be appreciated.

Thx
