Understanding Options for Integrating Oracle Access Manager with E-Business Suite

Integrating Oracle Access Manager with the E-Business Suite can be tricky.  This is especially true if you're upgrading from EBS 11i to 12, or perhaps also switching from the older Oracle Single Sign-On technology to Oracle Access Manager.  Thing can get even more complicated if you're interested in integrating the E-Business Suite with a third-party authentication system such Windows Kerberos, or managing your users in a third-party LDAP directory like Microsoft Active Directory.

Understanding your options for integrating EBS with Oracle Access Manager and Oracle Internet Directory has just gotten a bit easier.  First, we've just published a new document that lays out the options and our recommendations:

This new document discusses:

  • Single sign-on concepts
  • Options for integrating single sign-on solutions for Oracle E-Business Suite including the following:
    • How the Oracle Access Manager Integration Works
    • How the Oracle Single Sign-On (OSSO) Integration Works
    • Integration with Third-Party Access Management Systems and LDAP
  • Considerations to take into account when choosing a single sign-on solution
  • Documentation roadmap specifying which document to follow dependent upon your integration goal
  • Reference architecture diagrams depicting example components by Oracle E-Business Suite release

In addition to the new overview document above, we've also made extensive revisions and updates to this previously-published document:

The updated Note is the result of your emails, Service Requests, and feedback to us on how we can improve our documentation. This is still an admittedly-complex implementation, with many detailed and exacting steps.  We're examining ways of streamlining and possibly automating some of the implementation steps in a future update to this certification.

Your feedback is welcome

We've tried hard to make this complex area just a little bit more-accessible.  We would love to hear about your experiences with these components.  Your feedback regarding the new note and updated note is welcome.  Please either post a comment here or log a bug request against the note in My Oracle Support.
