    Hi, Steven:

    the certification in this article is done by OID11g + OSSO10143 or OID11g + OAM10143 ? thanks

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, January 19, 2010

    Hi, Davin,

    Both configurations covered by the original certification are now applicable to these additional platforms.

    Could you define what is meant by "certified", please?

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, January 26, 2010

    Hi, Julian,

    You might find this article useful:

    That goes into some detail as to what we do as part of our regular certification process.

    Hi Steve. I have some detailed questions about SSO that I don't see answers for in the documentation.

    E.g, how is the SSO security token formatted? What are the steps used to validate an existing SSO token/cookie? etc.

    Where's the best place to go for answers?

    Thanks, Peter

    Hi, Peter,

    I believe that some of these details (such as the SSO token format) aren't published externally due to security concerns. I don't know whether they can be disclosed; that's the Single Sign-On team's call, I'm afraid.

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

    Thanks for the informative article. I have a couple of questions.

    1. Is there a profile option that can tell me whether SSO or normal EBS login holds for an EBS instance?

    2. Is there an OID table that can give me the orclguid for a given SSO id?

  • Steven Chan Monday, May 10, 2010


    1. Yes, the APPS_SSO_LOCAL_LOGIN profile option shows this. For example, see Note 261914.1 for details about Release 11i.

    2. Probably, but I'm not very familiar with OID tables. If you can't find that documented in the OID documentation, your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of the OID product specialists engaged.

    When will Forms, Reports and OID be supported/certified with Solaris x86?

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, October 5, 2010

    Hello, Eric,

    Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to my E-Business Suite Technology Stack blog (http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan) for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
