Seek advice from Advanced Configurations for Single Signal-On, Oracle E-Business Suite Mobile Apps Administrator’s Information, Release 12.1 and 12.2.

    Observe that for each browser-based purposes and cellular apps, Oracle E-Business Suite certifies the form-based problem technique only.

    In addition to the form-based problem technique, Oracle Access Supervisor helps a number of various authentication strategies, together with Oracle Id Federation, integration with multi-factor authentication, or integration with other third-party access management techniques. Chances are you’ll leverage Oracle Access Manager to additional combine with any of the alternative authentication mechanisms supported by Oracle Access Manager. Integration with Oracle E-Business Suite is predicted to work, regardless of how Oracle Entry Supervisor authenticates the consumer, offered that Oracle Entry Manager protects the assets, enforces authentication, and returns the configured response headers.

    Notice that Oracle E-Business Suite does not certify these various authentication methods. You could be requested to revert Oracle Access Supervisor to the certified form-based authentication earlier than additional investigation on any points in Oracle E-Business Suite can take place.

    Should you encounter issues in the course of the configuration of Oracle Entry Manager with various authentication mechanisms, you could contact Oracle Help for diagnosing points associated to Oracle Entry Manager.

  3. What are troubleshooting ideas for consumer authentication with Apps SSO Login?

    Listed here are some tips to guide you when your app is configured with Apps SSO Login.

    For SSL or TLS configuration, make sure that you full the required configuration tasks (as described in Part 9.1 Configuring Transport Layer Safety (TLS) in Document 2045154.1 for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3, or Section 6.1 Configure Transport Layer Safety (TLS) in Doc 1576425.1 for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2), akin to enabling JSSE library and importing Oracle E-Business Suite root-CA, intermediate, and server certificates into the Oracle E-Business Suite AccessGate (EAG) truststore. Additionally, ensure the HTTP communication from the Oracle WebLogic Server node the place EAG is deployed to Oracle E-Business Suite net entry URL is allowed. See: Mobile Specific Setup Tasks to Enable Apps SSO Login Authentication Safety, Oracle E-Business Suite Mobile Apps Administrator’s Information, Release 12.1 and 12.2.

    For testing “Login SSO URL” (login/sso) or “EBS Session Service” (login/apps) standalone from an internet browser, it is suggested sending the “X-Ebs-Wep” request parameter that is supported in Oracle E-Business Suite AccessGate (EAG) 1.3.2.1 and above with Oracle E-Business Suite net entry URL (http(s)://:). If EAG doesn’t receive this parameter, the login/apps service might fail and an “Initialization failed -1” error is captured in EAG logs. On this state of affairs, make sure you cross this “X-Ebs-Wep” request parameter.

    For more details about troubleshooting ideas for Apps SSO Login, see Troubleshooting Recommendations on Configuring Apps With the Apps SSO Login Authentication Sort, Oracle E-Business Suite Mobile Apps Administrator’s Information, Release 12.1 and 12.2.

  4. If I log in and get authenticated to an Oracle E-Business Suite cellular app, can I access another Oracle E-Business Suite cellular app from the same cellular gadget without being re-authenticated?

    No, you’ll need to be re-authenticated by offering your login credentials as you navigate from one Oracle E-Business Suite cellular app to a different on the identical cellular system. Re-authentication is required for Oracle E-Business Suite cellular apps even if in case you have built-in Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Access Manager for single sign-on.

    Word that integration with Oracle Access Supervisor does not present device-level single sign-on; that’s, you can’t log into an app and then entry all the apps on the identical gadget with the identical session. As an alternative, this integration connects Oracle Entry Supervisor together with your present Oracle E-Business Suite login framework. The distinction between invocation of multiple net apps from a desktop browser and invocation of a number of MAF-based cellular apps on a cellular system is that the desktop browser can share a cookie, such as the Oracle Entry Manager session cookie, but a number of cellular apps on the cellular system can’t share that cookie.

  5. What’s the session management structure of the Oracle E-Business Suite cellular apps?

    Consumer authentication is carried out by way of an Oracle E-Business Suite specific login or through the use of single sign-on. When the consumer is authenticated, a session is created for that consumer along with a session token (cookie) which uniquely identifies that session. For each service request invoked in that app by that consumer, the session token is handed so that the same session is maintained throughout the lifetime of that app. The session is invalidated when the consumer logs out.

  6. Does Oracle present third-party safety audit reviews and Knowledge Safety Checklists sheets of the Oracle E-Business Suite cellular apps?

    Oracle coverage prohibits us from offering audit results or checklists.
