Oracle EBS Partner logo

Oracle E-Business Suite is a major product line of Oracle Corporation. Oracle EBS is a combined set of business applications for automating customer relationship management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) processes within organizations.

"miniOrange Oracle EBS 2FA/MFA solution adds an extra layer of security for organizational users by enforcing strict 2FA/MFA login while accessing EBS resources."



Oracle EBS MFA/2FA integration adds additional security to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) login which ensures that only users who are permitted get access to the EBS resources. Using 2FA with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) can also help you with compliance benefits. Oracle EBS does not natively support 2FA/MFA, but miniOrange makes it possible. The given setup guide will walk you through the process of implementing 2FA with Oracle EBS using miniOrange connector. miniOrange supports 15+ MFA methods like - TOTP (Microsoft Authenticator/Google Authenticator), hardware/software tokens, OTP over SMS and Email etc. You can configure any of these 2FA/MFA methods considering your organizational needs.



Authentication Flow for miniOrange Oracle EBS 2FA/MFA (Two-Factor Authentication) Solution:


Oracle EBS (E-Business Suite) 2FA/MFA Authentication flow

1. The User tries to access the Oracle E-Business Suite, either directly at the AppsLogin endpoint or via a bookmarked URL.

2. Oracle EBS redirects the request to the miniOrange Connector for authentication.

3. The Connector sends a SAML authentication request to configured IDP.

4. The User is Prompted to enter their (IDP) credentials which is the first level of authentication.

5. Configured IDP sends SAML response to miniOrange Connector.

6. After primary authentication, miniOrange prompts for configured 2FA method.

7. User submits the response to the 2FA prompt in a form of OTP/TOTP code.

8. The Connector checks the value of the username/email attribute fetched from the IDP against the FND_USER table in the Oracle EBS Database.

9. After successful 2FA authentication a session is created for the user in Oracle EBS.

10. User is redirected to Oracle EBS as a logged-in user.



Connect with External Source of Users


miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.

4. Oracle EBS Suite Login Flow

Scenario 1: User has not logged in, no session exists

  • If any SAML IDP like Okta, ADFS, Ping is configured, user is directly redirected to IDP login page. If no IDP and customer only has Active Directory then he will be redirected to miniOrange login page.
  • Oracle E-Business  MFA

         Login page

    Oracle E-Business  MFA submit miniorange user credentials

  • Here, the user will have to enter their Active Directory credentials - userPrincipalName and password.
  • The miniOrange server will then authenticate the user against the Active Directory (AD), and perform authorization for accessing the user’s username and email address.
  • This username and email address will then be matched against the table of users in the Oracle E-Business Suite database (FND_USER).
  • After first level of successful authentication, user need to authenticate via the configured 2FA method.
  • Oracle EBS two factor authentication(2fa) otp prompt

  • Once both these authentication methods are successfully passed by the user, user will be successfully logged in to the EBS Account.
  • Oracle E-Business  SSO login successful


Scenario 2: User has logged in, session is active

  • When a user session already exists, the user can directly navigate to any of their bookmarked Oracle E-Business Suite URLs.
  • No authentication is required in this case; the user’s session information is retrieved from the ICX session cookie that’s present in the browser.

5. Adaptive Authentication with Oracle E-Business

A. Restricting access to Oracle E-Business with IP Blocking

    You can use adaptive authentication with Oracle E-Business MFA to improve the security and functionality of Multi-Factor Authentication. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for MFA or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.

    You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
  • Login to Self Service Console >> Adaptive Authentication.
  • Add a Policy Name for your Adaptive Authentication Policy.
  • Oracle E-Business  2FA/MFA Restrict Access adaptive authnetication policy

  • Select your Action for behaviour Change and Challenge Type for user from the Action for behaviour Change Section.
  • Oracle E-Business  2FA/MFA Restrict Access adaptive authentication behaviour change


    Action for behaviour Change Options :


    Attribute Description
    Allow Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.
    Challenge Challenge users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.
    Deny Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.

    Challenge Type Options :

    Attribute Description
    User second Factor The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
  • OTP over SMS
  • PUSH Notification
  • OTP over Email
  • And 12 more methods.
  • KBA (Knowledge-based authentication) The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.
    OTP over Alternate Email User will receive a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Console. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.

  • Now Enable Enable IP Restriction option from the IP RESTRICTION CONFIGURATION section to configure custom IP range.
  • Oracle E-Business  2FA/MFA Restrict Access adaptive authentication ip blocking

  • Select the Action you want to perform if the IP address is out of the range. i.e. Allow, Challenge & Deny.
  • Specify the IP Address range for which you want above setting to reflect. You can add more than one IP Address ranges by clicking on following button +.
  • Scroll to the end and click on save.


B. Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.

    Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users will be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.
