Authentication Flow for miniOrange Oracle EBS Integrated Windows Authentication Solution:


Oracle EBS (E-Business Suite) SSO Authentication flow

1. The User tries to access the Oracle E-Business Suite, through their domain-joined Windows machine.

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

3. The Connector sends a SAML authentication request to the IWA Module.

4. The IWA Module, through the configured IIS Server, gets user information via Kerberos.

5.The IWA Module retrieves the user attributes required for authentication (if required) from the Active Directory, for the authenticated user.

6. The IWA Module further sends the SAML Authentication Response to the miniOrange connector.

7.The SSO Connector then verifies this user against the Oracle EBS database, and upon successful verification, access is granted.

To do changes, follow the path: mo-ebs-sso-connector >> moas >> WEB-INF >> classes. In this folder search for the file spring-context-onpemise and open it in editor. Search for bean id="customCookie". you will see a bean with name,samesite and secure properties. Update value of samesite from LAX to NONE and of secure to true.
