Oracle EBS(E-Business Suite)

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 SSO connector enables the Single Sign-On (SSO) between Oracle EBS and any IDPs without the need to purchase and install Oracle Access Manager (OAM) and Oracle Internet Directory (OID) license."

SSO connector enables the Single Sign-On between any Oracle application and IDPs (Identity Providers) like miniOrange, ADFS, Active Directory, Azure AD, Google, Okta, Onelogin, Ping Idenity, Centrify and many more. It also supports web applications which do not provide support for federated single sign-on.


Authentication Flow for miniOrange Oracle EBS SSO Solution:

Can't find your IDP ? Contact us on idpsupport@xecurify.com. We'll help you set it up in no time.


Step 1: Configure Oracle EBS with miniOrange SSO Connector

  • Set aside a sub-domain for the miniOrange EBS SSO connector on the same domain as the EBS installation. For example, if the EBS installation has the URL apps.example.com:, the miniOrange EBS SSO connector could be installed on the sub-domain ebsauth.example.com.
  • In your E-Business Suite installation, login as SYSADMIN and do the following:
    • Create a new user, and assign them the role with code: UMX|APPS_SCHEMA_CONNECT. Make a note of the credentials for this user.
    • Navigate to Functional Administrator → Core Services → Profiles, and make the following changes:
      • Search for the Profile with code APPS_SSO; change its site value from SSWA to SSWA w/SSO.
      • Search for the Profile with the code APPS_AUTH_AGENT; change its site value to the full URL (FQDN) of the miniOrange EBS SSO connector (e.g. http://ebsauth.example.com/ebsauth).
      • Search for the Profile with the name Oracle Applications Session Cookie Domain; change its value from Host to Domain.
    • Bounce the Application Tier of the E-Business Suite to reflect the changes.
  • Generate a DBC file with the miniOrange EBS SSO connector domain (e.g. ebsauth.example.com) using the AdminDesktop utility in EBS; make a note of the APPL_SERVER_ID value present in this newly generated file.
  • Add your external data source (e.g. Active Directory) in the User Store section in your miniOrange Cloud/On-Premise installation; set this user store as the default user store (Prefer Step 2).
  • Add an OpenID application in your miniOrange Cloud/On-Premise installation; the redirect URI should be as follows: http(s)://./ebsauth/redirect. For example, http://ebsauth.example.com/ebsauth/redirect.
  • Make a note of the authorize endpoint (for external broker), token endpoint, and user info endpoint URLs.
  • Deploy the miniOrange EBS SSO connector on your Tomcat server.
  • Update the connector.properties file in your miniOrange EBS SSO connector to reflect the credentials for the user created in step 2, the path of the DBC file & the APPL_SERVER_ID from step 3, and the endpoint URLs from step 5.

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.
