SINGLE SIGN-ON (SSO) FOR ORACLE EBS
miniOrange provides a ready to use SSO solution for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) along with Directory Integration. This solution ensures that you are ready to roll out secure SSO access to Oracle EBS for enterprise users within minutes using single set of login credentials.

Oracle EBS (E-Business Suite) SSO

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 integration 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.


Supported Protocols for Oracle EBS Single Sign-On:

Oracle EBS does not natively support any Single Sign-On integration with a standard SSO protocol such as SAML or OAuth 2.0. With the miniOrange SSO connector, you can integrate your EBS instance with Single Sign-On using any of the following protocols:


1. SAML 2.0

2. OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect

3. WS-FED

4. RADIUS

5. Kerberos / Integrated Windows Authentication


miniOrange SSO connector gives you the flexibility of extending your existing SAML SSO integration for other applications, to Oracle EBS as well. This is possible due to its capability to act as a broker between multiple IdP's & your configured applications. This means that you can perform seamless integration of SSO for Oracle EBS with your existing authentication platform.
You can find a video of the user experience and setup guide for this integration in the section below.


Authentication Flow for miniOrange Oracle EBS SSO Solution:


Oracle EBS(E-Business Suite) SSO Authentication flow

1. The User sends the request to access the Oracle E-Business Suite.

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

3. The Connector redirects the user to the miniOrange IDP.

4. The miniOrange IDP prompts the user to enter their AD credentials.

5. The miniOrange IDP send the user's credentials to the AD for authentication.

6. The Active Directory authenticates and send respond with the confirmation.

7. The IDP sends the username/email to the connector.

8. The connector checks the value of the username/email recieved from IDP against the FND_USER table in the EBS Database.

9. After successful authentication, user is redirected to the Oracle E-Business Suite portal as logged-in user.

  • Adaptive Authentication

    miniOrange Adaptive Authentication aims to provide a better experience to reduce the authentication burden on users while enforcing strong authentication where it is needed the most. For example, when a user attempts to access an application via an unregistered device then they may be prompted to register it. If the user logs in from a geographical location other than their office, they may be asked to answer security questions. Learn More

  • User Provisioning

    miniOrange User Provisioning provides an easy way of creation, management, and maintenance of end-users especially for large enterprises to reduce the risk for unauthorized access of information. User provisioning includes the creation, updating and deletion of user accounts. User provisioning makes life easier for admins because they do not have to manually arrange access for each user.

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.

Step 3: Oracle EBS Suite Login Flow

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

  • When a user accesses any of their bookmarked Oracle E-Business Suite URLs without previously having logged in, a user from the original login (Oracle EBS login page) page will be redirected to the miniOrange login page.
  • Oracle EBS Single Sign-On (sso) home Login page

    Oracle EBS Single Sign-On (sso) insert 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, 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), and the user will be logged in.
  • Oracle EBS 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.

Step 4: Oracle EBS (E-Business Suite) Provisioning with Active Directory

  • Auto-Create user at the time of login authentication.
  • Import Users from Active Directory and Sync them in Oracle EBS from miniOrange admin portal.
