Oracle EBS Ping SSO Integration


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 Ping without the need to purchase and install Oracle Access Manager (OAM) and Oracle Internet Directory (OID) license."

Oracle EBS Ping SSO integration is enabled with the help of miniOrange SSO Connector.This integration involves registering the miniOrange connector as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) in the miniOrange connector. The authentication flow works like this: when a user tries to login into EBS, the authentication is delegated to miniOrange, which redirects the user to Ping for Single Sign-On Login. Upon successful authentication, the user is granted access to Oracle EBS. Oracle EBS can also be protected with Ping Multi-Factor. Oracle EBS URL can be added to Ping Applications Dashboard by Ping Admin, and users can launch it like any other Ping Application. miniOrange SSO connector can enable Ping SSO for the following supported Oracle EBS versions - R12 and R12.2.



Oracle EBS Ping SSO Authentication Flow with miniOrange Oracle EBS Solution:


Oracle EBS(E-Business Suite) Ping SSO Authentication

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

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

3. The miniOrange SSO Connector redirects the user to Ping for authentication.

4. The user is prompted for their Ping credentials, and is authenticated upon a successful response.

5. The connector receives the user’s Oracle EBS registered username/email from Ping via SAML attributes.

6. The connector checks the value of the username/email received from Ping against the FND_USER table in the Oracle EBS Database & creates a session for them.

7. Upon successfully creating a session, user is redirected to the Oracle E-Business Suite portal as 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.
