|Sometime back I discussed about Apex (earlier HTMLDB) Installation, Click Here to know more about apex Installation . Today I am going to cover how to configure Single Sign-On for Apex Applications. If you are new to Oracle SSO (Single Sign-On) and want to know more about Oracle SSO Click Here for Overview of Oracle SSO
There are mainly three major steps in configuring Apex / HTMLDB
--Register Apex as Partner Application in SSO Server
--Install SSO SDK on Apex Server
--Register SSO details on Apex Middle Tier
Assumptions in below configuration
Below configuration is based on following assumptions, You may need to change things as per your apex/sso version.
-- Apex version discussed below is for 188.8.131.52.0 (Change schema name flows_020200 according to your version)
-- Apex is installed on 10g AS , if you don't see ssosdk902.zip then get it from 10g AS middle tier -- You have access to Oracle SSO Server with Admin privileges (orcladmin) account
--You have access to schema under which Apex was installed , In my discussion below database schema name for Apex is "apex"
-- URL to access Apex Application is http: // apex_server_name/pls/apex
Configure Apex as Partner application in Oracle SSO Server
Type URL as http: // ssoserver.com/pls/orasso & login as orcladmin, you will see screen like
Click on SSO Server Administration & then you will get Administration Screen
Under that click on "Administer Partner Application "
Click on Add Partner Application
You will come to Partner application Login Screen enter following details & click on "OK"
Name : SSO Apex
HOME URL : http: // apex_server_name/pls/apex
Success URL : http: // apex_server_name/pls/apex/wwv_flow_custom_auth_sso.process_success
Log Out URL : http: // apex_server_name/pls/apex/apex
and click on OK, you will get screen with values like ID, Token, Encryption Key, Login URL, Single Sign-Off URL ... Keep a note of these values as these will be used during Apex Registration process in Next Steps
Remaining Steps: Installing SSO SDK in Apex & Registering Apex with SSO Partner Application created above coming in Next Topic ...
