Oracle Enterprise Manager relies on the WebLogic Server (WLS) for external authentication methods. For this reason, Enterprise Manager (EM) 12c Cloud Control can be authenticated using any authentication method supported by underlying Oracle WebLogic Server.

This document provide steps to Configure Cloud Control with Active Directory or OID using emctl command.Ensure the provider being used before following the document
The "emctl" command is available to configure Cloud Control with only Active Directory (AD) and OID providers without any customization. Use the manual method for all other scenarios.
Running the 'emctl config auth ad' or 'emctl config auth oid' command on the OMS creates a WebLogic authentication provider of type ActiveDirectoryAuthenticator/OID that uses the configuration parameter values specified by the command. Any configuration values not specified retain the default values. Tuning and modification of advanced AD configuration parameters is carried out through the WebLogic Server Administration Console and not the 'emctl config auth ad' command.
For any providers ,other than OID or Active Directory, follow steps in document <Note 1556720.1> to use manual method to add the provider.
