OBIEE 12c: SSO Option Is Not Available When Enabling SSO for OBIEE 12c in FMW Control Enterprise Manager (Doc ID 2098233.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 27, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You log in to FMW Control Enterprise Manager to enable OAM SSO for OBIEE 12c.

From the Oracle® Fusion Middleware Security Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition -> 4.4.2 Configuring Oracle Access Manager as a New Identity Asserter for Oracle WebLogic Server


1. Log in to Fusion Middleware Control.
For information, see Section 1.6.2, "Using Oracle Fusion Middleware Control".

2. Go to the Security page and display the Single Sign On tab.
Click the Help for this page Help menu option to access the page-level help for its elements.

3. Click Lock and Edit.

4. Select Enable SSO.
When selected, this checkbox enables SSO to be the method of authentication into Oracle Business Intelligence. The appropriate form of SSO is determined by the configuration settings made for the chosen SSO provider.

5. Select the configured SSO provider from the list.
The SSO Provider list becomes active when you select the Enable SSO checkbox.
If you select 'Custom' from the SSO Provider list, then the system will not overwrite the changes you make to the <Authentication> section of the instanceconfig.xml file. Instead, you can manually edit this section of the instanceconfig.xml file.

6. If required, enter logon and logoff URLs for the configured SSO provider.
The logoff URL (specified by the SSO provider) must be outside the domain and port that the SSO provider protects, because the system does not log users out.

7. Click Apply, then Activate Changes.

8. Restart the Oracle Business Intelligence components using Fusion Middleware Control.


However, the SSO Provider list does not become active as described in step 5.
