4.7.2 Enabling SSO Authentication Using Fusion Middleware Control
This section describes how to enable SSO authentication for Oracle Business Intelligence using the Security tab in Fusion Middleware Control.
To enable SSO authentication in Fusion Middleware Control:
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 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.
