Goal

This document is to guide Fusion Middleware 11g Discoverer administrators who need to associate an OID/SSO environment with Discoverer after the initial installation.


If OID/LDAP details are provided during the installation or while configuring Discoverer, then you are prompted to provide the OID/SSO details the Discoverer middle-tier is associated.

You may need to do this manually, if:


The Discoverer application can be accessed from one of these ports:


It is always recommended that Discoverer be accessed from the outer most web-tier component (WebCache is the outer-most and WLS_DISCO is the inner-most). When you want to protect Discoverer URLs, you should protect the outermost component. This is what occurs if you associate during installation or running the configuration wizard (config.sh/config.bat).

Note:  Fusion Middleware 11g release does not have a Single Sign-On (SSO) component; therefore, Oracle Single Sign-On 10g (10.1.4.3) has to be installed in a separate Oracle Home or machine with Oracle Internet Directory 11g (documented here) or as part of Identity Management 10g (10.1.4.3 ). Discoverer 11g has to be associated with Oracle Single Sign-On 10g (10.1.2.3 or 10.1.4.3).

Your choices are:
  • Updated with 11.1.1.6 release: Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 11g
    OAM is now in the certification matrix as of the 11.1.1.6 release [see: FMW on WLS - Id&Access tab - cell D7 as of this post]; however, please see the following note for further details and clarification
    How To Integrate Discoverer 11g With Oracle Access Manager ( OAM / SSO ) 11g <Document 1448235.1>

    or

  • FMw 11g Identity Managment (OID) configured with Single Sign-On 10g (10.1.4.3)
    or
  • 10g (10.1.4.3) Identity Management Infrastructure
    or
  • 10g (10.1.2.3) Identity Management Infrastructuture per  Oracle Fusion Middleware Upgrade Guide for Oracle Identity Management
    11g Release 1


    The context of this note assumes using Discoverer in a standalone method. If you are using Discoverer with an E-Business Suite integrated SSO environment, then follow the requirements dictated by E-Business Suite (i.e. - you cannot use 10.1.2.3 Infrastructure in that environment).
