Loopback test for both SP and IDP initiated Federation using OID as the IDP Authenticaiton Engine (Doc ID 1075708.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Identity Federation - Version 11.1.1.1 to 11.1.1.9.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

At times it is difficult to determine if a Federation problem is caused on the IdP side or the SP side. OIF has a built in SP testing application that can be used to test OIF when OIF is acting as the IdP. This test will help  you to isolate the issue as being on the IdP side or the SP side. If this test is successful, then the issue is likely with the SP side. If the test fails, the issue is likely on the IdP side.

Federation can be initiated by the SP side or the IDP side. Therefore we will perform both SP initiated SSO and IDP initiated SSO.

In this troubleshooting scenario we will be testing the OIF IdP which is using the OID LDAP server as its authentication engine.
