This Document mainly explains on configuring Java AD External Authentication Plug-in for AD but the same procedure apply also for other Java External Authentication Plug-in ( ADAM,Sun iPlanet, Novell eDirectory, Openldap,IBM Tivoli Directory Server etc)


It is assumed that you have set all your environment variables correctly and OID 11g is synchronized with AD successfully.  If you have any issues with synchronization then resolve them before setting up External Authentication Plugin.

Note: orclSourceObjectDN attribute used in synchronization mapping file is a mandatory attribute and it must be mapped, else Java Plugin will fail for authentication. This attribute mapping rule exists by default as below in synchronization mapping rules of a given profile in case of AD.
