How to Restrict Access to WebCenter Spaces to a Subset of Users in the OID Identity Store (Doc ID 1296965.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version: 11.1.1.4.0 and later   [Release: Unknown Release and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

By default when you setup WebCenter Spaces to use OID as an Identity Store for users and groups, all users in the same directory tree automatically gain access to WebCenter Spaces.

This is described in the WebCenter Administrators Guide:
Chapter 28 Configuring the Identity Store


If your users are using different directory tree (DIT) entries in OID you would just be able to update the Security Provider to use users from that specific DIT only.  However if your users are all in one directory tree entry then you need to find another method to distinguish the users that can access your WebCenter site.
 
This document will explain one method to restrict access to WebCenter Spaces to a subset of users in the same DIT in OID.
