Active Directory LDAP integration with Sites 11g (Doc ID 1486525.1)

Last updated on JUNE 29, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Qn1: We have configured WebLogic to use Microsoft Active Directory as authentication provider. We want to configure Sites 11g to connect to WebLogic for authenticating users, using this Active Directory authentication provider. This is so that we can do Single Sign On between Sites and other applications/domains. Is this supported?
 
Qn2: How do we integrate Sites11g with Microsoft Active Directory when Sites is installed as a cluster?
 
Qn3: During LDAP integration, the integrator asks for the "password for all other users". Does this mean the password for all our users already existing in our LDAP server will be overwritten?
 
Qn4: What is the difference between using a flat LDAP schema and a hierarchical one?
