Symptoms

When an attempt is made to integrate Oracle Enterprise Gateway (OEG) 11g with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 11g, the end goal is to configure the Gateway to authenticate and authorize web services via OAM.  To achieve this goal, there is a document available on OTN to follow which explains the setup process:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/id-mgmt/documentation/oam11g-oeg-integration-guide-428888.pdf.

All the steps have been followed to Section 4 of the document.  As per step 7 of Section 4, there seems to be no 'HTTP Authentication" tab under the "security" tab of OEG Service Explorer to enter the necessary credentials and proceed further.

When ignoring this step, 'HTTP 401 Authentication Required' is the message returned when sending the request to test the web service in OEG Service Explorer.
