How To set up Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) for crawling Webcenter Content Server which is protected by Oracle Access Manager 11g (Doc ID 1574312.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2022

Applies to:

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


This article provides the steps for configuring Secure Enterprise Search (SES) 11g to crawl WCC 11g which in turn is protected by OAM 11g . In the normal scenario when WCC is not protected by OAM then the set up / configuration on SES side is different . 

In this scenario on the SES side we would need to add values for following set of parameters :

Authentication Type 

Oracle SSO Login URL

Oracle SSO Action URL

Above 3 parameters are the key here , which instructs SES crawler that the source configured (in this case WCC) is protected by OAM . It picks the authentication parameters and details from these 3 values.

This document is applicable for the following versions of products :

WCC- 11g + 

SES - 11g + 

OAM - 11gr1 and 11gr2 (the concept of Login URL and Action URL is same for OAM) 

OHS - 11g +
