How to Configure Java External Authentication Plugin for Fixed AD Users in OID (Manually Added) Without DIP Synchronization? (Doc ID 2108360.1)

Last updated on JUNE 30, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 10.1.4 to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

If there is an Out of the Box requirement where there is no need of DIP synchronization between Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 10.1.4 and higher and AD (Active Directory), but the only requirement is to have some fixed or migrated users from AD in OID to use authentication against AD via OID, then this article addresses one of the approaches to achieve this.

 

Example Scenario for this Requirement:

EBS integrated with OAM. OID is the user identity store. The requirement is that the user must be authenticated against Active Directory for passwords.
In addition, all the users are in AD but only some or a few users are in OID.  So synchronizing all the users from AD to OID is not desired, and only the existing users in OID must be able to authenticate against AD.
