Setting Enterprise User Security (EUS) with Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g and Microsoft (MS) Active Directory (AD), including:
EBS version - 12.1.3
Database version -
OID version - 11g

Microsoft AD stores all the users information which will be synchronized to OID, but the challenge is that user passwords can Not be stored in the OID due to internal security guidelines. The password validation should happen only in AD.

The password authentication needs to happen on AD and authorization on OID, so DIP sync will not have password attribute, nor Oracle Password Filter can be used.

How to achieve this?
