Goal

Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Federation: How to Create an SAML 2.0 Identity Provider Partner(IDP)/Configure OAM as a SAML 2.0 Service Provider (SP)

This document will describe how to enable the federation service, enable the OAM Service Provider (SP) service, create a simple SAML 2.0 federation Identity Provider (IdP) partner, create authentication schemes, test the partner, and configure OAM resources to be protected by the IdP partner.  These steps were generated for an OAM 11.1.2.3.0 environment, however the steps to accomplish this should be quite similar in both OAM 11.1.2.2.0 and OAM 12.2.1.3.0 with possible UI differences.  This document assumes you have an Identity Provider Partner who can provide valid SAML communication, and can either provide the necessary SAML metadata or the details (Provider ID, SAML endpoint, and Signing Certificate) required to federate.  This is intended as a simple use case, and any functionality not described here (attribute mapping, just in time provisioning, customizations, etc) is described in the OAM documentation.

A set of video demonstrations of the steps described here (using an Oracle Identity Cloud Service, IDCS, IdP) are attached in an mp4 format recording.
