Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Oracle Access Manager - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


OAM Identity Asserter type of Authentication Provider is included in Fusion Middleware Infrastructure install. One can create a new authentication provider based on this type to authenticate users. On the provider specific page for the provider, one can specify a custom header for the "SSOHeader Name" that contains user token information. The default setting is OAM_REMOTE_USER. The OAM Identity Asserter will then validate the user token in the SSO Header by contacting Oracle Access Manager (OAM).

Although all the settings for the Identity Asserter provider are configured correctly SSO is still not working when using a custom http header specified as the "SSOHeader name".
