Last updated on JUNE 07, 2023

Applies to:

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


There will come a time when it may become necessary to change the way the OAM Server communicates with the WebGate. The intent of this KM note is to provide a high-level understanding of the basics behind the communication used and to provide a starting point for implementation.

The Oracle Access Manager Team recommends being at the latest product version release, patch-set, and Bundle Patch that is available for the specific component being used. This helps ensure that you have the latest fixes/product functionality and helps avoid unnecessary rediscovery of known issues.

  • Stack Patch Bundle for Oracle Identity Management Products (Doc ID 2657920.1)
  • OAM Bundle Patch Release History (Doc ID 736372.1)

In March 2024, the Oracle Access Manager (OAM) components using SIMPLE-mode certificates for communication will not function, thus causing an outage in the OAM environment, unless preventive actions are taken. For further details, refer to KM Note "March 2024 Expiration Of The Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Out Of The Box Certificates (Doc ID 2949379.1)
