Symptoms

Starting Fusion Application Release 13 Update 19A (11.13.19.01.0), Security Console UI has been enhanced to support external Identity provider setup for SAML 2.0 Federation.

For more information refer: https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/tutorial/cloud/r13/wn/common/releases/19A/19A-common-wn.htm#T9990

This new feature allows customers to setup and manage Single Sign-On between Fusion Application (as Service Provider) and any external SAML 2.0 compliant Identity Provider e.g. Microsoft Active Directory Federation Service, Okta, Microsoft Azure etc.in a self-service fashion.

If the Federation SSO was already enabled prior to the Update 19A, then post update the existing SSO setup would be accessible in the Security Console > Single Sign-On page.

However in some customer environments it was reported that:

a. Navigating to the Single Sign-On tab under Security Console throws an error: java.lang.NullPointerException

b. Also that the existing SSO setup information is NOT accessible

 

 

The same error comes up while setting up a NEW Identity Provider in the Single Sign-On page. Here are the steps:

1. Navigate to Security Console > Single Sign-On tab
2. Click the + Create Identity Provider button
3. Enter a Name
4. Select a Name ID Format
5. Upload SAML metadata for an IdP that contains a signing certificate and no encryption certificate
6. Click the Save and Close button
7. Click Done

 

Changes

Fusion Applications Release 13 Update 19A was applied on a Federation SSO enabled environment.
