Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Enterprise Search - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle SES was integrated with OAM However, when calling the Search Admin page the user is challenged twice for the SES username and password.
First, the OAM login page is displayed and after providing the searchsys/password then the SES authentication page is displayed.

The following documentation was used to integrate SES(Secure Enterprise Search) with OAM(Oracle Access Manager).

Secure Enterprise Search Release Notes (
Configuring Single Sign-On for Oracle SES using Oracle Access Manager 11g

The Oracle SES Administrator's Guide contains information about implementing single sign-on (SSO) authentication for Oracle SES using Oracle Access Manager (OAM) version 10g.
This section describes how to configure Oracle SES for SSO authentication using OAM version 11g.

1) Open a browser and go to the OAM Login page:


2) The OAM authentication page is displayed:


3) The SES username and password are provided and the authentication process begin:

User Name = searchsys
password = *********

4) After the authentication is completed, the request is redirected to the SES Admin page.


5) The SES authentication page is presented:

ORACLE Secure Enterprise Search
User Name: searchsys
Pasword : ********

6) After the SES username and password are entered, same as the one from step 3, then the SES Admin page is displayed.

Wrong behavior= the user should be challenged only once for the username and password, and that happened in the OAM page.
The SES login page shouldn't be presented at all.
