How To Limit External Access Only To iSupplier Portal Users (Doc ID 559528.1)

Last updated on JUNE 22, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iSupplier Portal - Version 11.5.10 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Goal

There is a requirement to open up the iSupplier portal to external users through internet; all the modules except iRecruitment are restricted to local network use only. The iSupplier Portal set up advises to use the following profile options for configuring external URL for internet use:

POS: External Url
POS: External Logon Path

This together generates the logon URL for iSupplier: 
http://servername.abc.com/OA_HTML/AppsLocalLogin.jsp

However, that URL is same as APPS logon page for all internal users; using the same URL for iSupplier then all users will be able to logon through internet.  The intention is  to allow only the vendors to register and log in through the internet.

Howe to restrict internet access only for vendors?
