Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO solution by miniOrange enables Single Sign-On between Oracle EBS and  Azure AD with the highest possible speed and security. In simpler terms, you will log in to your Oracle EBS Instance using your Azure AD credentials. You don’t have to maintain a username – password credentials set for  Azure AD  and Oracle EBS differently.

Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO is highly recommended across the industry for improved Security and  a noticeably better user experience. SSO is also a mandatory requirement for IT Security Audits in Oracle E-Business Suite EBS. Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO is traditionally enabled with Oracle Access Manager – OAM and Oracle Internet Directory – OID. With miniOrange Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO Connector, OAM and OID  licenses aren’t required to enable Oracle EBS SSO which indirectly reduces operational cost.

Why is Azure AD required to integrate with miniOrange – Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite?

Azure AD has the best integration support with the cloud applications which results in a perfect solution to configure SAML 2.0 with Azure to supply the required federated SSO integration for Oracle E-Business Suite EBS.

In a normal use case, once you move your E-Business Suite EBS application to the cloud and provide access to the application through Microsoft Azure AD, then you have to sign in differently for both Azure portals as well as E-Business Suite applications.

miniOrange’s Federated SSO makes the integration seamless and allows the users to authenticate only once to access multiple applications, without signing in separately to access each application.

This is why it is recommended to have Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with miniOrange – Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite – EBS.

Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with miniOrange – Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite – EBS

Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO by miniOrange can be successfully integrated with multiple Azure Platforms like Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), Azure ADFS in Microsoft Azure with multiple Gateway options.

Oracle EBS and other Oracle Applications – PeopleSoft, Siebel, JD Edwards do not natively support any Single Sign-On integration with standard SSO protocols like SAML or OAuth 2.0.

Azure AD offers SSO integration using the SAML 2.0 standard; this allows Azure AD to act as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP), and miniOrange as a SAML Service Provider (SP). The miniOrange Oracle E-Business Suite EBS Azure SSO Connector acts as a gateway between Azure AD, your desired SSO platform, and Oracle EBS, to provide SSO. miniOrange Azure SSO experience is equivalent to any other SAML Single Sign-On Integrations. On top of SSO, you can add extra security with Multi-Factor Authentication – MFA after a successful Azure AD SSO Login. We support 15 + multi-factor authentication methods: OTP over SMS  and Email, QR Code, Google Authenticator, Hardware Token, and more. Our Multi-Factor Authentication – MFA solutions are regarded as the best in the industry in terms of reliability, support and value added as compared to costs.

How does Oracle EBS SSO Authentication work with Azure AD?

This architecture diagram covers a pattern for setting up the Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with miniOrange – Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite – EBS Connector and E-Business Suite with miniOrange Identity Platform and Azure AD to provide secure SSO login integration. Here miniOrange Identity Platform acts as a bridge between Oracle EBS and Azure AD.

The following steps explain the authentication flow between the various components: (Azure AD, miniOrange Identity Platform, miniOrange Oracle EBS Connector)

  1. Firstly, the user sends the request to access their Oracle E-Business Suite.
  2. Oracle EBS redirects the request to the miniOrange SSO Connector for authentication.
  3. The connector now redirects the user to the miniOrange Identity Platform.
  4. The miniOrange Identity Platform prompts the user to enter their Azure AD credentials.
  5. miniOrange Identity platform forwards the user’s credentials to the Azure AD for authentication.
  6. Azure AD authenticates the user and sends responses with the confirmation.
  7. The Identity Platform sends the username/email to the EBS connector.
  8. The connector checks the value of the username/email received from Identity Platform against the FND_USER table in the EBS Database.
  9. After successful authentication, the user is redirected to the Oracle E-Business Suite portal as a logged-in user.

miniOrange’s Oracle SSO Identity federation helps enterprises reduce cost because user accounts don’t have to be created and managed separately in each identity management system (IDP) differently. The user-synchronization process ensures that identities are propagated to all or any federated systems. This is the step-by-step process to easily set up and use Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with miniOrange – Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite – EBS.
