    Hi Team,

    Please guide.

    I have a problem for which I am not able to derive a solution.

    I have OAM-OIM-OUD installation of

    I have to setup a target system which will be authenticated through SAML token.

    I want to use “Identity Assertion” functionality of OAM

    But my problem is, I have to pass some values in SAML token which I have to pull from OIM Database and these values are not in OUD.

    For example, child values of Provisioned account and some runtime values which user will select from drop down as part of login process in challenge page.

    Please note, this is not federated system to which I am passing SAML token.

    Kindly advise.



  3. Hi , We have application which implemented in ADF running on Weblogic. we have configured webgate option for Single sign On- and application re-directs to login page of Oracle SSO. and we were able to retrieve the logged in user email and name from the cookie ORA_UCM_INFO.
    SecurityContext securityCtx = ADFContext.getCurrent(). getSecurityContext();

    FacesContext facesContext = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
    ADFContext adfCtx = ADFContext.getCurrent();
    ExternalContext externalContext = facesContext.getExternalContext();
    Map cookies = externalContext.getRequestCookieMap();

    Cookie oram_info = (Cookie)cookies.get(“ORA_UCM_INFO”);

    String cookievalue = oram_info.getValue();

    here our problem is how can we know whether the user authenticated or not , using the default ADF security context object <af:outputText id="ot2" rendered="#{securityContext.authenticated}" , it's results user not authenticated

    how could you set that the user authenticated in to the default ADF securityContext.authenticated?

    I have a question regarding to Oracle SOA.

    We have two systems A and B. We need to create an EBF (Enterprise Business Flow) SOA composite to handle two way communications between these two system. The format of the message from system B to A is a subset format of message from A to B. We need to know if we can use only one EBF SOA composite to handle two way communications between systems A and B. Do we need to create a EBF SOA composite to handle message from A to B and another EBF SOA Composite to handle the message from B to A?

    Thank you in advance for your help.



  6. How we can request a support from A team? A customer mentioned about A team. So, I wonder how we can engage A team’s help.

    • The A-Team is given assignments based on priority from Oracle’s executive staff. You may be able to ask your account manager to request help, but I cannot say whether or not the A-Team will be assigned. That depends heavily on your particular situation.
