Setting up SAML SSO with Azure AD and Oracle EPBCS/PBCS
SummaryHow to guide on setting up Single Sign On with Azure AD for Planning Cloud
Azure Active Directory (AD) is Microsoft’s directory and Identity and Access Management (IAM) service in the cloud as opposed to ADFS, a Windows on-premise, claims-based Security Token Service (STS). In a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) federation, however, Azure AD and ADFS are functionally equivalent acting as Identity Provider (IdP) for a Service Provider (SP) such as a cloud-based application. Previously, we have discussed SAML federation with ADFS and Oracle PBCS here. In this discussion, we outline the high-level steps to establish SAML SSO between Azure and Oracle Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service (EPBCS).
