    Load testing OracleBPM appliation with SSO enabled using OLT module of OATS

    Anuj Khattri
      I need to test a Oracle Business Process Management application on which single sign on is enabled using Oracle load testing module of Oracle Application Testing Suite.
      Do we need to perform any additional settings before capturing the scripts or its like simply parametrize the sso_username and sso_password with the SSO credentials in web/HTTP scripts.
      Thanks in anticipation.

      Best Regards,
      Anuj

          Are you ever typing in the SSO user/pass on a webpage, or is it SSO authentication at the operating system (network domain) level? If not typing on a web page, then the recording will probably not save the login information, so you will need to add authentication in the first line of your script. Be careful not to run the script without proper authentication, since the internal http module will endless loop until your network domain account gets locked out. Type this in the java view or I think you can right click on the first page of your script and choose add authentication:

          e.g.
          http.addAuthentication("http://www.YourRootApplicationUrl", "user","pass");

            Thanks for the reply, authentication is at the network domain level so probably this would help.
            Another follow up query is like, how different and difficult would be the troubleshooting of errors when we do the load test with SSO enabled as I am aiming for around 1 K users.
            We generally use the particiapnt id for seraching the OBPM engine and workspace logs along with the timestamp.

              I recently tested an SSO site the same way with 800 virtual users without any problem. I do not know enough about OBPM, though if the participant id is given to the client as a query string, post data, or cookie you will be able to parse that out and then print it to the java agent debug log file along with any other similar data that will help show the relationship to the real SSO user name.
