The iI have written the authentication procedure. and now where do i call it? how it get attached with login page?
This thread might help:
You can use [url http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37097_01/doc/doc.42/e35125/sec_authentication.htm#BABFBCFJ]Custom Authentication Scheme for this purpose wherein Authentication Function Name parameter is set to a function or packaged function returning boolean.
there is no need to write an authentication procedure!
1) In Shared Components -> Authentication create a new authentication of type "LDAP Directory".
2) Under "Settings" enter the connect information for your AD server.
3) For "Distinguished Name (DN) String(Value Required)" enter
where mydomain has to be replaced by the domain you use in your company.
