OIC OAuth Support

FlexDeploy now supports use of OAuth authentication for Oracle Integration Cloud. You can follow the below steps for configuring OAuth for OIC.

The following OAuth methods are currently supported:

  • Resource Owner

  • JWT User Assertion (@5.5.0.2)

JWT User Assertion

JWT User Assertion requires an ssl certificate to be uploaded to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and referenced in FlexDeploy. The key can be self signed or from a more trusted chain.

  1. Generate certificate

  2. Create Oracle Identity Application with the JWT Assertion grant type

  3. Add public key to Oracle Identity Console

  4. Create FlexDeploy Cloud Account

1. Generate certificate

If you already have a public/private key and their keystore location feel free to skip this step.

The first 3 steps to this process are nicely outlined by Oracle in this blog: https://www.ateam-oracle.com/authentication-and-user-propagation-for-api-calls

The private key MUST have a passphrase otherwise you may see an error:

"Cannot recover Key"

For this section, see the heading: Create a Signing Key Pair. Be sure this is done on the FlexDeploy server or the server when your OIC workflows will run.

2. Create Oracle Identity Application with the JWT Assertion grant type

The first 3 steps to this process are nicely outlined by Oracle in this blog: https://www.ateam-oracle.com/authentication-and-user-propagation-for-api-calls

For this section, see step 1 under the heading: Configuring IDCS. This process is also outlined below for Resource Owner, however you need to be sure to select the correct grants and upload your certificate.

3. Add public key to Oracle Identity Console

The first 3 steps to this process are nicely outlined by Oracle in this blog: https://www.ateam-oracle.com/authentication-and-user-propagation-for-api-calls

For this section, see step 2 under the heading: Configuring IDCS.

4. Create FlexDeploy Cloud Account

Lastly you need to create a cloud account in FlexDeploy specifying your client application information as well as the certificate information.

 

Resource Owner

  1. Create a Confidential Application in Identity Console

  2. Create FlexDeploy Cloud Account

1. Create a Confidential Application in Oracle Identity Console

  • Give it a meaningful name such as ‘FlexDeploy OAuth App’. On the client configuration select Configure this application as a client now. Be sure to select the grant type of Resource Owner and add scopes for the your OIC Instances where you want to use this application.

  • Copy the scope that ends in /ic/api to notepad

  • You can accept the default values throughout the rest of the configuration.

  • Copy the client id and secret that show up after completing the application (you can access this from the configuration tab as well)

  • Activate your application

2. Create the Cloud Account in FlexDeploy
