Tutorial: Configure Oracle Fusion ERP for automatic user provisioning

The objective of this tutorial is to demonstrate the steps to be performed in Oracle Fusion ERP and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to configure Azure AD to automatically provision and de-provision users and/or groups to Oracle Fusion ERP.

Note

This tutorial describes a connector built on top of the Azure AD User Provisioning Service. For important details on what this service does, how it works, and frequently asked questions, see Automate user provisioning and deprovisioning to SaaS applications with Azure Active Directory.

This connector is currently in Preview. For more information on the general Microsoft Azure terms of use for Preview features, see Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews

Prerequisites

The scenario outlined in this tutorial assumes that you already have the following prerequisites:

Assign Users to Oracle Fusion ERP

Azure Active Directory uses a concept called assignments to determine which users should receive access to selected apps. In the context of automatic user provisioning, only the users and/or groups that have been assigned to an application in Azure AD are synchronized.

Before configuring and enabling automatic user provisioning, you should decide which users and/or groups in Azure AD need access to Oracle Fusion ERP. Once decided, you can assign these users and/or groups to Oracle Fusion ERP by following the instructions here:

Important tips for assigning users to Oracle Fusion ERP

  • It is recommended that a single Azure AD user is assigned to Oracle Fusion ERP to test the automatic user provisioning configuration. Additional users and/or groups may be assigned later.

  • When assigning a user to Oracle Fusion ERP, you must select any valid application-specific role (if available) in the assignment dialog. Users with the Default Access role are excluded from provisioning.

Setup Oracle Fusion ERP for provisioning

Before configuring Oracle Fusion ERP for automatic user provisioning with Azure AD, you will need to enable SCIM provisioning on Oracle Fusion ERP.

  1. Sign in to your Oracle Fusion ERP Admin Console

  2. Click the Navigator on the top-left top corner. Under Tools, select Security Console.

    Oracle Fusion ERP Add SCIM

  3. Navigate to Users.

  4. Save the username and password for the admin user account which you will use to log into the Oracle Fusion ERP admin console. These values need to be entered in the Admin Username and Password fields in the Provisioning tab of your Oracle Fusion ERP application in the Azure portal.

To configure Oracle Fusion ERP for automatic user provisioning with Azure AD, you need to add Oracle Fusion ERP from the Azure AD application gallery to your list of managed SaaS applications.

To add Oracle Fusion ERP from the Azure AD application gallery, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, in the left navigation panel, select Azure Active Directory.

    The Azure Active Directory button

  2. Go to Enterprise applications, and then select All applications.

    The Enterprise applications blade

  3. To add a new application, select the New application button at the top of the pane.

    The New application button

  4. In the search box, enter Oracle Fusion ERP, select Oracle Fusion ERP in the results panel.

Configure automatic user provisioning to Oracle Fusion ERP

This section guides you through the steps to configure the Azure AD provisioning service to create, update, and disable users and/or groups in Oracle Fusion ERP based on user and/or group assignments in Azure AD.

Tip

You may also choose to enable SAML-based single sign-on for Oracle Fusion ERP, following the instructions provided in the Oracle Fusion ERP Single sign-on tutorial. Single sign-on can be configured independently of automatic user provisioning, though these two features compliment each other.

To configure automatic user provisioning for Fuze in Azure AD:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal. Select Enterprise Applications, then select All applications.

    Enterprise applications blade

  2. In the applications list, select Oracle Fusion ERP.

    The Oracle Fusion ERP link in the Applications list

  3. Select the Provisioning tab.

    Provisioning tab

  4. Set the Provisioning Mode to Automatic.

  5. Under the Admin Credentials section, input https://ejlv.fa.em2.oraclecloud.com/hcmRestApi/scim/ in Tenant URL. Enter the admin user name and password retrieved earlier into the Admin Username and Password fields. Click on Test connection between Azure AD and Oracle Fusion ERP.

  6. In the Notification Email field, enter the email address of a person or group who should receive the provisioning error notifications and check the checkbox - Send an email notification when a failure occurs.

  7. Click Save.

  8. Under the Mappings section, select Synchronize Azure Active Directory Users to Oracle Fusion ERP.

  9. Review the user attributes that are synchronized from Azure AD to Oracle Fusion ERP in the Attribute-Mapping section. The attributes selected as Matching properties are used to match the user accounts in Oracle Fusion ERP for update operations. Select the Save button to commit any changes.

  10. To configure scoping filters, refer to the following instructions provided in the Scoping filter tutorial.

  11. To enable the Azure AD provisioning service for Oracle Fusion ERP, change the Provisioning Status to On in the Settings section.

    Provisioning Status Toggled On

  12. Define the users and/or groups that you would like to provision to Oracle Fusion ERP by choosing the desired values in Scope in the Settings section.

    Provisioning Scope

  13. When you are ready to provision, click Save.

    Saving Provisioning Configuration

    This operation starts the initial synchronization of all users and/or groups defined in Scope in the Settings section. The initial sync takes longer to perform than subsequent syncs, which occur approximately every 40 minutes as long as the Azure AD provisioning service is running. You can use the Synchronization Details section to monitor progress and follow links to provisioning activity report, which describes all actions performed by the Azure AD provisioning service on Oracle Fusion ERP.
