    1. Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with B.Simon.
    2. Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable B.Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  2. Configure SSOGEN - Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite - EBS, PeopleSoft, and JDE SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create SSOGEN - Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite - EBS, PeopleSoft, and JDE test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in SSOGEN - Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite - EBS, PeopleSoft, and JDE that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  3. Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.

Configure Azure AD SSO

Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.

  1. In the Azure portal, on the SSOGEN - Azure AD SSO Gateway for Oracle E-Business Suite - EBS, PeopleSoft, and JDE application integration page, find the Manage section and select single sign-on.
