Data Relationship Management requires Oracle Hyperion Foundation Services to be installed when the following optional features are used:
User authentication with external user directories such as LDAP.
Load balancing Data Relationship Management Web applications
Using single-sign on with Data Relationship Management
Integrations with Oracle General Ledger for E-Business Suite and Fusion Accounting Hub
API programs and SOA-based processes using the Data Relationship Management web service
The Foundation Services installation includes the following components that must be configured to enable these features for Data Relationship Management:
Oracle Weblogic Server
Oracle HTTP Server
Oracle Web Services Manager
Oracle Hyperion Shared Services
Foundation Services must be installed on a Windows server where the Data Relationship Management application server component is also installed. If Foundation Services is also installed on a different machine (for example, a Linux server), the instance of Foundation Services installed on the Windows server does not need to be in a running state, but must be configured with the same Shared Services database.
For considerations and procedures to install Foundation Services, see the "Installing EPM System Products" chapter of the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Installation and Configuration Guide.
