Custom Plug-Ins

Oracle Access Manager provides APIs that allow software developers to write custom programs or components that integrate closely with Oracle Access Manager. These modules may represent anything from custom extensions of base Oracle Access Manager functionality to significant applications that are outside of Oracle Access Manager, but need to interact with Oracle Access Manager for identity or access control functions.

Use of Custom Plug-Ins is not permitted in the Access Manager Basic License.

LDAP

The Access Manager Basic License only permits the use of Oracle Internet Directory for the storage of identity and policy data—no other directory use is permitted.
