Setting Up Oracle Fusion Sources

Using Oracle SES, you can search for documents within Oracle Fusion applications. This is done by establishing a connection between Oracle SES and Oracle Fusion using a Fusion Connector. To connect to and retrieve documents from Oracle Fusion, you must set up an Oracle SES-Fusion identity management system using an identity plug-in, and an authorization management system using an authorization plug-in.

The identity plug-in enables Oracle SES to identify the set of users that can access the Fusion application. The authorization plug-in enables Oracle SES to determine the access rights that each user has for accessing different documents and data within WebCenter. Usually, all users may not have access to the entire data and document set within the application. Instead, each user may have access to a limited set of documents and data.

Setting up Identity Management System

The identity management system enables Oracle SES to identify the set of users that can access the Fusion application. This is implemented using an identity plug-in.

To activate an identity plug-in for Fusion sources:

  1. On the Global Settings page, click Identity Management Setup to open the Identity Management Setup page.

  2. From the list of available sources, select Oracle Fusion, and click Activate.

    This opens the Activate Identity Plug-in page.

  3. Enter values as described in Table 9-14. Obtain the values from the Fusion application administrator.

  4. Click Finish.
