59.9 Configuring Single Sign-On for Office Documents

Single sign-on for Office documents can be achieved by setting a persistent cookie in the authentication scheme.

To do this using OAM 11g, you need to set ssoCookie=max-age in the authentication scheme. This creates a persistent cookie which lasts for more than one session.


For integration based on Windows Native Authentication, you do not need to set the persistent cookie parameter.

  1. Log in to the Oracle Access Management Console.
  2. Find the Authentication Scheme being used and open the page.
  3. In the Challenge Parameter, add:

    Where, time-in-seconds represents the time interval when the cookie expires. For example, ssoCookie=max-age=3600 sets the cookie to expire in 1 hour (3600 seconds).

  4. Save the change.
  5. Configure centralized logout for the 10g or 11g WebGate.
