You must have already familiarized with the federation and partner concepts before you start to manage identity federation partners.
You must have completed the following task:
The integrated Identity Federation server supports the transport and receipt of request and response messages using either the Security Access Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 specifications, SAML 1.1, OpenID 2.0 or WS-Federation 1.1. Thus, Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP) partners can be created with any of these protocols defined. SAML and OpenID partners can be defined using the Oracle Access Management Console. WS-Federation partners can be created using WLST commands.
