By implementing Oracle Single Sign-On, your users can access multiple Oracle Cloud services using one set of credentials. Also, logging out of one service logs a user out of all other services.
As administrator, you configure SSO because you want to use identity federation between Oracle Cloud as service provider and an external identity provider. This task requires you to configure Oracle Cloud as service provider, prepare your identity provider, test your SSO configuration, and finally, enable SSO.
