Configure Microsoft Entra SSO
Complete the following steps to enable Microsoft Entra single sign-on.
Browse to Identity > Applications > Enterprise applications > Oracle IDCS for PeopleSoft > Single sign-on.
On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.
On the Basic SAML Configuration section, perform the following steps:
a. In the Identifier textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
b. In the Reply URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
c. In the Sign on URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
These values are not real. Update these values with the actual Identifier, Reply URL and Sign on URL. Contact Oracle IDCS for PeopleSoft support team to get these values. You can also refer to the patterns shown in the Basic SAML Configuration section.
Your Oracle IDCS for PeopleSoft application expects the SAML assertions in a specific format, which requires you to add custom attribute mappings to your SAML token attributes configuration. The following screenshot shows an example for this. The default value of Unique User Identifier is user.userprincipalname but Oracle IDCS for PeopleSoft expects this to be mapped with the user's email address. For that you can use user.mail attribute from the list or use the appropriate attribute value based on your organization configuration.
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Federation Metadata XML and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.
Configure Oracle IDCS for PeopleSoft SSO
