  • 1.  CA API Authentication with OIM

    Hi All,


    I don't have good idea on OIM and OAM. I know that CA API Gateway provides assertion for OAM. We have requirement were CA API Gateway need to use OIM(Oracle Identity Management for authentication) for authentication.Can OIM be used as identity provider for CA API gateway or Can we integrate CA API Gateway with OIM for authentication.

    Any info regarding above will be useful.

    OIM is an Identity Management tool to provide User Management, Self-Service, Password Management, Delegated Administration, Provisioning/De-provisioning...etc and does not have Access Management capability whereas OAM has got Authentication/SSO/SAML capabilities.


    I believe your requirement is to integrate CA API gateway with OAM for Authentication/SSO.  CA APIM can be integrated with OAM and it is supported as per below article.

    The API Gateway does not specifically support OIM at this time, but there is indeed OAM support. I'm not very familiar with OIM as it's a third-party product, but if it supports LDAP in full (and to spec), then we should be able to work with it as we are LDAP compliant.
