Add an Oracle WebLogic Server application

The purpose of this tutorial is to walk through the process of setting up an Oracle WebLogic Server application through the Access Gateway Admin UI console.

Before you begin

Ensure that:

  • Access Gateway is installed and configured for use.
    See Manage Access Gateway deployment.
  • Access Gateway has been configured to use your Okta tenant as IDP.
    See Configure your Okta tenant as an Identity Provider for more information about configuring your Okta tenant as an IDP.
  • You have administrator rights on your Okta tenant and can assign applications to users and create groups.
  • An external Oracle WebLogic Server based application which requires protection.
  • The external app version is supported. Oracle Weblogic Server supported versions include:
    • v10.3.6 (11g) or later
  • Appropriate DNS entries for both the legacy application and the exposed new URL exist.
  • Appropriate DNS entries for both the protected application and the external URL for example:

    ValueDescription
    https://weblogic.externalexample.comExternal or customer facing application URL.
    https://weblogic.internalexample.com

    Internal or protected application URL.

This application is part of a class of applications which exchange user information using header variables. See Add a generic header application for more information about the Access Gateway generic header application.

Access Gateway also provides a sample header application. See Add a sample header application.
