About application attribute data stores

Access Gateway Data Stores icon

Application attributes come from a variety of data stores or sources. The most common source is your Okta tenant. However, other data store types are supported as well, for example, Database and LDAP.

The Data Source field defines the source for the value of the attribute. The following data sources are available:

Data Source Description
IDP The value of the attribute is populated from the IDP field selected in the Value field. This is your Okta tenant.
Static The value of the attribute is fixed and defined in the Value field.
Secret The value of the attribute is a static protected value. It is used as a secret key by the application to trust the headers, which originate from Access Gateway.

OID

The value of the attribute comes from the OID data source. The OID data source is available in the Oracle E-Business Suite and other application types that provide LDAP support. You can use it to retrieve the Oracle GUID.

Auth Context The value of the attribute comes from the authentication context, which includes the remote address and session ID.
App Context The value of the attribute comes from the application context and includes fields, such as domain, cookie domain, and so on.
