Oracle Forms Architecture

Before you begin

Ensure that:

  • Verify that Access Gateway is installed and configured. See Manage Access Gateway deployment.
  • Verify that Access Gateway uses your Okta org as an Identity Provider (IdP). See Configure an Identity Provider in Access Gateway.
  • Verify that you have administrator rights on your Okta org and can create groups and assign applications.
  • You have an external Oracle Forms-based application that requires protection. Access Gateway supports Oracle Forms v10g 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 exist. For example:
    https://app-forms.externalexample.comExternal or customer facing application URL.

    Internal or protected application URL of Oracle Forms application.

This application uses header variables to exchange user information. You can use the Access Gateway sample header application. See Add a generic header application and Add a sample header application.
