Oracle SSO configuration with Alfresco

Hi,

I finally configured Oracle SSO with Alfresco. Below is how i achieved that.

I need to run Alfresco on tomcat deployed on other virtual terminal, i created a class file as under

-> STEP 2 Place this class file under
C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\my\custom

-> STEP 3 Now you need to configure proxy pass in oc4j's httpd.conf file


$ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/httpd.conf, add the following entries:                                                                                    ProxyPass /alfresco/ http://host:8080/alfresco/

ProxyPass /alfresco http://host:8080/alfresco/


ProxyPassReverse /alfresco/ http://host:8080/alfresco/

ProxyPassReverse /alfresco http://host:8080/alfresco/


-> STEP 4 Now you need to enable sso on oracle portal

edit $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/mod_osso.conf, add the following lines just before the :

require valid-user
AuthType Basic


require valid-user
AuthType Basic


Please restart apache after you have made this configuration

-> STEP 5 If alfresco is already running then stop and start alfresco service from start menu under start -> alfresco -> stop alfreco virtual server

Thats it, now oracle sso is configured successfully for Alfreco

Try opening http://oc4jserverhost/alfresco, it will redirect to oracle portal sso login page, enter credentials, it will then redirect you to alfresco home page on successful login.

LOGOUT Link

Coming towards logout functionality, i need to make some changes to use oracle portal logout instead of alfresco built in logout.

You need to edit file C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\jsp\parts\titlebar.jsp


search for
a:actionLink


now replace that line with
a:actionLink id="logout" image="/images/icons/logout.gif" value="#{msg.logout} (#{NavigationBean.currentUser.userName})" rendered="#{!NavigationBean.isGuest}" href="http://hostname/pls/orasso/orasso.wwsso_app_admin.ls_logout?p_done_url=http%3A%2F%2Fhostname%2Falfresco" immediate="true"


Thats it, now logout functionality is integrated with oracle sso.

Any issues implementing this, feel free to contact me..

A nice book on smaller, faster, better way to build software

Last week, my friend sent me a link which contains great amount of information for building, testing and all other phases for software development.
