About Federation

Oracle Integration uses both Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS).

  • Manage permissions using policies in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's IAM service.

  • Create and manage users in Oracle Identity Cloud Service. By default, most tenancies are federated with Oracle Identity Cloud Service. For more information about Oracle Identity Cloud Service, see Understanding Administrator Roles in Administering Oracle Identity Cloud Service.

For background information on federation with Oracle Identity Cloud Service, see Federating with Identity Providers and Federating with Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
