Known Causes

Sometimes during the troubleshooting of a specific issue support may request that Single Sign On be completely disabled. How do I ensure it is completely disabled

Resolution

  • In order to disable Single Sign On entirely the changes to the xml files made to enable it must be removed.
    Please follow the steps below
    1. The mvasplsql must be have the authentication method of SSO Disabled.
      To do so comment out the AUTHENTICATION METHOD line in the xml file located at:

      $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/{OC4J Instance}/applications/mvasplsql/mvasplsql/WEB-INF/web.xml

      The following is the line that needs to be commented out
      <context-param>
           <param-name>AUTHENTICATION_METHOD</param-name>
           <param-value>SSO</param-value>
      </context-param>
    2. Change AUTHENTICATION_METHOD from SSO to BASIC in the following file:
      $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/{OC4J Instance}/application-deployments/sfasmm/sfasmm/orion-web.xml
    3. Ensure that AUTHENTICATION_METHOD is set to BASIC in the following file:
      $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/{OC4J Instance}/applications/mvasvue/mvasvue/ WEB-INF/web.xml
    4. Set MarkView database preference MV_ENABLE_SINGLE_SIGN_ON to FALSE
    5. This step will only need to be done if you use document upload and have enabled SSO in the DTM.
      Please comment out the following code in the dtm's web.xml
