How to move from OAM to Okta

Oracle Access Manager is challenging to maintain and provides limited app protection possibilities. Use this recipe to replace it with Okta without refactoring your apps.

  • Quickly modernize an application from legacy to modern authentication
  • Future-proof an application via identity abstraction
  • Move and improve application policy protection

How everything comes together to authenticate.

App users don’t care what IDP you authenticate with — they care that it works. Use Identity Orchestration to deliver smooth consistency.

  • Familiar login. Users head to the same screen and start the app authentication flow.
  • Invisible redirection. Behind the scenes, Maverics evaluates the app policy in the config and directs the user to Okta.
  • Quick authentication. The user enters their Okta details, gets authenticated, and logs in. Everything in the app looks the same as before.

Switching to a modern IDP stopped being optional when support started crumbling. Use Identity Orchestration to modernize for good. 

  • Prepare your work surface. Define the upstream application, and the port Maverics will use to communicate with the app. 
  • Set the rules. Define the basic policy that enforces authentication to Okta and define how Maverics will provide context to the upstream application.
  • Configure. Using the declarative YAML-based config file, set Maverics up as an authentication gateway and give it the right permissions to direct users correctly.
