Identity Management Jobs have grown exponentially (specially in last one year) and Oracle is among Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for IAM. In this post I am going to cover how to learn Oracle Access Manager and things you should learn for Oracle Access Manager (OAM).

What is Oracle Access Manager : If you don’t know already Oracle Access Manager (OAM) is Oracle’s recommended Single Sign-On (SSO) solution for Web Access Management.

Why should you learn OAM : Single Sign-On and Web Access Management is very important for securing applications. With Cloud bases SAAS applications, it is more important for enterprises to implement federated Sign-On (Federation is now part of OAM in 11gR2 version). Oracle Access Manager (OAM) is also mandatory in Oracle Fusion Applications.

What roles are available for OAM : You can be an OAM Architect, Administrator, Implementor, or Developer.

What should I learn in OAM : For all the OAM roles, you should have fair understanding of Architecture, Component, and functionality of OAM. If you are an Architect, Administrator or Implementor then you also know Installation, Configuration, Integration , High Availability & Disaster Recovery setup.  If you are developer then you should be able to write authentication modules, policies , custom login pages etc.

Where can I learn OAM : If you prefer self learning then you can refer to Oracle’s Documentation on OAM or attend Oracle University Course (costs 4200 USD) or attend our Online Live Training on OAM (costs 997 USD)next batch starts on 4th July (We provide Full Money back guarantee for 7 Days) .

What topics should I look in OAM Training :  To start with , you should learn minimum

  • Architecture of Oracle Access Manager (OAM)
  • Overview of WebLogic Server and Fusion Middleware
  • Overview of Oracle Identity & Access Management (OAM, OIM, OID, OUD, OAAM, OES..)
  • Installation & Configuration of OAM
  • Install & Configuration of OHS & WebGates
  • Migration of OSSO 10g to OAM 11g
  • Authentication & Authorization policies in OAM
  • Protecting resources using SSO
  • OAM Integration with LDAP Server (OID or OUD)
  • Deploying OAM in High Availability
  • Common Integration Scenarios for OAM
  • Overview of Oracle Identity


I am Oracle Apps DBA /DBA should I also learn OAM : Yes, you should learn Oracle Access Manager (OAM) as Apps DBAs with OAM experience earn 25-40% more. Single Sign-On is quite common these days and with Oracle Fusion Applications (OAM is mandatory in Fusion Apps), it is important that you learn Oracle Access Manager (OAM).

I still have some more queries related to OAM : Contact our OAM experts for any query related to OAM training requirements or post a comment here .
