Standalone Discoverer 10g (10.1.2.0.2) clients now fully SSO compliant for E-Business Suite users

This announcement just came in from the Applications Technology group, that does the certification of Discoverer releases on E-Business Suite versions (among a lot and lot of other things).

I am reproducing it verbatim below:

ANNOUNCEMENT
Standalone Discoverer 10g (10.1.2.0.2) clients are now fully Single Sign-On-compliant for E-Business Suite users.

E-Business Suite end-users who access E-Business Suite workbooks via standalone Discoverer 10g clients no longer need to dual-maintain user credentials in both Oracle Internet Directory and FND_USER.

With this upgrade:
  • Users may access E-Business Suite Discoverer workbooks via Discoverer's Connection Manager feature from standalone Discoverer clients, with user credentials managed in Oracle Internet Directory (NEW)
  • Users may access E-Business Suite Discoverer workbooks via E-Business Suite menus via E-Business Suite Home Page
  • Users may access E-Business Suite Discoverer workbooks via Oracle Portal and the E-Business Suite Applications Navigator and Applications Favorites portlets
Supported Platforms
  • Sun Solaris
  • Linux
  • Microsoft Windows
HP/UX and AIX support for this configuration is not yet available. The documentation will be updated as soon as those ports are released.
