Oracle OIC - ERP Adapter with OAuth Authentication

Oracle has introduced an OAuth authentication mechanism to access ERP application using ERP adapter in OIC. 

This will solve the following security issues. 

  1. Can maintain user credentials in IDCS. 
  2. Wont require to reset the passwords during P2T refresh. 
  3. Better security compared to basic authentication. 
  4. Authentication will work even password will get expired in IDCS or Fusion.
