Custom Multi-Factor Authentication for Agile PLM

1.  Application Overview 

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) makes your Oracle Agile PLM access more secure. Agile doesn’t provide MFA OOTB (out of the box). Xavor’s Agile MFA provides the additional security check over existing login. Users can log in by providing a One-Time Password (OTP) that is sent to their registered email in Agile. Integration with third-party MFA providers allows seamless implementation of the MFA with Agile. 

2. Standalone MFA 

MFA is embedded in the current login page for Agile. Users are asked to provide an OTP once they try to log in. The OTP is then shared on their email addresses registered in Agile. No user can log in without the OTP.  

A customized text provides users with instructions on where to find the code. You can also add additional information like helpdesk and expiration limit to the text. In case of an incorrect code or expired code, a customized message is shown to the users.

2.1  How it Works

Standalone implementation of Agile MFA works seamlessly with the existing Agile login flow. Once a user lands on the login page of the right PLM solutions and enters their credentials, they are not logged in directly.  

Instead, the user is asked to enter the OTP sent to their email address. After entering the OTP, verification is performed, and the user is allowed to log into agile. If the user is added to an exception list, the OTP prompt is not provided, and the user can directly log into Agile. 


How PLM works


2.2  Platform Requirements 

Standalone MFA implementation in Agile requires the following items only: 

  • Database connection 
  • SMTP host 
  • Tomcat server 

3. Integration with DUO 

DUO is one of the MFA providers. With DUO, users can get push notifications on their phones or use access codes sent to their phones. Xavor’s MFA provides integration of DUO’s MFA with Agile. With DUO enabled users are prompted with a DUO authentication form once they enter their credentials. They can select their desired way of authentication on the form. It could be a push notification or an access code sent to their phones. Once verified, the user is allowed to log into Agile.
