Set the JAAS control flag

Before you begin

Before performing the steps in this topic:

Understand how the JAAS Control Flag is used to control the authentication process. See Choosing an Authentication Provider.

Review the options for the JAAS Control Flag and understand how they effect the authentication process. See Setting the JAAS Control Flag Attribute.

To set the JAAS control flag:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane, select Security Realms, then click the name of the realm you are configuring.
  3. Select Providers > Authentication.

    The Authentication Providers table displays the name of the Authentication and Identity Assertion providers.

  4. Click the name of the provider you want to configure.
  5. Select Configuration > Common and set the Control Flag. The available values are:
  6. Click Save.
  7. To activate these changes, in the Change Center, click Activate Changes.

After you finish

Restart WebLogic Server so that your changes can take effect.

Note: The WebLogic Server Administration Console actually sets the JAAS Control Flag to OPTIONAL when you create a new security provider. The default value for out-of-the-box security providers is REQUIRED.
