D Oracle Adaptive Access Manager Properties

This appendix provides essential properties used by Oracle Adaptive Access Manager.

D.1 Properties

Action Override

The Action Override feature is turned off by default. To enable action overrides, set the following property to "true":


Authenticator Phrase

To customize the phrase in the virtual authentication device, set the following parameter:



To enable autolearning properties:

Set vcrypt.tracker.autolearning.use.auth.status.for.analysis and vcrypt.tracker.autolearning.use.tran.status.for.analysis properties to true.

  1. Ensure that vcrypt.tracker.autolearning.enabled is set to true.

    This property must always be set to true. It is like a "master (on/off) switch" for autolearning.

  2. Set the following properties to true:

    • vcrypt.tracker.autolearning.use.auth.status.for.analysis

      This property must be set to true for the authentication patterns to work. Authentication patterns are the patterns that analyze the data related to authentication (login) related information only.

    • vcrypt.tracker.autolearning.use.tran.status.for.analysis

      This property must be set to true for the transaction-related patterns to work. Transaction related patterns are the one that analyze the transaction related data for autolearning. An example is a pattern that profiles users who are performing wire transfer operations.

  3. If the properties do not exist, create them.

Case in Username

If you want the username to be in lowercase, set to false.

Configurable Actions

To enable the configurable actions feature, set dynamicactions.enabled to true.


For the enumerations to be listed in the Properties Editor, you must set the following property to false:


Expiry Behavior for CSR Cases

To set "expiry" behavior for CSR cases (default setting), modify the following properties: = expiry = Expired = 24 = false

To disable the "expiry" behavior for CSR cases, modify the following property: = none 


Ensure the property is set to true.

The "Questions user will register" setting should be between 3 and 7. This provides enough questions to offer good security but does not over burden a user's memory. The basic industry standard for KBA is 3 registered questions.

The max and min limits are configurable through the following properties.


Proxy Mode Setting

Out of box, OAAM Server is configured to be in non-proxy mode with the flag bharosa.uio.proxy.mode.flag set to false by default.

The user must explicitly configure OAAM Server to be used in proxy mode.


To enable scheduler by default in OAAM Admin, the following property should be set to true:

vcrypt.reports.scheduler.activate property

Transactions in Session Details

Before you can view transactions in the Session Details page, you must set the property to show transactions to true.

Setting the property to false turns off the display for transactions.

Out-of-the-box Jobs include Monitor data rollup.

D.2 OTP Properties

OTP Properties and their default values are listed as follows:

Challenge Availability

bharosa.uio.default.challenge.type.enum.ChallengeQuestion.available = true

bharosa.uio.default.challenge.type.enum.ChallengeEmail.available = true

D.3 Time Zone

A time zone identifies an area that always shares the same local time.

To set the time zone that will be used for all timestamps in the user interface, use the Property Editor to set oaam.adf.timezone to the desired time zone.

For example,

oaam.adf.timezone = Atlantic/Reykjavik
