Compatibility security refers to the capability to run security configurations from WebLogic Server 6.x in this version of WebLogic Server. In Compatibility security, you configure 6.x security realms, define users, groups, and ACLs, manage the protection of user accounts, and install custom auditing providers. The only security realm available in Compatibility security is the CompatibilityRealm. This page allows you to define the general configuration of the CompatibilityRealm for this WebLogic Server domain.
The Auditing provider installed from this page must be an implementation of the
weblogic.security.auditinterface. This interface is deprecated in this release of WebLogic Server. The
guestuser is automatically provided in Compatibility security. When authorization is not required, WebLogic Server assigns the

guestuser. A client can log in as the
guestuser by entering
guestas the username and password when prompted by a Web browser or in a Java client. By default, the
guestaccount is disabled. For a more secure deployment, Oracle recommends running WebLogic Server with the
