Create users

Before you begin

Read Manage users and groups and Use roles and policies to secure resources.

To create a user:

  1. In the left pane select Security Realms.
  2. On the Summary of Security Realms page select the name of the realm (for example, myrealm).
  3. On the Settings for Realm Name page select Users and Groups > Users.

    The User table displays the names of all users defined in the Authentication provider.

  4. Click New.
  5. In the Name field of the Create New User page enter the name of the user.

    User names must be unique. For the WebLogic Authentication provider (DefaultAuthenticator), user names are case insensitive. Additional user name restrictions may apply depending on the selected Authentication provider. Refer to the online help for the specific Authentication provider for more details.

  6. (Optional) In the Description field, enter a description. The description might be the user's full name.
  7. In the Provider drop-down list, select the Authentication provider for the user.

    If multiple Authentication providers are configured in the security realm, they will appear in the list. Select which Authentication provider’s database should store information for the new user.

  8. In the Password field, enter a password for the user.
    The minimum password length for a user defined in the WebLogic Authentication provider is 8 characters. Do not use the username/password combination weblogic/welcome1 in production.

    Note: Oracle recommends that you configure the Password Validation provider in the security realm after you create a domain. The Password Validation provider can be configured to impose additional password composition rules. For more information, see Configure the Password Validation provider.

  9. Re-enter the password for the user in the Confirm Password field.
  10. Click OK to save your changes.

    The user name appears in the User table.

After you finish

  • If the user is created in the WebLogic Authentication provider (also known as the Default Authentication provider), you may optionally set attributes for the user. For instructions, see Manage values for user attributes.
  • For more efficient management, Oracle recommends adding users to groups. For instructions, see Add users to groups.
