Configure custom security providers

To configure a custom security provider:

  1. Write a custom security provider. For more information, see Developing Security Providers for Oracle WebLogic Server.
  2. Put the MBean JAR file for the provider in the WL_HOME\lib\mbeantypes directory.
  3. Start the WebLogic Server Administration Console.
  4. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  5. In the left pane, select Security Realms and click the name of the realm you are configuring (for example, myrealm).
  6. If you are adding a deployable Authorization or Role Mapping provider and that provider does not support parallel security policy or role modification, respectively, click Advanced and set the Deployable Provider Synchronization Enabled control. Either accept the default or enter a value for the Deployable Provider Synchronization Timeout control. For more information, see Developing Security Providers for Oracle WebLogic Server.
  7. From the Providers tab, select the tab for the type of provider you are configuring. For example, select the Authentication tab to configure a custom Authentication provider.
  8. Click New.

    The Create a New Provider page appears.

  9. In the Name field, enter a name for your custom security provider and select its type from the Type dropdown list.
  10. On the Configuration page for the Authentication provider, set the desired attributes on the Common and Provider-Specific tabs.
