Related Tasks     Related Topics

Use this page to specify a URL pattern in this Web application module and to create a security role that can be used only in the policy that you have defined for the URL pattern.

Configuration Options

Name Description
URL Pattern

A string that represents the path to a Web application resource.

To secure a resource within the application, enter the path to the resource, for example: /MyServlet.jsp

To secure the entire contents of a Web application contained in an EAR, enter a single slash: /

In WebLogic Server version 8.x the two characters / * were used by the security container to indicate the entire Web application contents. In versions later than 8.x, Oracle recommends that you use the / character, as it is the standard J2EE syntax used by the Servlet container. If you want to continue using /* you need to disable the EnforceStrictURLPattern field.

The name of the scoped role.

Do not use blank spaces, commas, hyphens, or any characters in the following comma-separated list: \t, < >, #, |, &, ~, ?, ( ), { }. Security role names are case sensitive. All security role names are singular and the first letter is capitalized, according to convention. The proper syntax for a security role name is as defined for an Nmtoken in the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Recommendation.

If you create a scoped role with the same name as a global role, the scoped role takes precedence over the global role.

Provider Name

Lists all role mapper providers that support role editing though the console that have been configured for the realm.
