- run-as principal: a security principal used by calls from the connector container into the resource adapter code during connection requests.
- run-work-as principal: a security principal used for Work instances launched by the resource adapter.
- manage-as principal: a security principal used for resource adapter management tasks, such as startup, shutdown, testing, and transaction management.
You can define a single default principal for all tasks, or define one or more of the other security principals; any security identities for which you do not specify a principal will use the default principal.
