Configure Authorization providers

WebLogic Server offers the following types of Authorization providers:

Each security realm must have one at least one Authorization provider configured.

To configure an Authorization provider:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane, select Security Realms, then click the name of the realm you are configuring (for example, myrealm).
  3. Expand Providers > Authorization and click New.

    The Create a New Authorization Provider page appears.

  4. In the Name field of Create a New Authorization Provider, enter a name for the Authorization provider.
  5. From the Type drop-down list, select the type of the Authorization provider and click OK.
  6. Expand Providers > Authorization and click the name of the new Authorization provider to complete its configuration.
  7. Optionally, on the Configuration:Provider Specific page for the Authorization provider, check Policy Deployment Enabled. Do this if you want to store security policies that are created when you deploy a Web application or an Enterprise JavaBean (EJB).
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
  9. After you finish configuring the Authorization provider, reboot WebLogic Server.
