Enable Identity-based Connection Pooling for a JDBC data source

Identity-based connection pooling allows applications to use a JDBC connection with a specific DBMS credential based on the end user application by pooling physical connections.

To enable identity-based connection pooling for a JDBC data source:

  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. Navigate to the data source that you want to modify:
  3. Select the Configuration: Identity Options tab.
  4. Select the Enable Identity Based Connection Pooling check box and then click Save.

    Note: Enable Credential Mapping and Enable Identity Based Connection Pooling are mutually exclusive. If you think you need both mechanisms to pass security credentials in your application environment, create seperate data sources -- one for with Enable Credential Mapping and one with Enable Identity Based Connection Pooling.

  5. Map WebLogic user credentials and DBMS credentials. See Configure credential mapping for a JDBC data source.
  6. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
