Change the default security realm

Before you begin

Configure a new security realm and reboot WebLogic Server. See Configure new security realms.

By default, a realm named myrealm is the default security realm when you install WebLogic Server.

To change the default security realm:

  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 your domain to open the Settings page for your domain.
  3. Expand Security > General.
  4. Select the security realm you want to set as the default security realm and click Save.

    Note: If you create a new security realm but do not configure the required security providers, the realm will not be available from the pull-down menu.

  5. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
  6. Reboot WebLogic Server. If you not reboot WebLogic Server, the new realm is not set as the default security realm.

    To verify that you set the default security realm correctly:

  7. Open the Security Realms page.

    The Realms table appears. All the realms available in the domain are listed. The default security realm has the Default Realm set to true.
