Configure Credential Mapping Providers

A Credential Mapping provider allows WebLogic Server to log into a remote system on behalf of a subject that has already been authenticated. You must have one Credential Mapping provider in a security realm, and you can configure multiple Credential Mapping providers in a security realm.

WebLogic Server includes the following Credential Mapping providers:
  • the WebLogic Credential Mapping provider, which is the standard Credential Mapping provider for the WebLogic Security Framework. Note that the Administration Console refers to the WebLogic Credential Mapping provider as the Default Credential Mapper.
  • the PKI Credential Mapping provider.
  • the SAML Credential Mapping provider (for SAML 1.1).
  • the SAML 2.0 Credential Mapping provider (for SAML 2.0).

To configure a Credential Mapping 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 and click the name of the realm you are configuring (for example, myrealm).
  3. Select Providers > Credential Mapping.

    The Credential Mapping Providers table lists the Credential Mapping providers configured in this security realm.

  4. Click New.

    The Create a New Credential Mapping Provider page appears.

  5. In the Name field, enter a name for the Credential Mapping provider.
  6. From the Type drop-down list, select the type of the Credential Mapping provider and click OK.
  7. Select Providers > Credential Mapping and click the name of the new Credential Mapping provider to complete its configuration.
  8. Select Configuration > Provider Specific and set the desired values.
  9. Click Save to save your changes.
  10. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes and then restart WebLogic Server.
