Update the Database Schema Password in Oracle Integration Classic

When you create an instance in Oracle Integration Classic, relevant database schemas are created in the associated Oracle Database Cloud Service (DBaaS) instance. These database schemas are required for Oracle Integration Classic to function properly.

Some of these database schemas are associated with:

  • The core Oracle Integration Classic functionality (such as Integration, Process, and Visual Builder).
  • The non-Oracle Integration Classic-specific functionality such as OPSS and other critical services that Oracle Integration Classic depends on.

These database schemas are used within the data sources defined for the Oracle Integration Classic instance.

For security reasons, the password for the database schemas expires after 180 days. If the password expires, it disrupts the functionality of the Oracle Integration Classic instance and potentially leads to system downtime. It is highly recommended that you update the database schema password within 180 days of the instance creation as described below in this section.

We strongly recommend that you note the new password. It will be required for subsequent instance patching attempts.


If you actively use Visual Builder, file a service request to get help from Oracle Support to complete the standard operating procedures required for the Visual Builder specific schemas.
