Values:

  • AZURE_AD - Enables the database to use Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) as an external identity provider.

    When you specify this value, you must also specify configuration settings for Azure AD by setting the IDENTITY_PROVIDER_CONFIG initialization parameter.

    When you specify this value, there is no need to specify configuration settings with the IDENTITY_PROVIDER_CONFIG initialization parameter.

  • NONE - The database will not use Azure AD or OCI IAM as an external identity provider.

Note:

Setting the value of this parameter is only one step in a series of steps for configuring an external identity provider for the database. Refer to Oracle Database Security Guide for the complete set of steps for configuring Azure AD or OCI IAM before you set this parameter value.
