Enable global trust between domains

Before you begin

When this feature is enabled, identity is passed between WebLogic Server domains over an RMI connection without requiring authentication in the second domain. When inter-domain trust is enabled, transactions can commit across domains. A trust relationship is established when the Domain Credential for one domain matches the Domain Credential for another domain.

By default, the Domain Credential is randomly generated and therefore, no two domains will have the same Domain Credential. If you want two WebLogic Server domains to interoperate, you need to replace the generated credential with a credential you select, and set the same credential in each of the domains.

Instead of enabling global trust between domains, consider using the CrossDomainConnector role, as described in Enable cross domain security between domains.

  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, click the name of the domain.
  3. Select Security > General. Scroll down and click Advanced.
  4. Enter a password for the domain in the Credential text field. Choose the password carefully. Oracle Systems recommends using a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.
  5. Click Save.
  6. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes. If automatic realm restart is enabled in the default realm, you do not need to restart WebLogic Server for changes to go into effect.

After you finish

Perform the same procedure in each domain for which you want to enable global trust.
