Re-order authentication providers

The way you configure multiple authentication providers can affect the overall outcome of the authentication process, which is especially important for multipart authentication. Authentication providers are called in the order in which they are configured. The Authentication Providers table lists the authentication providers in the order they are called. You can use the table to change the order of the providers. Be aware that the way each authentication provider's Control Flag attribute is set effects the outcome of the authentication process. For more information, see Set the JAAS control flag.

Note: If you Enable automatic realm restart in the security realm, you do not need to restart WebLogic Server after activating changes to security providers.

To change the ordering of authentication providers:

  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 the Security Realms page.
  3. Click the name of the realm you are configuring (for example, TestRealm).
  4. Select Providers:Authentication page.
  5. Click Reorder.
  6. Select an authentication provider from the list of configured authentication providers and use the arrow buttons to move it up or down in the list.
  7. Click OK to save your changes.
  8. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
