Configure authorization providers

Before you begin

If automatic realm restart is enabled, you do not need to restart WebLogic Server for non-dynamic changes made to the security providers to go into effect. See Enable automatic realm restart and Using Automatic Realm Restart.

WebLogic Server offers the following types of authorization providers:

Note: The WebLogic Authorization provider is deprecated in WebLogic Server and will be removed in a future release. Instead, the XACML Authorization provider is the default provider.

Each security realm must have one at least one authorization provider configured.

To configure an authorization 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, then click the name of the realm you are configuring (for example, myrealm).
  3. Expand Providers > Authorization and click New.

    The Create a New Authorization Provider page appears.

  4. In the Name field of Create a New Authorization Provider, enter a name for the authorization provider.
  5. From the Type drop-down list, select the type of the authorization provider and click OK.
  6. Expand Providers > Authorization and click the name of the new authorization provider to complete its configuration.
  7. Optionally, on the Configuration:Provider Specific page for the authorization provider, check Policy Deployment Enabled. Do this if you want to store security policies that are created when you deploy a Web application or an Enterprise JavaBean (EJB).
  8. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
