Before you begin
If automatic realm restart is enabled, you do not need to restart WebLogic Server after activating non-dynamic changes to security providers. See Enable automatic realm restart and Using Automatic Realm Restart.
Role mapping is the process whereby principals (users or groups) are dynamically mapped to security roles at runtime. In WebLogic Server, a Role Mapping provider determines what security roles apply to the principals stored in a subject when the subject is attempting to perform an operation on a WebLogic resource. Because this operation usually involves gaining access to the WebLogic resource, Role Mapping providers are typically used with Authorization providers.
Note: The WebLogic Role Mapping provider is deprecated in WebLogic Server 220.127.116.11.0 and will be removed in a future release. Instead, the XACML Role Mapping provider is the default provider.
