The Credential Store for your WebCenter Sites system is created by your installation engineers. All system passwords created for WebCenter Sites and Satellite Server are encrypted and stored here.
The following topics provide information about the Credential Store and instructions for managing the WebCenter Sites and Satellite Server properties stored in the Credential Store:
Oracle WebCenter Sites encrypts and stores all WebCenter Sites and Satellite Server system password properties in the Credential Store. System properties are created during installation.
The Credential Store is an OPSS schema that your WebCenter Sites installation engineers create using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU) provided by WebLogic Server. When your installation engineers create a JRF domain, it provides the required security artifacts the domain uses to connect to the OPSS schema (the Credential Store). Each WebLogic JRF domain has a Credential Store attached to it. Any password property that you create for WebCenter Sites or Satellite Server is encrypted and then stored in the Credential Store on your system’s domain. For more information about Credential Stores, see Configuring Credential Store Properties.
During the WebCenter Sites and Satellite Server installations, initial system passwords are encrypted and stored in the Credential Store.
Use the Property Management Tool in the Admin interface to modify the values of the WebCenter Sites properties stored in the Credential Store. Any changes you make to a WebCenter Sites Credential Store property from the Property Management Tool is automatically stored back in the Credential Store when you save your changes.
