Before you begin
Note: When using the WebLogic Server Administration Console, or WLST, you can create users only in the following databases:
To create users in other identity stores — for example, any external LDAP server — you must use the tools available with those stores. In addition, if you customize the default security configuration to use a custom Authentication provider, you must use the administration tools supplied by that security provider to create a user. If you are upgrading to the WebLogic Authentication provider, you can load existing users and groups into the embedded LDAP server. For more information, see Migrating Security Data.
To create a user:
User names must be unique. For the WebLogic Authentication provider (DefaultAuthenticator), user names are case insensitive. User names must not include tabs or any of the following characters:
\(note that two consecutive backslashes may be used; for example
In addition, user names must not begin with either of the following characters:
Important: If a user is created with any of the preceding invalid characters, the WebLogic domain can become corrupted.
If multiple Authentication providers are configured in the security realm, they will appear in the list. Select the Authentication provider that corresponds to the database in which the information for the new user is to be stored.
Note: Oracle recommends that you configure the Password Validation provider in the security realm after you create a domain. The Password Validation provider can be configured to impose additional password composition rules. For more information, see Configure the Password Validation provider.
The user name appears in the User table.
