EM 12c, EM 13c: What are the Privileges Required to Set / Use Global Preferred Credentials Set for Target? (Doc ID 2182561.1)

Last updated on JUNE 22, 2021

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Beginning with Enterprise Manager Release, preferred credentials can be globally scoped. Global preferred credentials provide a convenient way to implement system-wide credentials by allowing an administrator (with required privileges) to apply these credentials to all users for a specific target or to apply them to all users for a target type.

Setting the global preferred credentials will allow all the EM users who have privileges on the targets, to use the credentials for performing any activities against the target. For example, this will allow the database login page to be bypassed (not displayed), while accessing the Database administration and performance related pages in the console UI.
This document lists the privileges that are required to set or use the global preferred credentials set for a target or target type.
