Last updated on FEBRUARY 22, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3.2 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

According to the WLS10.3.x documentation for restricting Access to Resources here, if the protected resource is accessed, it will throw a challenge for authentication. 

The query here is: Instead of throwing a challenge for authentication, is it possible to show '403' error to indicate to the user that resource is not available?
