How to Implement a SQL Authenticator Based on Users from the dba_users Table (Doc ID 1300951.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The objective is to implement a SQL Authenticator based on users from the dba_users table (Oracle DB). The authenticator works fine (it retrieves users from the table), but the problem is the password. A plain-text password doesn't work, and the hashed password from the database (for example, 52AC06A0FEDCD444) has to be provided in order to authenticate users.
