How to Create Default Resource Access Descriptors (RADS) for Forms 11g (Doc ID 1390533.1)

Last updated on MARCH 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 11.1.1.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Forms 11g Release 1, Forms 11g Release 2, OID 11g


Goal

Resource Access Descriptors (RADs) are used by Forms and Reports when Single Sign-On (SSO) is configured for the products. The RAD name matches a specific configuration section in the formsweb.cfg. The RAD contains specific DB connect information such as username, password and DB connect string and is normally associated with a specific OID user.  If Oracle Delegated Administration Services (DAS) is available, Default RADs can easily be created in 11g OID by using the steps in <Note 262686.1>.

However, at the time of this note's writing, only 10gR2 DAS is available and is not configured by default when 11g OID is installed.   Please see the Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Identity Management, 11g Release 1 and <Note 1364497.1 >.

If DAS is not available, this note describes how to create a Default RAD using LDAP commands.

Note:  The Default RAD provides Forms SSO/OID users access to the database listed in the Default RAD without having to create a RAD for each SSO/OID user. If a Default RAD is not used, a RAD needs to be created for each individual SSO/OID user.
