Goal

The Oracle Content Server instance can use OracleTextSearch with an external database that is not the "system database". If you select this option, you must provide the name of the external data source on the post-configuration page after starting WCC for the first time.  This note describes that process, as well as how to setup an external data  source on a WCC instance where content already exists in the system (and therefore the post-configuration page cannot be used).
