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. See for information about default RAD as this is a special type of RAD. If Oracle Delegated Administration Services (DAS) is available, RADs can easily be created in 11g OID using a GUI interface. 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 .
