Connection With Secure External Password Store requires "Save Password"

(Doc ID 1548578.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version 3.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using Secure External Password Store (SEPS) - which uses a credential stored in a wallet - in the connection window, the "Save Password" has to be selected
(and username/password can be left empty). Connecting this way is working fine.

However, when the "Save Password" checkbox is not checked, then there is a popup window requesting username/password (both fields are blank), and then connecting fails.
It would be great if username/password fields of popup could be left empty and that wallet is used in this case.
