After using script to encrypt dads.conf passwords, access to the applications is requesting to provide credentials even when storing in the dads.conf for automatic authentication.

Encrypt the password in dads.conf by executing command:

perl -f <ORACLE_INSTANCE/config/OHS/ohs1/mod_plsql/dads.conf

When accessing the application, it should run without asking for credentials to be provided.


Encrypting password in dads.conf is the only change affecting this. Following the below documentation:
