Web Service Requires Authentication Login Configuration in WebLogic-webservices.xml if it is to be Enforced in Weblogic 12.1.2 or Later (Doc ID 1637078.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An unsecured webservice was deployed with WebLogic 12.1.1 with a blank login config defined in weblogic-webservices.xml, and it could be accessed without giving security credential (as expected).
After Migration to WebLogic 1212, when accessing the same url, it asks for security credentials. One may login using any user (even a user without group) of the realm.
