How To Reset ODI Wallet Password Without The Existing Password

(Doc ID 1982522.1)

Last updated on JUNE 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 11.1.1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Prior to logging into Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Studio for the first time, you must create a login name for which you specify your ODI login credentials.

These credentials include your ODI user name and password, and also the ODI Master Repository database user name and password.

ODI can save these credentials in either an encrypted login XML file or a password-protected Wallet. By default, they are saved in a password-protected Wallet.

As shown in the documentation, resetting the Wallet password through ODI Studio UI requires you to enter the old password first:

Topic §11.4 Using a Password-Protected Wallet for Storing Login Credentials

A user who has Wallet passwords currently enabled cannot simply disable Wallet passwords.

When deselecting preference "ODI > User Interface > Save Login Credentials into Wallet", a "Enter Wallet Password" dialog is shown.

This means the user who forgot the wallet password cannot reset Wallet passwords and drop all stored passwords.
