What is a Refinery Admin and how is a user granted the role.


For more information on Refinery Admin see documentation:  -->  WebCenter Content link   ---> Search:  Managing Repository Authentication --->  Open following link:

22.1 Managing Refinery Authentication and Users

As a managed server running within an Oracle WebLogic Server domain, user and group access to Inbound Refinery is controlled by Oracle WebLogic Server and system security configuration is handled through the WebLogic Server console.

If additional services are required, such as Oracle Internet Directory or single sign on using Oracle Access Manager, these can be linked to the Oracle WebLogic Server domain managing Inbound Refinery using WebLogic Server controls.

When deployed, the refineryadmin Inbound Refinery role has permissions to administer Oracle Inbound Refinery. Any user needing administration rights to Inbound Refinery must be part of the corresponding refineryadmin group in Oracle WebLogic Server.


There are three options for configuring a user to allow a user to login into the IBR UI as an administrator.  This Knowledge Note discusses all three.
