Does OUD work with Database having password schema other SHA-1, SSHA-1, or SHA-2 (Doc ID 2230310.1)

Last updated on JULY 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 11.1.2.3.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

By default users created in OUD have their password stored as Salted SHA-1 (SSHA-1). With one of these OUD users, we can successfully authenticate to an Oracle 10g/11g/12c database using a globally identified account.
However, for users with a stronger password storage scheme (like SHA-2 variants of SSHA-512 or SSHA-256), the following error is thrown on authentication
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

How to configure the database and OUD to allow for a stronger password storage scheme than SSHA-1?
