Not Able To Set The Password For OSR In The Database With More Than 8 Characters Of Length (Doc ID 2340585.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Service Registry - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After the successful installation of OSR, the initial password was changed by the DBA with respect to the security policies (more than 8 characters). This caused the unavailability of the registry with the error reported below.
Then the password was changed back to one with 8 characters in order to restore the service.


ERROR: application_core:com.systinet.uddi.config.CipherHelper - Cannot decrypt value (Input length must be multiples of 8).
EXCEPTION: Input length must be multiples of 8
javax.crypto.IllegalBlockSizeException: Input length must be multiples of 8

Due to this issue, it is not possible to set a more secure password.
