Applies to:

Oracle REST Data Services - Version 18.1.1 and later

ORDS 18.1.1 and above.

When enabling the new feature to use database authentication, ORDS does not ask for database credentials.

Expected behavior: Get a login screen asking for database credentials.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

On an  already working ORDS installation for accessing only plsql procedures (not apex) configure a new database and URL mapping:
1.) $java -jar pls.war setup --database db_auth_test                      << pls is a renamed ords.war
2.) $java -jar pls.war map-url --type base-path /db_auth_test
3.) $java -jar pls.war set-property jdbc.auth.enabled true                    <<<<<<<


 Trying to use Database Authentication for existing mod_plsqp procedures, according to the instructions included in the ORDS distribution under: </path/to/ords>/examples/db_auth.
