Scope of Invoking Reference Priority Override Property (Doc ID 2456671.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 18, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Web Services Manager - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When there is a requirement to execute a particular policy before any other policy in an OSB Proxy Service, a configuration override, reference.priority is used

This allows an administrator to indicate a preference over which policy attachment is used. By default, an attached policy has a reference.priority of 0 if no other value has been specified.

This document covers a scenario where wrong set of policies are selected to verify the execution of policy as per reference.priority override property.


The requirement is to execute Personally Identifiable Information (PII) policy before any other policies in an OSB Proxy Service.

Two policies used are:

a.) a Log Policy attached with reference.priority = 1
b.) a PII Policy attached with reference.priority = 0

While attempting to use the reference.priority override as per this document , the following was noticed in terms of execution order:

- Security Policies are executed first.
- Then Management (Log) gets executed.

So here in above case the Log policy will always execute after any Security Policies ignoring the reference.priority value.
