Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) fails when certificates are involved and Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.8.0_161 or JDK 1.7.0_171 (or later) has been installed.

For example, Node manager fails with the error:

Error: missing demo identity file

Or while verifying the preferences in ODI Studio, a pop-up message will appear with the following:

"Validation Failed"

"Unable to locate the keystore ODI_HOME\wlserver\server\lib\DemoIdentity.jks. The keystore must exist at the specified location."


Cannot find identity keystore file ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/domains/base_domain/security/DemoIdentity.jks
