Generic Error Message is Displayed in WebCenter Portal Login Page/Taskflow (Doc ID 2593593.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A generic exception is returned in the Login page whether the user submits incorrect credentials or the user is locked in the LDAP server. Behavior is same in both an out-of-box installation and an external LDAP server integrated environment. For example, if a user inputs incorrect credentials (for example incorrect password) the following message is displayed to the user:

EXCEPTION: User name and password do not match.

If a locked user submits credentials (even if they are correct) the same message as above is displayed.

Can this exception message be customized?
