Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using Read-only SQL authentication provider in WebLogic security realm to authenticate end-users. When using WebLogic admin console to display users: Summary of Security Realms >myrealm >Users and Groups, the users are shown as expected but there are lots of database connections opened to backend database. For example, prior to displaying users:

$ ss -pn | grep <admin pid> | grep <database port> | wc -l

Show users in security realm: Summary of Security Realms >myrealm >Users and Groups. 

$ ss -pn | grep <admin pid> | grep <database port> | wc -l

This behavior can eventually consume all database connections leading to hang / outage scenario.
