Applies to:

Primavera Gateway - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to configure the data source for Primavera Gateway in WebLogic the following error occurs.

Error weblogic.common.resourcepool.ResourceSystemException: Could not create connection for datasource 'pi'. The returned message is: ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied. It is likely that the login or password is not valid. It is also possible that something else is invalid in the configuration or that the database is not available.

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

  1. Open the WebLogic console.
  2. Expand Services and go to Data Sources.
  3. Edit the pi data source. May also be named piDB.
  4. Under Connection Pool set the username, password and service name/sid for the connection.
  5. Connection fails when testing.
