[Mismatch with server cert DN] Update JDBC Data Sources for Autonomous Database In Oracle WebLogic Server For OCI (Doc ID 2928680.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server for OCI - Version N/A to N/A
Information in this document applies to any platform.


DigiCert retired the Organizational Unit (OU) field for all public TLS/SSL certificates to comply with industry standards as of August 2022 per their announcement. This means that the public TLS/SSL certificates issued by DigiCert will not have the OU field anymore. This may affect existing applications, tools and/or services that are connecting to the Autonomous Database (ADB-S) instance.

How will this affect my service?

As noted in "ALERT: Action Required for Autonomous Databases" (Doc ID 2911553.1) the TLS/SSL certificates used to connect to the Autonomous Database will have the OU field removed by March 6th, 2023. Therefore, the existing connection strings used in WebLogic Server Data Sources that connect to an Autonomous Database will no longer be valid after March 6th, 2023. If you have WebLogic Server installations created prior to January 10th, 2023 and have data sources that connect to an Autonomous Database you must update the connection string and possibly update your JDBC drivers.
