    How to authenticate Weblogic Admin Console through Active Directory

    Roshni Shankar
      Hi All,

      I am using WebLogic Server 10.3.4, I integrated my weblogic server with microdoft Active Directory. Now I want to login in my weblogic administration console with the users present in Active Directory. Can anyone please tell me how can I login in weblogic administration console with the AD username and password. Do I need to create weblogic user and administrator group in AD ?

      Please guide!!

          1 ) You would have create a AD authentication provider on weblogic. Use Active Directory Authentication provider from the drop down when you create it.

          2) After step1 you should be able to see the AD users in WLS console.

          3) Let say user1 is the AD user with which you want to login.

          Home >Summary of Security Realms >myrealm >Realm Roles >Realm Policies >Realm Roles

          Expand Global Roles-->roles

          4) click "View Role Conditions " in front of Admin

          5 ) click on add condition , select user

          enter your user name .

          Note: Make sure you use OR option don't user AND option.
          Imp. Take backup of LDAP folder and config.xml before making any changes as this is very sensitive.

          Let me know if you get stuck anu where.

            Hi

             

            I have integrated the AD successfully and I can see all the AD users from my admin console (Weblogic).

             

            We are using IPM (Webcenter content imaging) as our front end system and now i can't log in to the ipm system with previous admin login.

             

            I can log in to other urls without any issue. (Em, console, cs)

             

            what will be the problem ??

             

            And how can i add ipm groups to the AD users ????

             

            Thanks,
