OUD vs CMU

Hello OUD Gurus,

With oracle introducing CMU, I am trying to understand what is the future of OUD? And if OUD is going to stay around, what would be the difference between OUD & CMU?

Thanks,

    If the query is regarding 18c/19c DB and CMU then it does make it easier to set up the whole identity store concept by not having an extra layer in OUD.

    So technically, yes, you can have a system which need not use OUD but have just CMU for user authentication from DB.

    AFAIK OUD is going to stay around for quite a long while and be used as the de-facto user store for all other applications.

    This is my 2 cents on this topic.
