Some external components require some form of authentication before allowing their services to be accessed. Developing components or applications often comes with the question of where to store the respective credentials needed to connect those external services. Oracle FMW provides a Credential Store in which these credentials can be managed in a central and secure place. It also provides a set of functions that can be used with WLST to create, list and edit those credentials. Unfortunately these functions only allow you to create password credentials and not generic credentials. In this blog I will demonstrate how to create these generic credentials using WLST.
OPSS defines two types of credentials: password and generic. Password credentials store user names and passwords and can be created using the createCred function in WLST. Generic passwords encapsulate any customized data or arbitrary token. To create a generic password using WLST you will have to use the JpsCredentialStore MBean. The following code shows how to do it: Read the complete article here
