Should I attempt to get an answer to
a problem in lieu of opening an SR?
Yes by all means, by using the forum you may get the answer
you need without opening an SR!
Not only do you have multiple Oracle experts viewing the IDM
forum, but I would suggest also using the search tool within the IDM forum.
As an example:
Let’s say you are
having OC4J_Security Startup Issues , Then you can just “Create a Post” or “Do a Search” and see if your issue
has already been addressed within the IDM MOSC.
1. Log in to the Identity Management Community
2. Enter as search criteria “OC4J security startup issue”
Notice there has been
numerous discussions about OC4J security startup issue and possibly one of
these will help you resolve your issue!
