While configuring Simple Mode Communication with Access Manager, Artifacts generated for Simple Security mode use the Global Pass phrase and any change must be propagated to WebGates.
Access Manager generates a random global passphrase for Simple mode communication during installation. So, to proceed we can either change the global passphrase or retrieve it. Changing the global passphrase in OAM Console requires reconfiguring all agents that are already configured in Simple mode. Retrieving the global passphrase and using it is relatively simpler and saves a lot of effort 🙂
To retrieve the random global passphrase, follow the below steps:-
a) Ensure that the Oracle Access Management Console is running.
b) Connect to WLST.
c) Run below wlst commands:-
wls:/offline> connect() Please enter your username :weblogic Please enter your password : Please enter your server URL [t3://localhost:7001] :t3://www.oraworld.co.uk:7001 Connecting to t3://www.oraworld.co.uk:7001 with userid weblogic ... Successfully connected to Admin Server 'AdminServer' that belongs to domain 'oam_domain'. Warning: An insecure protocol was used to connect to the server. To ensure on-the-wire security, the SSL port or Admin port should be used instead. wls:/oam_domain/serverConfig> domainRuntime() Location changed to domainRuntime tree. This is a read-only tree with DomainMBean as the root. For more help, use help(domainRuntime) wls:/oam_domain/domainRuntime> displaySimpleModeGlobalPassphrase() p5lq9481ql52tcujqu3jjakn5k wls:/oam_domain/domainRuntime>
d) Now we can proceed to update the Webgate Registration step.
