Java 2 Connector authentication data entry settings

Use this panel as a central place for administrators to define authentication data, which includes user identities and passwords. These values can reference authentication data entries by resource adapters, data sources, and other configurations that require authentication data using an alias.

We can display this page directly from the Java™ Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) configuration page or from other pages for resources that use J2EE Connector (J2C) authentication data entries. To view this admin page...
