Hide Username And Password in URL for Oracle FORMS

Share

Username & password which is presented in addressbar like this :

For example the address is like this :

http://test.domain.com:7778/forms/frmservlet?form=login_testform.fmx&userid=username/password@instance

This shows that security is very low !!!

However, if all your users use the same username/password, you could specify this information in the FORMSWEB.CFG file; for example:

Go to you servers form configuration :

C:\DevSuiteHome_1\forms\server

And go and do this :

# Forms runtime argument: database connection details
userlogin: userid=username/password@instance%*

For now the address will be like this :

http://test.domain.com:7778/forms/frmservlet?form=login_testform.fmx&userlogin

You can also set the value in this file instead of setting it in URL.

Here is what URL look like

http://test.domain.com:7778/forms/frmservlet?config=ogidev_f

and here is some setting you can set in the config file

Code: [Select all] [Show/ hide]Hide Username & Password in URL for Oracle FORMS,Oracle FORMS,Hide Username and Password,form,formsweb.cfg
[ogidev_f]
envfile=OGIDEV_F.env
separateFrame=True
form=sag00m01.fmx
userid=user/pass@db
otherparams=p_code_lang_ora=F
