Credentials

Creating credentials for a WebLogic domain

This sample demonstrates how to create a Kubernetes Secret containing the credentials for a WebLogic domain. The operator expects this secret to be named following the pattern domainUID-weblogic-credentials, where domainUID is the unique identifier of the domain. It must be in the same namespace that the domain will run in.

To use the sample, run the command:

$ ./create-weblogic-credentials.sh -u <username> -p <password> -d domainUID -n namespace -s secretName

The parameters are as follows:

  -u user name, must be specified.
  -p password, must be specified.
  -d domainUID, optional. The default value is domain1. If specified, the secret will be labeled with the domainUID unless the given value is an empty string.
  -n namespace, optional. Use the default namespace if not specified.
  -s secretName, optional. If not specified, the secret name will be determined based on the domainUID value.

This creates a generic secret containing the user name and password as literal values.

You can check the secret with the kubectl get secret command. An example is shown below, including the output:

$ kubectl -n domain-namespace-1 get secret domain1-weblogic-credentials -o yaml
apiVersion: v1

  password: d2VsY29tZTE=
