Spotlight on Oracle 10.4 - Release Notes

User Account

Select one of the available options.

Field Description
Create a new user

This user does not have an Oracle account on the database.

Create a new Oracle user that Spotlight can use to connect to the database.

Set up an existing user

The user has an Oracle account on the database, but has not been configured to use Spotlight on Oracle.

Use this option if there is an existing account on the target Oracle database that you want to use when connecting via Spotlight on Oracle.

Reconfigure "user" for use with Spotlight

(Available when a new version of Spotlight on Oracle has been installed.)

Use this option if you want to connect to an Oracle database as a user that was set up within a previous version of Spotlight on Oracle.

Note: This option is available only if Spotlight detects that the current user has been configured using an earlier version of Spotlight on Oracle.

Note: You should not use any system accounts as your Spotlight user account. We recommend creating a separate user for Spotlight or using a personal account.

Note: (Oracle 12c) As per Oracle guidelines, the Spotlight Oracle user needs to be of the form “c##<username>” when connecting to an Oracle 12c Container database.
