General Questions

What do I use this application for?

This application lets us generate keys and certificates that let your system access additional software packaged by Oracle. For some software applications, Oracle must verify that you have accepted one or more license agreements, which this application will present to you as part of granting you access to the repository.

As a general rule, software served by for Solaris is not redistributable by you to a third party.

When I login, why don't I see the product I expect to access in the list of available products?

This application shows products based on your entitlements. It will also show all public products.
If you don't see the product you are looking for, please contact your Oracle Service Representative.

I just signed up for an Oracle Online account, but I still can't log in to the registration application!

Unfortunately it sometimes takes time for the underlying identity system to distribute your credentials. We are investigating solutions to this problem, and apologize for any inconvenience. Our experience is that your login should become available within 24 hours of initial signup.

I get an error from the Oracle Access Manager when trying to log in!

If you get the following error message from the Oracle Access Manager please check if you have Cookies enabled in your browser. You won't be able to log in with Cookies disabled.

System error. Please re-try your action. If you continue to get this
error, please contact the Administrator.

Can I still use my old, product-specific certificates?

Yes, the old, product-specific certificates from the previous versions of this application will continue to work until the certificates themselves expire. Then you can just replace them with the new certificate from this application.

Advanced Questions

How can I examine the certificate and key?

The certificate is an x509 certificate in PEM format. To print it out, you can issue:

openssl x509 -in certfilename -text

This is useful if you want to know the expiration date of the certificate.

The key is simply an RSA key in PEM format, so printing it is not likely to help you very much. If you want to print it, issue:

openssl rsa -in keyfilename -text
