Announcing New Database Password Rotation with Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.5 RU1

In release EM13.5 RU1, EM has expanded automation for password rotation capabilities to include non-monitoring database users. In previous releases, password rotation automation was available only for the default database monitoring (dbsnmp) users using the job type “Change the Password for the Database Monitoring User”. The new feature is available using a new job type “Change the Password for a Database User”.

Since it is available as a job, this provides you flexibility in scheduling when and how often passwords should be changed. The job can be run against many databases at a time, greatly reducing the time it would take to complete the password rotation task. This is especially beneficial when working with hundreds or thousands of databases.
