OpenAM Community Logo OpenAM 10.0.0 supports WebLogic 12c as a container.

First download and install WebLogic 12c for example under /path/to/wls.

  3. Follow the Install Application Assistant instructions.
  4. Browse to the OpenAM console such as to configure OpenAM.
    If you are not sure what to configure, see the Install Guide for hints.
