Issue/Introduction

 

We're planning of a Web Agent installation and we'd like to know if
Web Agent is supported on ORDS (Oracle REST Data Services)
web-listener ?

 

Environment

 

Web Agent 12.52SP1CR10 on Apache 2.4.46 on RedHat 7;

 

Resolution

 

At first glance, according to our Support Matrix, there's no support
of Web Agent for ORDS on date of Aug 28th 2020. This means that Web
Agent hasn't been developped for ORDS, and as such, it has never been
tested internally for that sake.

Reading that ORDS is mainly based on RESTful transaction, you probably
can protect the ORDS by setting CA API Gateway in front of it.
