3       Limitations and Known Issues

3.1      Limitations

 

·      In order to support entering the first-factor password and Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) separately, the sqlplus client must run on a machine capable of displaying an X-based UI.

·      No capability currently exists to bypass Multi-factor Authentication for some users. This functionality is planned for a future release.

 

3.2      Known Issues

 

·      If the database login times out before the FreeRADIUS server returns a response, the error “ORA-12631: Username retrieval failed” will appear in the logs. The database timeout may need to be increased in this case.
