Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports the ability to update your sqlnet.ora parameters. The sqlnet.ora file includes parameters that configure Oracle Net features on Oracle Database servers and clients. Using these parameters, you can modify properties for connections in and out of the database.

You can update sqlnet.ora parameters on RDS Oracle instances through the existing parameter group mechanism. You can choose between the two apply-methods, "pending-reboot" and "immediate"; this will help in staging the changes together with your potential code changes. sqlnet.ora parameters will be prefixed with 'sqlnetora.'.

You can view sqlnet.ora parameters and their settings through the RDS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or a SQL client. For more information about setting sqlnet.ora parameters, see the RDS Oracle documentation.

Amazon RDS for Oracle makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale Oracle database deployments in the cloud. See the AWS Region Table for regional availability.
