Configuring Unicode for Oracle databases

You must configure each database used in the HCL Connections deployment for Unicode. Configuration for Unicode must be set before Connections installation because it cannot be set after installation.

About this task

Installation must be performed so the AL32UTF8 character set is used. This is mandatory for proper Unicode handling by Connections and must be set properly at install time, since it cannot be modified after installation.


  1. On the Initialization Parameters page, click the Character Sets tab.
  2. Select the Use Unicode (AL32UTF8) option.
    Note: Leave Create As Container Database unselected.
