Create global request classes

Request classes express a scheduling guideline that WebLogic Server uses to allocate threads to requests.

To create a global request class:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Work Managers.
  3. Click New.
  4. Select the radio button next to the type of global request class you want to create and click Next.

    For more information on each request class type, see Using Work Managers to Optimize Scheduled Work.

  5. Enter the configuration information based upon the type of request class you are creating.

    For more information on configuring request classes, see:

  6. Click Next.
  7. In the Available Targets list, select server instances or clusters on which you will deploy applications that reference this request class.
  8. Click Finish.
  9. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).


The new request class appears in the Global Work Managers, Request Classes and Constraints table.

After you finish

After you have created a request class, you must assign it to a Work Manager in order to use it.

Note: Each Work Manager can contain only one request class, but you can share request classes among multiple Work Managers.
