IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Enable user ID and password input from soap.client.props for SOAP connector types- UNIX - WAS agent

The Configuration Tool and the silent configuration provide means for you to retrieve the user ID and password (instead of entering them in the panel or silent configuration option) from the soap.client.props file when using a SOAP connection to WebSphere and WebSphere Global Security is enabled. In order for this function to work, set properties in the soap.client.props file. Perform the following procedure:

  1. Set the following properties in AppServer_home/profiles/profile_name/properties/soap.client.props:
    com.ibm.SOAP.securityEnabled=true
    com.ibm.SOAP.loginUserid=user_ID
    com.ibm.SOAP.loginPassword=password

  2. Run the following command to encrypt the password:
    ./PropFilePasswordEncoder.sh 
      AppServer_home/profiles/profile_name/properties/soap.client.props 
      com.ibm.SOAP.loginPassword
    Run it from the AppServer_home/profiles/profile_name/bin directory.
