Configure the Java EE security roles on Apache Tomcat

You must configure the Java™ EE security roles for the Application Center on the Apache Tomcat web application server.


Before you begin

Review the definition of roles at Configuring user authentication for Application Center.


Procedure

  1. In the Apache Tomcat web application server, you configure the roles of appcenteruser and appcenteradmin in the conf/tomcat-users.xml file. The installation creates the following users:

    <user username="appcenteradmin" password="admin" roles="appcenteradmin"/> <user username="demo" password="demo" roles="appcenteradmin"/> <user username="guest" password="guest" roles="appcenteradmin"/>

  2. We can define the set of users as described in the Apache Tomcat documentation, Realm Configuration HOW-TO.
