Configure Apache Tomcat for MobileFirst Server administration

You must configure the Java™ EE security roles for the MobileFirst Server administration on the Apache Tomcat web application server.


Procedure

  1. If you installed the MobileFirst Server administration manually, declare the following roles in the conf/tomcat-users.xml file.

    <role rolename="mfpadmin"/> <role rolename="mfpmonitor"/> <role rolename="mfpdeployer"/> <role rolename="mfpoperator"/>

  2. Add roles to the selected users, for example:

    <user name="admin" password="admin" roles="mfpadmin"/>

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