J2C authentication data entry settings

Use this page as a central place for administrators to define authentication data, which includes user identities and passwords. These values can reference authentication data entries by resource adapters, data sources, and other configurations that require authentication data using an alias.

You can display this page directly from the JAAS configuration page or from other pages for resources that use J2C authentication data entries. For example, to view this administrative page, you can click either...

Security | JAAS Configuration | J2C Authentication Data Entries


Resources | WebSphere JMS Provider | WebSphere Queue Connection Factories | connection_factory | J2C Authentication Data Entries

Deleting authentication data entries: Be careful when deleting authentication data entries. If the deleted authentication data is used by other configurations, the initializing resources process fails.
