naming service user settings

Use the Administrative User Roles page to give users specific authority to administer appservers through tools such as the admin console or wsadmin scripting. The authority requirements are only effective when global security is enabled. Use the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) naming service users settings page to manage CORBA naming service users settings.

To view the Console Users admin console page, complete either of the following steps:

To view the CORBA naming service groups admin console page, click Environment > Naming > CORBA Naming Service Groups.

User (Administrative user roles)

Specifies users.

The users that are entered must exist in the configured active user registry.

Data type: String

User (CORBA naming service users)

Specifies CORBA naming service users.

The users that are entered must exist in the configured active user registry.

Data type: String

Role (Administrative user roles)

Specifies user roles.

The following admin roles provide different degrees of authority that are needed to perform certain appserver admin functions:

Administrator

The administrator role has operator permissions, configurator permissions, and the permission that is required to access sensitive data including server password, LTPA password and keys, and so on.

Operator

The operator role has monitor permissions and can change the run-time state. For example, the operator can start or stop services.

Configurator

The configurator role has monitor permissions and can change the WAS configuration.

Deployer

The deployer role can complete both configuration actions and run-time operations on applications.

Monitor

The monitor role has the least permissions. This role primarily confines the user to viewing the appserver configuration and current state.

adminsecuritymanager

The adminsecuritymanager role has privileges for managing users and groups from within the admin console and determines who has access to modify users and groups using admin role mapping. Only the adminsecuritymanager role can map users and groups to admin roles, and by default, AdminId is granted to the adminsecuritymanager.

iscadmins

The iscadmins role has administrator privileges for managing users and groups from within the admin console only.

To manage users and groups, click Users and Groups Click either Manage Users or Manage Groups.

Data type: String
Range: Administrator, Operator, Configurator, Deployer, Monitor, and iscadmins

Other arbitrary admin roles might also be visible in the admin console collection table. Other contributors to the console might create these additional roles, which can be used for applications that are deployed to the console.

Role (CORBA naming service users)

Specifies naming service user roles.

A number of naming roles are defined to provide degrees of authority that are needed to perform certain appserver naming service functions. The authorization policy is only enforced when global security is enabled.

The following roles are valid: CosNamingRead, CosNamingWrite, CosNamingCreate, and CosNamingDelete.

The roles now have authority levels from low to high:

CosNamingRead

We can query the appserver name space by using, for example, the JNDI lookup method. The EVERYONE special-subject is the default policy for this role.

CosNamingWrite

We can perform write operations such as JNDI bind, rebind, or unbind, plus CosNamingRead operations.

CosNamingCreate

We can create new objects in the name space through operations such as JNDI createSubcontext and CosNamingWrite operations.

CosNamingDelete

We can destroy objects in the name space, for example using the JNDI destroySubcontext method and CosNamingCreate operations.

Data type: String
Range: CosNamingRead, CosNamingWrite, CosNamingCreate and CosNamingDelete

Login status (Administrative user roles)

Whether the user is active or inactive.
