Improved admin scripting features

Jython script library

The Jython script library provides a set of procedures to automate the most common appserver administration functions. For example, we can use the script library to configure...

We can run each script procedure individually, or combine several procedures to develop new scripts.

Wildcard pattern usage for the AdminTask help and AdminConfig list commands Use Java regular expression patterns and wildcard patterns with the command to query for command names and with AdminConfig.list, AdminConfig.types and AdminConfig.listTemplates functions to query for configuration object types.
Complex parameter type support Use primitive and complex Java data types for the parameters of the AdminTask commands.
AdminTask command support for configuring certificate authority (CA) clients Use wsadmin to manage certificate authority (CA) client configurations. Use the commands and parameters in the CAClientCommands group to create, modify, query, and remove connections to a third-party CA server.
AdminTask command support for configuring security auditing While security authentication and authorization ensures that users must have access to view protected resources, security auditing provides a mechanism to validate the integrity of a security computing environment. Security auditing collects and logs authentication, authorization, system management, security, and audit policy events in audit event records. We can analyze audit event records to determine possible security breaches, threats, attacks, and potential weaknesses in the security configuration of the environment.

Enable security auditing in the environment.

AdminTask command support for configuring multiple security domains

Create multiple security configurations and assign them to different applications in WAS processes. By creating multiple security domains, we can configure different security attributes for both administrative and user applications within a cell environment. Configure different applications to use different security configurations by assigning the servers or clusters or SIBuses that host these applications to the security domains. Only users assigned to the administrator role can configure multiple security domains.

AdminTask command support for configuring business-level applications

A business-level application is an administration model that provides the entire definition of an application as it makes sense to the business. A business-level application is a WebSphere® configuration artifact, similar to a server or cluster, that is stored in WAS configuration repository.

AdminTask command support for configuring a flexible management environment

Create a flexible management environment to locally or remotely submit and manage admin jobs. Use the job manager to manage applications, modify configurations, and control the appserver runtime.

AdminTask command support for managing configurations using properties files

Manage the system configuration using properties files. Use the commands in the PropertiesBasedConfiguration group to copy configuration properties from one environment to another, troubleshoot configuration issues, and to apply one set of configuration properties across multiple profiles, nodes, cells, servers, or applications.

AdminTask command support for configuring the WebSphere DataPower appliance manager

WebSphere DataPower appliance manager provides a set of capabilities for managing sets of appliances. DataPower appliance manager can be used to manage appliances with a or higher level of firmware. IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances are purpose-built network devices that secure and accelerate XML and Web services.

AdminTask command support for configuring proxy servers

Use the commands and parameters in the ProxyManagement group to configure proxy servers for Web modules.
