Remove user registries using scripting


Use wsadmin to remove user registries from global security or security domain configurations. Use the steps in this topic to remove LDAP, local operating system, custom, or federated repository user registries from the global security or security domain configurations. You must meet the following requirements before configuring local operating system user registries:

 

  1. Launch the wsadmin scripting tool using the Jython scripting language.

  2. Determine the registry to remove. Use the getUserRegistryInfo command to display information about a user registry from the global security configuration or in a security domain. Specify the type of user registry of interest. Valid values are LDAPUserRegistry, WIMUserRegistry, CustomUserRegistry, and LocalOSUserRegistry.

    The following command returns a list of values in the local operating system user registry object for the domain2 security domain, as the following example Jython demonstrates:

    AdminTask.getUserRegistryInfo('-securityDomainName domain2 -userRegistryType LocalOSUserRegistry')

  3. Determine whether the registry of interest is the active user registry.

    We cannot remove the active user registry. Use the getActiveSecuritySettings command to see check if the user registry is the active user registry before removing it.

  4. Remove the registry of interest. Use the unconfigureUserRegistry command to remove the registry of interest. If we remove the user registry from the global security configuration, then the command reduces the registry object to the minimum values for the configuration. If we remove the user registry from a security domain, then the command removes the configuration object from the security domain.

    The following Jython example removes the local operating system user registry configuration from the domain2 security domain:

    AdminTask.unconfigureUserRegistry('-securityDomainName domain2 -userRegistryType LocalOSUserRegistry')

  5. Save the configuration changes...

    AdminConfig.save()
