Subject Re: Removing IS admin username and password from config files in PGA
Date Fri, 08 May 2015 12:39:59 GMT

The requirement was to remove admin credentials from the config files for
security reasons and call the admin services only when the admin user login.

Perhaps Suresh can provide more insight on the requirement.
