Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMBARI-7323) Prompt user for admin credentials at install time rather than using default credentials
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2014 02:05:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-7323?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14138396#comment-14138396
] 

David Jorm commented on AMBARI-7323:
------------------------------------

It looks like the patch may be a little involved, as a lot of the test cases depend on the
hard-coded admin/admin credentials. I'll work on this as soon as I find time.

> Ambari includes hard-coded default admin/admin credentials. Many users fail to change
default credentials, so this represents a serious security risk. It would be preferable to
prompt for the admin password at install time, e.g. when running "ambari-server setup".
