Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-1883) AuthInitializer should be made optional
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2016 17:00:00 GMT


Karen Smoler Miller commented on GEODE-1883:

There should be an update in the newly-added documentation about the client setting of the
properties. I will do this in the {{release/1.0.0-incubating}} branch, so it goes into the
next Geode release candidate.

> {{AuthInitializer}} is the interface that a client must implement that provides credentials
that are verified by the server. The same interface is also used for peer authentication.

> In order to configure {{AuthInitialize}} any Geode property starting with {{security-}}
is passed through to the {{AuthInitialize.getCredentials}} method.
> For simple authentication where only a username and a password are required, users should
not really be required to implement the AuthInitialize interface in the presence of property
> Geode should detect {{security-username}} and {{security-password}} properties in
OR file and use those for authentication.
