Subject Name for administrative security realm
Date Mon, 20 Nov 2006 15:50:36 GMT
How about the name "geronimo-admin-realm" for administrative security
realm?  If there are no objections to this, I will apply the patch in 48

Subject: [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-931) Rename administrative security realm

     [ ]

Vamsavardhana Reddy updated GERONIMO-931:

    Attachment: GERONIMO-931.patch

GERONIMO-931.patch:  Renames administrative security realm to "admin-realm".

After building branches\1.2 with the patch applied, I have done the
following verification:

1.  Login to admin console successfully
2.  Add a new user using Console Realm portlet and add this user to "admin"
3.  Deploy an application using command line deploy tool using the newly
added user credentials
3.  Redeploy the application using credentials system/manager

> It would be best if the administrative security realm (and login domain)
was named "AdminRealm" or something so it would be more convenient to
replace it.  Currently it's called "properties-login" and
"geronimo-properties-realm" and so on.  Which makes it pretty awkward to
replace it with a database-based realm, for example.
> This change needs to propogate to web apps including the console.  I'm not
sure how the remote JMX access handles authentication (as in, for the deploy
tool), but presumably that would also need to be switched.
