Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 7 Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo Add a User

  1. Click the Configuration tab to see a list of users and select the configuration you need.

  2. Click the Access Control > Users tab.

  3. Click the New button.

  4. Add User Information.

    Enter the user id and password. Optionally enter the group which the user belongs to. The user ID must be unique. In case of LDAP based authentication DB, the Administration Server ensures that the user ID is unique by searching the entire directory from the search base (base DN) down to see if the user ID is in use. Be aware, however, that if you use the Directory Server ldapmodify command line utility (if available) to create a user, that it does not ensure unique user IDs.

    Note –

    Using CLI

    To create a user through CLI, execute the following command.

    wadm> create-user --user=admin --password-file=admin.pwd --host=serverhost 
    --port=8989 --config=config1 --authdb=KEYFILE1 --full-name=keyfile-config1-u1 

    See CLI Reference, create-user(1).
