Enables administrators to delete a provider-config sub-element for the given message layer (message-security-config element of domain.xml, the file that specifies parameters and properties to the Application Server). The options specified in the list below apply to attributes within the message-security-config and provider-config sub-elements of the domain.xml file.
If the message-layer (message-security-config attribute) does not exist, it is created, and then the provider-config is created under it.
This command is supported in remote mode only.
If an option has a short option name, then the short option preceeds the long option name. Short options have one dash whereas long options have two dashes.
Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.
Setting to true will echo the command line statement on the standard output. Default is false.
If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.
The machine name where the domain administration server is running. The default value is localhost.
The HTTP/S port for administration. This is the port to which you should point your browser in order to manage the domain. For example, http://localhost:4848.
The default port number for Platform Edition is 4848. The default port number for Enterprise Edition is 4849.
If set to true, uses SSL/TLS to communicate with the domain administration server.
The authorized domain administration server administrative username.
If you have authenticated to a domain using the asadmin login command, then you need not specify the --user option on subsequent operations to this particular domain.
The ––passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specific format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in uppercase letters.
For example, to specify the domain administration server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, and AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD.
All remote commands must specify the admin password to authenticate to the domain administration server, either through ––passwordfile or asadmin login, or interactively on the command prompt. The asadmin login command can be used only to specify the admin password. For other passwords, that must be specified for remote commands, use the ––passwordfile or enter them at the command prompt.
If you have authenticated to a domain using the asadmin login command, then you need not specify the admin password through the ––passwordfile option on subsequent operations to this particular domain. However, this is applicable only to AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD option. You will still need to provide the other passwords, for example, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, as and when required by individual commands, such as update-file-user.
For security reasons, passwords specified as an environment variable will not be read by asadmin.
