derby.user.UserName

Function

Has two uses:

Users and Passwords

This property creates valid clear-text users and passwords within Derby when the derby.authentication.provider property is set to BUILTIN. For information about users, see "Working with User Authentication" in the Java DB Developer's Guide.
  • Database-Level Properties

    When you create users with database-level properties, those users are available to the specified database only.

    You set the property once for each user. To delete a user, set that user's password to null.

  • System-Level Properties

    When you create users with system-level users, those users are available to all databases in the system.

    You set the value of this system-wide property once for each user, so you can set it several times. To delete a user, remove that user from the file.

    You can define this property in the usual ways-typically in the derby.properties file.

When a user name and its corresponding password are provided in the DriverManager.getConnection call, Derby validates them against the properties defined for the current system.

User names are SQL92Identifiers and can be delimited.

Syntax

derby.user.{UserName=Password} | UserName=userDN }
-- database-level property
CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY(
    'derby.user.UserName',
    'Password | userDN')

Default

None.

Example

-- system-level property
derby.user.guest=java5w

derby.user."!Amber"=java5w
-- database-level property
CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY(
    'derby.user.sa',
    'Derby3x9')
-- cache a userDN locally, database-level property
CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY(
    'derby.user.richard',
    'uid=richard, ou=People, o=ExampleSite.com')
