Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container

ProcedureTo Create and Assign Access Manager Roles

Using Access Manager Console, create Administrator users and Manager users as outlined in this task. For detailed information about Access Manager users and roles, see Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide.

  1. Create the following roles: an administer role named admin and a manager role named manager.

    The tasks that follow explain how to edit the appropriate web.xml files in Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container to add these role names. If the role names in Access Manager do not match role names in the respective web.xml files, the result is that access is denied to the respective Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container application.

  2. Create and assign users to the newly created roles.

    Users assigned to the admin role can log in to the administration web application and the host manager web application. Users assigned the manager role can log in to the Manager web application.
