Granting Programmatic Login Permission

The ProgrammaticLoginPermission permission is required to invoke the programmatic login mechanism for an application if the security manager is enabled. For information about the security manager, see The server.policy File. This permission is not granted by default to deployed applications because this is not a standard Java EE mechanism.

To grant the required permission to the application, add the following to the domain-dir/config/server.policy file:

grant codeBase "file:jar-file-path" {

The jar-file-path is the path to the application’s JAR file.
