D.115. tarantella webserver add_trusted_user

Adds the user name and password of a user that is to be trusted for third-party authentication.


tarantella webserver add_trusted_user username


After you enter the username, SGD prompts you to enter the password. The password must be at least six characters long.

You must restart the SGD web server, using Section D.75, “tarantella restart webserver”, to activate the new user.

You cannot use this command to change the password of a trusted user. You must delete the trusted user first, using Section D.116, “tarantella webserver delete_trusted_user”.

This command adds the user name to the “database” of Tomcat users in /opt/tarantella/webserver/tomcat/tomcat-version/conf/tomcat-users.xml and creates an SHA digest of the password. The user is also assigned the “SGDExternalAuth” role. This role is required to access the SGD external authentication web service.


The following example adds L3nNy_G0db3r as a trusted user.

# tarantella webserver add_trusted_user L3nNy_G0db3r
