Chapter 2. Configuring basic authentication
Insights client configuration is managed in
/etc/insights-client/insights-client.conf. This file provides a configuration template for setting up basic authentication. The default configuration for certificate-based authentication is as follows:
auto_config=TRUE authmethod=BASIC username=<your customer portal username> password=<your customer portal password>
- You have a Red Hat SSO username and SSO password that can be stored in clear text.
You have read/write permissions in the directory
insights-clientpackage is installed on your system.
Use a text editor to open the file
<your customer portal username>with a Red Hat SSO username.
<your customer portal password>with a Red Hat SSO password.
- Save the configuration and exit the editor.
Register the system.
# insights-client --register
