14.3. Standalone Realm Properties File

Overview

The default JAAS realm used by a standalone container is implemented by the PropertiesLoginModule JAAS module. This login module stores its user data in a Java properties file in the following location:
InstallDir/etc/users.properties

Format of users.properties entries

Each entry in the etc/users.properties file has the following format (on its own line):
Username=Password[,UserGroup|Role][,UserGroup|Role]...

Changing the default username and password

The etc/users.properties file initially contains a commented out entry for a single user, admin, with password admin and role admin. It is strongly recommended that you create a new user entry that is different from the admin user example.
For example, you could create a new user in the following format:
Username=Password,Administrator
Where the Administrator role grants full administration privileges to this user.
