Configuring WebSphere to authenticate the local OS or domain user

Configuring WebSphere to authenticate the local OS or domain user

About this task

If after installing the Dynamic Workload Console and enabling the Local OS security, you can not create an engine connection or if the configured task list is no longer displayed, perform the following steps:


  1. Stop the Dynamic Workload Console
  2. Open the file in: <JAZZSM_HOME/profile/config/cells/JazzSMNode01Cell/wim/config/wimconfig.xml
  3. At the end of the list of configuration properties:
    <config:repositories adapterClassName="com.ibm.ws.wim.adapter.urbridge.URBridge"
      id="twaLocalOS" supportPaging="false"> 
    	<config:baseEntries name="o=twaLocalOS"/> 
    	<config:CustomProperties name="uniqueUserIdProperty" value="uniqueId"/> 
    	<config:CustomProperties name="userSecurityNameProperty" value="uniqueName"/>
    	<config:CustomProperties name="userDisplayNameproperty" value="displayName"/>
    	<config:CustomProperties name="uniqueGroupIdProperty" value="uniqueId"/>
    	<config:CustomProperties name="groupDisplayNameProperty" value="displayName"/>
    	<config:CustomProperties name="groupSecurityNameProperty" value="uniqueName"/>
    add the following rows:
    <config:CustomProperties name="com.ibm.websphere.registry.UseRegistry" value="local"/>
    for Domain User:
    <config:CustomProperties name="com.ibm.websphere.registry.UseRegistry" value="domain"/>
    If setting local, WebSphere will authenticate OS local user only. If setting domain, WebSphere will only authenticate the domain account from the Domain Controller.
  4. Restart the Dynamic Workload Console and either the list of configured tasks or the created engine connection is displayed. If it is needed to authenticate both users, perform the following steps:
    1. Open the file <JAZZSM_HOME/profile/config/cells/JazzSMNode01Cell/wim/config/wimconfig.xml
    2. set the following property: <config:CustomProperties name="localAndDomainRegistryReturnPrincipalNameAsUserId" value="userId"/>
