    Hi,

    You may define users and Groups in users.xml at EM side.
    By default there are two users:
    1.Admin with no Password
    2.Guest with Guest password

    For syntax and other details you may refer CA APM Security Guide.

    Also remember, users and groups are case insensitive, therefore proper care should be taken if you are creating "admin" as an user.

    Hope it clarifies your question.

    Regards,
    Vaibhav

    You need to define user permission accessing the domain in domains.xml file.

    Syntax :
    <grant group="Admin" permission="full"/>
    <grant user="Guest" permission="read"/>

    Regarding Password Encryption -

    "In users.xml file :
    a. Set plaintextPasswords="true" to the users.xml file.
    Important! When you set plainTextPasswords="true", Introscope encrypts every password. Set all passwords to plain text otherwise Introscope encrypts already encrypted passwords.
    b. Set the password of every user to plain text.
    For example,
    <user password="John Jones Password" name="john"/>
    The next time the Enterprise Manager reads the users.xml file (either on start-up or when authenticating a user), it performs these actions:
    ■ Rewrites users.xml with the plain text passwords encrypted.
    ■ Resets the plainTextPasswords attribute to false."

    Vaibhav

    Did you also add the user or group to domains.xml? Please follow the instructions in the Security Guide for adding permissions in the file.

    follow these steps in order -

    1. take a back up of your users.xml file

    2. open the users.xml in any editor - test OR xml

    3.  plaintextPasswords="true" --> very important

    4. follow the security guide to create users / password ALL OF THEM AT ONCE. save and close.

    5. Recycling of MoM / Webview not necessary. If you wait few minutes, the MoM picks it up and next time you open the file, you should see the password is encrypted already.  The realty is MoM can't keep the password in text format. It will change the plaintextPasswords="false" automatically.

    The a user's password is already encrypted, live it alone.

    6. Try to logon and validate. if it does not work, that means you have screwed up somewhere. Try all over over again. Sometime the MoM double encrypts the file and you can't logon even using the existing user ids.

    I have faced all of this and succeeded.

    As Hiko said, refer Security Guide for the same.

    Regarding starting of the managed application, changes done in users.xml and domains.xml are dynamic and they get updated once you attempt for login.

    Read the chapter in the CA APM Security Guide, "Configuring CA APM users and groups in users.xml".
