Pinned topic How can we show this username/password to the user in SCAS post deployment

‏2013-03-04T13:29:28Z |
I am deploying the virtual application instance for database successfully and I have written a script randomly generated password for one username to access this database.
I need to send this randomly generated password to users so that they can access the database.
How can we show this username/password to the user in SCAS post deployment once the instance is deployed.
Any pointer to this will be appreciated.

    It not so secure to show password on the portal usually we prefer to send emails containing the credentional.

    To send an email you will need an SMTP server, so you have either to capture it from your pattern-type or create a shared service which provide a 'sendEmail' RESTFul API service and send the email using a 'post provisioner' OSGI component.

    FYI: we can also show some information on the console using the 'external-url' element in the topology:
