Dynamic changes to security
Some specific information on how dynamic configuration changes affect security on Liberty is introduced in this topic.
Dynamically changing the user registry
Changing the user registry can affect both the server configuration and clients using the server. Before you change the user registry dynamically (without restarting the server), consider the following:
- If you change the user registry type or realm name, all web clients must clear their single sign-on tokens.
- If you change the user registry type or realm name, any values of accessId
that are specified in the authorization bindings must be updated. The accessId
takes the form of
group:realmName/uniqueId. The realmName in the accessId must match the realmName for the configuration user registry.
