Disabling User Authentication for Operator views in Netcool Impact 7.1

Comment out the security constraint content in the web.xml file

at e.g (depending on your install)

/opt/IBM/tivoli/impact/wlp/usr/servers/ImpactUI/apps/ImpactUI.ear/opview.war/WEB-INF

 

</welcome-file-list>
<!--
    <security-constraint>
        <web-resource-collection>
            <web-resource-name>Impact Protected Area</web-resource-name>
            <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
            <http-method>GET</http-method>
            <http-method>POST</http-method>
        </web-resource-collection>
        <auth-constraint>
            <role-name>impactAdminUser</role-name>
            <role-name>impactFullAccessUser</role-name>
            <role-name>impactOpViewUser</role-name>
        </auth-constraint>
    </security-constraint>  -->


    <login-config>

 

A restart is NOT required for the changes to take effect.

To test, paste the operator view index page URL into your browser

e.g    https://X.XX.XXX.XX:16311/opview/index

This will bring up the index page for all of your operator views.

The user will not be asked for authentication.
