Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1471896
JON 3.3 rhqadmin password incorrect
Last modified: 2017-07-20 22:11:17 EDT
Title: Configuring PostgreSQL
Describe the issue:
The password for rhqadmin is not 'password'. It should be 'rhqadmin' as mentioned in JON 3.1 document.
Create a PostgreSQL role named rhqadmin with a password 'password'.
Suggestions for improvement:
Create a PostgreSQL role named rhqadmin with a password 'rhqadmin'.
2.1.2. Configuring PostgreSQL point no. 5
When updating this section of the Installation Guide recently, we determined that suggesting the rhqadmin password as 'rhqadmin' may present a security risk.
Any password can be used for the database user, provided that the 'rhq-server.properties' file is updated, as indicated at the start of section 3.6 of the Installation Guide.
However, thanks to your feedback, we see that clarification is needed and I will add a note indicating that the default postgresql password used by rhqctl is 'rhqadmin'.
The Configuring PostgreSQL section of the Installation Guide has now been updated:
Thank you again for the feedback.
Please let me know whether or not you are satisfied with the correction sometime next week so I can close the bugzilla case, otherwise the bugzilla case will be closed this time next week.
