Description Travis Rogers 2012-06-28 16:35:33 EDT
JBoss EAP 6 documentation for security realms [1] should clarify that user created properties files are not managed by the add_user script or remove references that mention a user created properties file.

List item 3 references a user supplied myfile.properties.

3. Create the references to the properties file which will store information about the new role.
Run the following command to create a pointer a file named myfile.properties, which will contain the properties pertaining to the new role.


The Result section also mentions this file.

Your new security realm is created. When you add users and roles to this new realm, the information will be stored in a separate file from the default security realms.

Comment 1 Misty Stanley-Jones 2012-07-02 22:05:25 EDT
Added the following note in the relevant step:

The newly-created properties file is not managed by the included <filename>add-user.sh</filename> and <filename>add-user.bat</filename> scripts. It must be managed externally.

Also added the following sentence at the end of the Result:

You can manage this new file using your own applications or procedures.
