Doc Text:
When using a load balancing Apache server in front of JBoss EAP 5.x, you can set the "requiredSecret" attribute of the AJP connector. This is used to only allow requests from load-balancer workers with the same secret keyword, to be accepted. In JBoss EAP 6.0.x and 6.1.x it was not possible to configure this value. This issue has now resolved and you can now set a system property to your required value for the "requiredSecret" attribute: ---- org.apache.coyote.ajp.DEFAULT_REQUIRED_SECRET=yoursecretvalue ----

Description Tom Fonteyne 2013-08-14 09:23:19 EDT
In JBoss 5 I could set the requiredSecret attribute of the AJP connector. This is no longer possible in JBoss EAP 6.0.0/6.0.1/6.1.0/6.1.1

This is a backport of https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WFLY-1589
to get the functionality in the EAP 6.2.0 release
