Incorporate File based authentication in OWSM
A good article is already there from Oracle on this topic. I just want to highlight that there is a change in syntax for encoding the file in SOA 10.1.3.1 and SOA 10.1.3.3. We will be using a md5encode utility for doing text file based authentication in OWSM.
After creating Gateway and its related service in OWSM, we need to add a policy i.e. file based authentication.
Create a text file and add a user name and password in the following format:- User_name:Password
Now save the file with extension as .htpassword. Now we have to use the md5encode operation to encode the password associated with a user_name.
Syntax: SOA 10.1.3.1
>wsmadmin md5encode username password htpasswdfile
username – User name in the text file;
password – Password assigned to the user;
htpasswdfile – Name of the file containing the user name and password
Syntax: SOA 10.1.3.3
>wsmadmin md5encode htpasswdfile username
htpasswdfile – Name of the file containing the user name and password;
username – User name in the text file
