Change the UCMDB Integration User Credentials

Note This section is relevant only for the UCMDB Browser standalone.

The UCMDB Browser connects to the UCMDB server through the API using the UCMDB UI integration user credentials. If you changed the UCMDB integration user credentials from the initial default settings, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a credentials.txt tile and put it in the same directory as the ucmdb_browser_config.xml file.
  2. In the file credentials.txt, enter the following content:

    • user=<user-name>
    • password=<user-password>

    Where user-name is the integration user's user name and user-password is the integration user's password.

    • The integration user's name and password can contain Unicode characters \uFFFF, where F can be replaced with the following characters: a-f, A-F, 0-9.
    • If the integration user's name or the integration user's password contains the \ (backslash) character, then in the credential.txt file, you must use \\ instead of \.

      For example, if the integration user's name is admin, and the integration user's password is admin12\3, in the credentials.txt file enter the following content:



  3. Restart the Tomcat server.

    Caution For multiple UCMDB configurations (as described in Configure Multiple UCMDB Servers, the same integration user should be defined on all UCMDB servers.

    Note After restarting the Tomcat server and then logging in to the UCMDB Browser, a new encrypted file credentials.bin is created and the file credentials.txt is removed.
