A.3 iManager Authorized Users and Groups

Authorized Users and Groups are those that iManager permits to perform its various administrative tasks. For more information about specifying and configuring Authorized Users and Groups, see Authorized Users and Groups.

Authorized Users and Groups data is stored in the configiman.properties file, which must be secured to prevent unauthorized modification. To do this, modify the access controls for configman.properties to restrict those users authorized to manually edit the file.

NOTE:Not specifying an Authorized User or Group, which prevents the configiman.properties file from being created, or specifying an Authorized User or Group of AllUsers, allows any user to install iManager plug-ins and modify iManager server settings. This is a security risk for server-based iManager environments.
