4.3 Adding a Custom User for the Correlation Engine

Sentinel recommends that you use the default Correlation Engine username of correlationengine. However, if you have installed multiple remote Correlation Engines and you want to identify them separately, you can create new users:

  1. Log in to the server as the user who has access to the installation files for Sentinel.

  2. Open the activemqgroups.properties file.

    This file is located in the /<install_dir>/etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ directory.

  3. Add the new Correlation Engine user in the admin section, separated by a comma. For example:

  4. Save and close the file.

  5. Open the activemqusers.properties file.

    This file is located in the /<install_dir>/etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ directory.

  6. Add the password for the user you created in Step 3.

    The password can be any random string. For example:

  7. Save and close the file.

  8. Restart the Sentinel server.
