Managing Password in JBOSS EAP

1. Navigate to …\jboss-eap-5.1\jboss-as\server\server1\conf\props .

2.  Open the jmx-console-roles.properties file and add roles as required.  I added the role saky , which I use to  login to jmx-console. Refer the sample file

# A sample roles.properties file for use with the UsersRolesLoginModule

admin=JBossAdmin,HttpInvoker
saky=JBossAdmin,HttpInvoker

3. Similarly, Open the jmx-console-users.properties file and edit passwords for the users. 

# A sample users.properties file for use with the UsersRolesLoginModule
admin=admin
saky=saky

Important: jmx-console is mapped in login-config.xml  ( …\jboss-eap-5.1\jboss-as\server\server1\conf\ ).

<application-policy name=”jmx-console”>
<authentication>
<login-module code=”org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule”
flag=”required”>
<module-option name=”usersProperties”>props/jmx-console-users.properties</module-option>
<module-option name=”rolesProperties”>props/jmx-console-roles.properties</module-option>
</login-module>
</authentication>
</application-policy>

Note: Restart the server if any changes are made in any of these configuration settings
