Where to configure authentication

Authentication must be configured for each WebSphere Application Server Liberty Base profile, following these rules:
To authenticate command-line users
For users of the command-line, the command-line client, and the command-line as clients connected to the master domain manager using HTTP or HTTPS, the same authentication method must be configured for the following components:
  • Master domain manager
  • Backup master domain manager
To authenticate Z connector users
The Z connector is always installed on the same instance as the Dynamic Workload Console. You do not need to separately configure authentication for it.
To authenticate dynamic domain manager users
The same authentication method must be configured for each dynamic domain manager and its corresponding backup dynamic domain manager. This authentication method does not need to be the same as that used for the master domain manager.
