Installing and Using the CredentialsCheck Table Component

Previous Next

Before you can add authentication rules for users, you must set the 'Validation Agent' of the users to 'External Service' and use the CredentialsCheck table component.

The PWDCredentials table component is available in the Definer as an 'Off the Shelf Component'. For more information about Table Components and J2EE Components, see your Definer documentation.

To import the CREDENTIALSCHECK table component:

1.In the Definer, choose View, Objects, Off the Shelf Components from the menu bar.
2.Execute a query to retrieve the CREDENTIALSCHECK component.

The Off the Shelf Components window shows the name of the Java package that the component's class belongs to, the Java Archive file that contains the component's class definition, and the component name.


3.Press the Import button and commit to save the imported records. You should see a new table and a J2EE Component, both of which are called 'CREDENTIALSCHECK'.

NOTE: Only commit the import if you are sure that you want the component in your repository, otherwise perform a rollback. To preview the results of an import, use "Store Record" from the Record menu instead of commit for each component marked for import.
