Introduction:
My ACC is missing an example ACA URL however to enable user authentication I need to generate a security token + configure ACA URL.
Question:
# Location of ACA component containing users, groups, roles, authentication and authorization logic
# If it's not set then all ACC users have full permissions

authentication.aca.url=

Is there any example of ACA URL?
Also, please explain steps to enable overall granular ACC security.



 
Environment:
APM 10.7
Answer:
The ACA URL is basically the Team Center URL with the correct port (webserver port configured in EM properties "introscope.enterprisemanager.webserver.port"):
Below you can find an ACA url example:

# Location of ACA component containing users, groups, roles, authentication and authorization logic
# If it's not set then all ACC users have full permissions

authentication.aca.url=http://MaTes1-win03:8081

# ATC System token used to call ACA REST endpoints. It must be issued by user with Admin privileges
# you can paste the value as is here, it will be encrypted on next ACC restart

authentication.aca.systemToken=ENC(3a.k8WnAHi8oVli4aW7uJezMQ==.OSDT0GwqZ05yL2jzehUAv3uaNrwawJPc1OyHsh1CT0EAoQdaKLU6ogBWanhoz1aj)

There are 3 methods for authentication. By using users.xml (default), User manager connection and using SAML to authenticate users with LDAP or EEM.
Please refer to the following links for further details about these methods and roles/permissions:
