Question:

How to import users and groups into CAWA DE server?

Answer:

Users and Groups importing is disabled by the product design to avoid security inconsistency.

However, these artifacts can be loaded into DE server as described below:

On DE targeted server:

  • Make a backup of the 'DBInit' folder. This folder is located in <installdir>/Resources/DBInit.
  • Remove all folders in the 'DBInit' except the 'Config'.
  • Create two new folders: 'User' and 'Group'.
  • Put exported user and group files into the new folders User and Group respectively.
  • Ensure you rename all of the exported files with the .xml extension.
  • To ensure that the 'DBInit' folder is read by DE server during the startup, create an empty file and name it 'populate' - place this file in the 'DBInit' folder.

Restart targeted DE Server

  • Restart DE server and check the tracelog file to ensure that the log recorded the "populate" messages.
  • Log on and check the Admin/Security perspective - the users and the groups should be shown.
