There are two accounts that are used to configure and access the MySQL database used by the API Gateway application:
- Privileged user (root)
- Unprivileged user (gateway)
These accounts provide the Gateway appliance with a method of configuring a Gateway database as well as providing jailed and restricted access through a privileged and unprivileged user account. The default accounts are root and gateway, respectively, but can be reconfigured by a system administrator.
