Where to Place Security Settings

Where to Place Security Settings

Restrict access to security configuration data by placing related properties (beginning with security-*) in a separate file.

You can move security settings that are normally configured in to a separate file. This way, you can still allow read or write access for your file.

Upon startup, GemFire processes will look for the file in the following locations in order:
  • current working directory
  • user's home directory
  • classpath

If any password-related security properties are listed in the file but have a blank value, the process will prompt the user to enter a password upon startup.
