Grant access to OSGi-console to other users

Posted by Feike Visser

I recently got the question how can you add other users to access the OSGi console, so that you don't need to use always the admin-account.

This is a valid question when you don't want to expose the admin-account/password to a lot of people.

Steps how to do it

Go to this configuration in the OSGi-console "Apache Sling Web Console Security Provider"


In this configuration you can add users or add groups that have access to the OSGi-console.

As explained in my previous post it is better to have configuration nodes than making changes manually.
