How hard is it to migrate from Tomcat user directory


Christopher Smith (1815) | asked Oct 13 '14, 4:22 p.m.
 I'm about to move from evaluating  to implementing RTC.

I want to use a company user directory but it seems that it will not be set up for at least a month.

Will initially using the Tomcat user directory and then migrating to a company user directory give me more grief than waiting for the (uncertain) company user directory.

 We originally had Tomcat and moved to LDAP.    The transition wasn't bad (as long as you know the LDAP parameters).   The other key thing is that the user names in Tomcat need to match what they would in LDAP.

You can also potentially change the ID's, if you need to . See https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/10/12/changing-the-jazz-user-id-using-the-rtc-plain-java-client-libraries/ for some hints how to do it. Please note, I would try this with a test system before doing it in production.
