Hi Anthony,

The management of passwords is controlled via the WebContainer that you
have the Jazz WAR deployed in. If you are running the WAR out of the
Server zip file then, by default, the authentication manager will be
Tomcats xml file user database. You can add users/edit passwords by
editing the conf/tomcat-users.xml file. Here is a example :

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<tomcat-users>
...
<user username="newuser" password="newpassword" roles="jazzusers"/>
</tomcat-users>

If you are deploying to another type of WebContainer or have a different
type of Realm configured for Tomcat then setting passwords will be
dependent on th authentication database configured
