Issue/Introduction



Is there way to create a second ssgconfig account? We want the original ssgconfig to be held by one team and the second one to be used by another team, independent of the first team. We would also like to know the feasibility of customizing the privilege of the second ssgconfig account. For example, skipping the menu displayed upon login and only be given a shell instead

Environment

CA API Gateway 9.x

Resolution

Unfortunately, it is not possible to create a second ssgconfig account. What you can do is to create any user, and use the 'su' command to become ssgconfig. However, in that case it also mean that you cannot modify or customize the privilege of this user in terms of ssgconfig's privilege.
