Issue/Introduction

We have created an account by adding a new line to the users.xml file. however, when trying to log in via the URL, it is not working.

The users.xmll file looks as below:


slqsdc-vapmweb:/opt/CommandCenterServer/config # more users.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!--
Attention!
This file is used for the User Management.
Supported operations on users:
    updating user values e.g. password can be changed by modifying the value of the password attribute
    inserting users by adding new entries
    deleting users by removing existing entries

For security reasons, all passwords are removed from this file a few seconds after the user updates are saved.
-->
<apm-acc-users>
 <!-- Default user -->
 <user email="[email protected]" firstname="User" lastname="Demo" password=""/>
#<apm-acc-users>
# <!-- Liquigas user -->
# <user email="[email protected]" firstname="First" lastname="Admin" password="abc123"/>
 <user email="[email protected]" firstname="Abc" lastname="xyz" password=""/>
<apm-acc-users>


The account is "[email protected]" without password.

When we try to login, we get a problem. The URL print this message :

" Email or password invalid or user unknown."  and the certified notes :

Conection is not secure ...

https://<IP/Hostname>:8443/login

Environment

Release : 10.7.0

Component : APM ACC

Resolution

The problem is fixed after revision of the users.xml.
We believe it had some character that was causing the failure.
After cleaning the content and rewriting, it worked.
We suggest to restore the original users.xml and modify again.

The working users.xml looks as blow:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>

<user email="[email protected]" firstname="Abc" lastname="xyz" password=""/>
</apm-acc-users>
