Cannot access Wildfly Management Console (http://localhost:9990/console) as no user have been added to the system.  A message displayed -

"You have not yet added any users to be able to access the admin console. You can add a new user by executing the add-user.bat script within the bin folder of your EAP 6 installation."



This issue occurs if no users have been added to the Wildfly Management Console.


OS - Windows 


1) Check and see if you have JBOSS_HOME and JAVA_HOME as Environment variables. To do this open "Advanced system settings" on windows. Click on the advanced tab. On the bottom click "Environment Variables"

2) A new window will open and under System Variables click "New". A window will open enter "JAVA_HOME" and the location of the jdk.
