Add or remove users, create and manage groups, find out what characters are supported for user IDs and passwords, and set limits on searches for users and groups.
Adding users and groups: qp85
Use your LDAP or the default file system repository to add users and create groups.
Special characters in user IDs and passwords: qp85
This topic describes the special characters that are allowed in user IDs or passwords and rules for using them.
Deleting passwords from configuration scripts: qp85
This topic provides information on removing passwords from configuration scripts after Lotus® Quickr™ has been installed and configured.
Changing passwords: qp85
IBM® Lotus Quickr for WebSphere Portal and IBM WebSphere® Application Server use some user accounts from the registry (for example, the LDAP server) for various purposes. This information includes the "Security Server ID" for the WebSphere Application Server JVM, access ID for authenticated access to databases and LDAP servers, and WebSphere Application Server and Lotus Quickr administrative ID's. Often this means that the account passwords are stored in the WebSphere Application Server and Lotus Quickr bootstraps configuration files, which allows the authentication process to work.
Setting limits on searches for users and groups: qp85
Searching for users or groups is a time consuming task. A search may time out or return more results than the system can handle or the user may expect. To prevent this behavior, you can set limits on searches for users or groups.
Removing users and groups: qp85
IBM Lotus Quickr for WebSphere Portal stores users and groups that exist in the user registry as entries in the portal database. When using the XML configuration interface or the Manage User and Groups Portlet
to delete users and groups, they are deleted from the user registry as well as from the database. Deleting a user or group directly from the configured user registry does not remove the database entry. Lotus Quickr does not remove entries from its database when users or groups are muted in the user registry, for example, users with too many wrong password attempts. You can manually remove the users and groups from the database.
