Default Authentication Method in Ephesoft Transact

This article explains the default authentication method in Transact. This is the most basic method of verifying and validating users, which is done via the .xml file tomcat-users.xml.

How does default authentication work?

Tomcat maintains a list of users and roles in the tomcat-users.xml file. You can define roles and users, and assigns users with specific roles.

Once Tomcat is started, the server.xml file references the tomcat-users.xml file in the following resource:

It stores users, roles, and user-role mappings in the memory. These memory locations are referenced when the user sends a request to authenticate users.

Restart Transact

You will need to restart the Transact server or Tomcat instance when a new entry is created in this file, so that it can load the new data into the memory.
