Create a User Account and Authentication (UAA) Client

Extra configuration is required when defining users that have specific security roles with an external authentication such as LDAP via User Account and Authentication (UAA).

Authenticating using an external authentication such as LDAP via UAA uses the UAA server. Access the UAA server through its command-line interface, UAAC.

When enabling the use of an external authentication such as LDAP via UAA during VMware Tanzu GemFire for VMs tile configuration, you will specify a UAA client, as described in Security. This procedure creates that UAA client.

Create a UAA client for use in tile configuration with the command:

uaac client add cloudcache_gfsh --scope="PCC_*" --secret="THE-SECRET"
   --authorized_grant_types=password

Replace THE-SECRET with your chosen password (secret) for this UAA client. The remainder of the command is exactly as shown. The UAA client name is cloudcache_gfsh.
