Create a UAA Client

Warning: Pivotal Cloud Cache v1.7 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

Extra configuration is required when defining users that have specific security roles with an authentication and enterprise single sign-on (SSO) such as LDAP.

Authenticating using an authentication and enterprise SSO system such as LDAP uses the User Account and Authentication (UAA) server. Access the UAA server through its command-line interface, UAAC.

When enabling the use of an authentication and enterprise single sign-on (SSO) such as LDAP during PCC 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.
