Configuring a file realm

You can manage and authenticate users with the built-in file internal realm. All the data about the users for the file realm is stored in the users file. The file is located in SO_PATH_CONF and are read on startup.

You need to explicitly select the file realm in the snowowl.yml configuration file in order to use it for authentication.

    - file:
        name: users

In the above configuration the file realm is using the users file to read your users from. Each row in the file represents a username and password delimited by : character. The passwords are BCrypt encrypted hashes. The default users file comes with a default snowowl user with the default snowowl password.
