    Creating an IDP Reporter User

    You can access IDP Reporter with the same credentials you use to access ACM. Alternatively, to distribute access to IDP Reporter only, you can create users with permission to access IDP Reporter only.

    To create an IDP Reporter user:

    1. Log into the CLI as admin and enter su - to switch to root.
    2. Run the following command to create a user named reports:

      [root@defaulthost conf]# useradd reports
    3. Run the following command to change the password for the user named reports:

      [root@defaulthost conf]# passwd reports
    4. Edit the /etc/httpd/conf/idphttp.conf file to give the user named reports access to the /reports directory. Add the following line under <Location /reports>:

      require user root reports

      For example:

      [root@defaulthost conf]# vi idphttpd.conf
      SetEnv PATH_TRANSLATED "/usr/idp/reporter/\1\2"
      SetEnv FWA_TEMPDIR "/usr/idp/reporter/temp/"
       <Location> /reports>
                   require user root reports
      SetHandler perl-script         
                   PerlHandler WebConf::LaunchReports 
      </Location>
    5. Restart the httpd process by entering the following command:

      service httpd restart
