Accessing TDS Monitoring and Debugging Tools

Other than the compelling security reasons, you will want to enable SSL to take advantage of a couple of monitoring and debugging tools: the TDS Remote Management Tool, and the TdsMonitor Tool -- both of which (out-of-the-box) require SSL to access.

  1. Enable SSL in Tomcat
  2. If Tomcat has not already been configured to run via SSL, follow the tutorial in the previous section to Enable SSL in Tomcat.

  3. Modify ${tomcat_home}/conf/tomcat-users.xml to add the new tdsConfig and tdsMonitor roles. Add these roles to your list of roles:
  4. <tomcat-users>
        <role rolename="manager-gui"/>
        <role rolename="tdsConfig"/>
        <role rolename="tdsMonitor"/>
        <user username="admin" 
              password="e5e9fa1ba31ecd1ae84f75caaa474f3a663f05f4" 
              roles="manager-gui,tdsConfig, tdsMonitor"/>
    </tomcat-users>
    
  5. Restart Tomcat
