Security domains in WebSphere - Getting Started

By default, components in a WebSphere cell, such as applications, application servers, and users, will use global security. A security domain will override or take precedence over global security. Security domains are used to create a unique set of security settings for a cell, node, cluster, or application server, so that different cell, node, cluster, or application server can have their own, unqiue security settings. 

At a high level, these are the common steps to set up a new security domain.

  1. Create a new security domain
  2. Apply attributes to the security domain
  3. Assign the security domain to a cell, node, cluster, or application server
