IBM WebSphere - Getting Started with Global Security

Updated:   |  IBM WebSphere articles

Global Security is a collection of security controls. You can view and edit global security in the WebSphere web console at Security > Global security. At a high level, the following features can be controlled in Global Security.


wsadmin can be used to determine if Global Security is enabled. You may want to use -conntype NONE when performing this task. Here is an example using the jython scripting language.

~]$ ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/bin/ -lang jython -c "print AdminTask.isGlobalSecurityEnabled()"


wsadmin can be used to enable (true) or disable (false) Global Security. After changing Global Security, you would need to restart the deployment manager for this change to take effect.

~]$ ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/bin/ -lang jython -c "print AdminTask.setGlobalSecurity ('[-enabled false]')"
