Wellsfargo policy control procedure Specification of component-managed aliases on JAVA EE resources is prohibited

As part of Wellsfargo security policy usage of component managed authentication aliases prohibited. Currently IBM BPM not supported this change and requires enhancing the product.

Created PMR - TS001475871 and IBM expressed no solution for now.


Specification of component-managed aliases on JAVA EE resources is prohibited.

"Any Java EE application that runs within the cell can potentially access any Java EE resource. This is because resources have JNDI names that can be looked up by any application, and there is no authorization on resource access. Thus, if application A uses an enterprise database, simply by defining the database as a data source, it is possible that application B in the same cell can access this database.

If you choose to use this approach, you obviously will still want the appropriate applications to have access to these resources. To do this, those applications must specify local resource references in their deployment descriptors to access the resource. Those references can then be bound at deployment time to the correct resources. If the application specifies container managed authentication on the reference, then a container managed alias defined on the resource itself will be used implicitly."

1.Login to DMGR console click on Resources à Data Sources à scope to the particular Cluster and click on the Datasource.
2.Under Security settings select ‘none' for Component-managed authentication alias from drop down menu.
3.Save, sync and restart the nodes and related JVMs.
