The Parasoft User Administration module (pstsec) provides authentication and authorization for CTP users. You only need to install User Administration if both of the following conditions apply:

  • User-based access controls are required in this CTP installation and associated SOAtest/Virtualize servers, and
  • Parasoft DTP will not be deployed within the organization

Installing Parasoft User Administration

To install Parasoft User Administration:

  1. Copy pstsec.war from the extracted CTP zip file to the <TOMCAT>/webapps folder.
  2. Open CTP in a browser.
  3. Choose Security Configuration from the CTP settings menu (gear icon).
  4. Specify the host and port of the DTP or standalone PSTSec server you use for user authentication the Security service URL field.
  5. Specify the user name and password of a user with administrator access in the Username and Password fields. We recommend using a the built-in admin account, as opposed to an individual user's personal account.
  6. If you want guests who have not logged in to CTP to have read-only access, enable the Allow anonymous access option.
  7. Click the Save button at the top of the page.
  8. Click the Browse User Administration on <USER ADMIN HOST> link.

  9. Add new users/groups and grant permissions for access roles as described in Defining Users and Permissions. In summary, when configuring permissions, use the following options:






administration, provision, or system

  • administration: Provides access to all resources and the ability to grant permissions.
  • provision: Provides read-only access to all resources and the ability to provision select environments and deploy assets to Virtualize servers.
  • system: Provides permission to create, modify, provision, and delete select resources; also provides read-only access to all other resources.
  • No labels
