Resuming UAA work


Dmitriy Kalinin
 

Hey all,

We have resumed BOSH & UAA integration work:
https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/1285490 to be worked on by a
single pair.

As part of this work we are going to provide two options how to configure
the Director auth:
- without UAA [default] (already exists, but we want to simplify it)
- with UAA (currently being worked on)

Currently Director only works without UAA and has its own user management
functionality. There is the users table in the DB and CLI provides
create/delete user commands. I would like to simplify this functionality as
much as possible. Users would be configured statically in the manifest for
the Director so that we can delete users table and associated commands.

Here is how the Director manifest would look like for 'Director without
UAA' configuration:

properties:
director:
users:
- {name: admin, hashed_password: $1$0497b6da$8/0owfq5zblA3o7kXQgGy} #
crypted 'password'
- {name: admin2, hashed_password: $1$0497b6da$8/0owfq5zblA3o7kXQgGy} #
crypted 'password'
...

For more complex use cases, we will encourage people to use Director auth
via UAA once that becomes available so that LDAP, password, lockout
policies, etc. can be configured.

Thoughts?
