JVM Enabled User
Within one and the same JVM, we support to be able to login a JCR Session programmatically without requiring a password if and only if the user to login contains:
hipposys:passkey = jvm://
By default for example the HST users are configured to be JVM enabled.
When you want to retrieve a JCR Session from a webapp other than where Hippo Repository runs in, and you don't want to configure and maintain a password in that webapp (or outside the webapp) per cluster node where the webapp runs, you can choose for a JVM enabled user. Also between DTAP environments, you don't have to worry about setting different passwords per environment.
For a user as explained in Users, add hipposys:passkey = jvm://. For example
/hippo:configuration: /hippo:users: /myWebappUser: jcr:primaryType: hipposys:user hipposys:active: true hipposys:passkey: jvm://
note that if you want to be able to login with myWebappUser into the repository servlet, you still need to configure hipposys:password. If you don't have hipposys:password configured, myWebappUser can only be used as JVM enabled user and not to login with in for example the repository servlet.
final HippoRepository repository = HippoRepositoryFactory.getHippoRepository("vm://"); JvmCredentials credentials = JvmCredentials.getCredentials("myWebappUser"); session = repository.login(credentials);
