Modifying security model settings after installation

This section explains how to modify IBM® Rational® Test Control Panel security model settings after installation.

About this task

Before installing Rational® Test Control Panel, it is a good idea to consider whether and how users will be authenticated during login (for information about this, refer to Installation considerations for Rational Test Control Panel).

However, before and during installation of the Rational® Test Control Panel, you might be unsure of security model requirements, or you might have insufficient information to enable you to configure (fully) your chosen security model option.

After installation, Rational® Test Control Panel provides administrators with the means to modify security settings without having to reinstall the software.

To modify security model settings after installation:


  1. Open IBM® Installation Manager and click Modify.
  2. Select Rational® Test Control Panel package from the list to modify the package and click Next.
  3. In the Security Configuration page, select the required authentication mode from the Authentication Type list and click Next.
  4. Click Modify and then click Finish.
  5. Restart Rational® Test Control Panel service to ensure that any changes you have made take effect.


The selected type of authentication mode is applied for the users to log in to the Rational® Test Control Panel.
