Excerpt

The JOC Cockpit brings user authentication and authorization to the JobScheduler.

Authentication can either take place against an Apache ShiroTM compliant configuration, an LDAP compliant directory service or information stored in a database. Authentication against multiple realms is possible.

Authorization is defined in Roles and Permissions and an example set of Roles and Permissions is provided with the JOC Cockpit installation. System administrators are able to define their own User Roles and Permission sets as required.

The JOC Cockpit is able to handle authentication of multiple users and their authorization for multiple JobSchedulers simultaneously. It also includes an editor in the Manage Accounts view for the configuration of authentication and authorization.

...

The Authentication and Authorization provided by the JOC Cockpit is provided independently of any JobScheduler instances and this functional independence allows, for example, scalability (see the JOC Cockpit Clusters section below) as well as enabling individual JobScheduler Masters and/or Agents to be used for individual clients. A more detailed description of the JobScheduler / JOC Cockpit architecture is provided in the JOC Cockpit - Architecture article.
