Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the adminstrative console.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Autocomplete is enabled for console     *
    *                      logon panel.                            *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If users select to autocomplete passwords from their browser,
    the browser will save administrative console login and
    password.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There is a new custom property to set in the deployment
    manager or standalone server that will disable the
    autocomplete for the administrative console.
    adminconsole.password.autocompleteoff   true
    The server must be restarted after the change has been saved.
    
    For some browsers, if the logon/password has already been
    saved, it must be deleted before the fix will work.
    
    The fix for this APAR is
    currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.6, 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to
