Opal HowTo Manage Users

Tags: Opal DataShield HowTo User Management


Opal users and passwords are stored in a file within the OPAL_HOME/conf directory. However, I have been told that it is also possible for users to authenticate using a certificate. However, this may not work when Opal is accessed through a Pound reverse proxy.


  1. Go to directory /local/opal-server{version}/tools/ and run the command ./shiro-hasher -p
  2. Enter your password and copy the has string that is displayed by the tool.
  3. Edit the file /local/opal_home/conf/shiro.ini
  4. In the section for usernames create a line for the new user in the format:
        {username}={password hash from above},{role}
