Configuring user access
By default, access control is disabled. Any user that knows the OpsCenter URL can view
all objects and perform all tasks. To control access, you configure authentication for OpsCenter
users by performing these tasks:
OpsCenter uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the communication protocol and
authenticate traffic between DataStax agents and the main OpsCenter daemon.
You can enable or disable Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) support in
Using custom start/stop scripts for DataStax Enterprise and Cassandra
OpsCenter allows users to start and stop the DataStax Enterprise/Cassandra process on
each node in a visual way. The agent will attempt to automatically determine the best way to
do this, but cannot not do so in all cases. You can customize the startup or shutdown of a
node using the start-cassandra and stop-cassandra
scripts located in
/usr/share/datastax-agent/bin (package installs) or
<install_location>/bin (tarball installs).
