UAA UAA (User Account and Authentication) is used as the identity management service for Cloud Foundry.

Contents

UAAC CLI

Installing Ruby on Mac OSX

Use Homebrew

~$ brew install rbenv
~$ eval "$(rbenv init -)"
~$ rbenv install 2.5.1

Install UAAC CLI

~$ sudo gem install cf-uaac 

Connecting to UAA server

use the uaac target uaa.<system domain> command to target the UAA server.

ie. ~$ uaac target uaa.run-16.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io


next, we need to authenticate and obtain an access token. Record the uaa:admin:client_secret from your deployment manifest (stored in ~/.uaac.yml

OR, if you are using a vcenter deployment, obtain it by:

OPs Manager > PAS > Credentials > UAA > Admin Client Credentials

With that information, we can use

~$ uaac token client get admin -s ADMIN-CLIENT-SECRET


If the above doesn't work, try decrypting the installation yml file. SSH into the ops manager and then run these with the admin passcode:

~$ sudo -u tempest-web RAILS_ENV=production /home/tempest-web/tempest/web/scripts/decrypt /var/tempest/workspaces/default/actual-installation.yml /tmp/actual-installation.yml
~$ sudo -u tempest-web RAILS_ENV=production /home/tempest-web/tempest/web/scripts/decrypt /var/tempest/workspaces/default/installation.yml /tmp/installation.yml

You will then have a decrypted copy of the installation yml file and you can search for the uaa admin secret.

~$ cat /tmp/actual-installation.yml | grep -A 4 uaa_admin_credentials

Creating admin user

To create an admin user that can be used in CF, follow these steps:

Obtain an access token for the UAA server with admin credentials.
~$ uaac user add admin2 -p password --emails [email protected]
~$ uaac member add cloud_controller.admin admin2
~$ uaac member add uaa.admin admin2
~$ uaac member add scim.read admin2
~$ uaac member add scim.write admin2

You can verify the user exists by using uaac users. They should be listed there along with their assigned permissions.

Now you should be able to log in with the user using CF CLI

Quick Reference

uaac permissions/scopes

https://docs.cloudfoundry.org/concepts/architecture/uaa.html#uaa-scopes

uaac contexts

Displays the users and applications authorized by the UAA server, along with the permissions granted, within the current scope.

~$ uaac contexts

uaac users

Displays all UAA user accounts and their respective permissions.
However, if you want a readable output or to search for users, you can use some options like these:

show users by email address

~$ uaac users --attributes emails

locate specific user based on username

~$ uaac users "username eq 'username'"

Common UAA Instances

Below are some common instances of UAA as it pertains to Cloud Foundry installations.

Operations Manager (Ops Man)

The UAA api target for Ops Man should be:

https://{ops-manager-fqdn}/uaa
ie. https://opsmgr-10.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io/uaa

This api target provides access to:

  • the Ops Man API token, users, and scopes

Authenticating with UAA for ops man api

reference

~$ uaac target opsmgr-10.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io/uaa
~$ uaac target owner get
Client ID: opsman
Client secret:
User name: admin
Password: {password from BOSH deployment manifest}

Pivotal Application Service (PAS)

The UAA api target for PAS should be:

https://uaa.{system_domain}
ie. https://uaa.run-10.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io

This api target provides access to:

  • the CF API token, users, and scopes
  • creating users and scopes for apps manager

Authenticating with UAA for cf api

~$ uaac target uaa.run-10.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io
~$ uaac token owner get
Client ID: cf
Client secret:
User name: admin
Password: {password from PAS > UAA > Admin}

Authenticating with UAA for uaa api

reference

~$ uaac target uaa.run-10.haas-59.pez.pivotal.io
~$ uaac token client get admin -s {password from PAS > UAA > Admin Client Credentials}
