6.1. Enabling Security

By default, security is enabled for the entire installation.

Security can be enabled/disabled by adding the disable-security-controls option to the configuration.

If this property is not supplied, or set to false, then security will be enabled. If set to true, then security will be disabled.

Enabling security through this single option, has the same effect as adding:


If you are enabling to-the-database encryption, you must ensure this has been enabled in your database and the relevant certificates are available first. See Section 6.8, “Enabling Database SSL” for steps.


Installing from a staging host will automatically generate certificates and configuration for a secured installation. No further changes or actions are required.

For INI-based installations, there are additional steps required to copy the needed certificate files to all of the nodes. Please see Section 6.1.2, “Enabling Security using the INI Method” for details.
