|Configuring Authentication and Authorization / Configuring User Authentication|
The GemFire XD BUILTIN authentication provider is suitable for development and testing only. When using this security mechanism, the GemFire XD system maintains the repository of username and password information.
You create user names and passwords for system users by specifying them with the gemfirexd.user.<UserName>=<password> property in the gemfirexd.properties file. See Create and View System Users.
