|Configuring User Authentication / Creating Users for BUILTIN Authentication|
Create user accounts to protect database resources.
To define distributed system users, you must first connect to a GemFire XD system and then execute a system procedure to create a user account.
gfxd connect peer 'locators=localhost:10334;mcast-port=0;user=SB;auth-provider=BUILTIN;gemfirexd.user.SB=PSB;password=PSB'; call sys.create_user('gemfirexd.user.newuser', 'newpassword'); disconnect;After creating one or more distributed system user accounts, you can use those credentials, instead of a system user credential, to connect to GemFire XD:
gfxd connect client 'localhost:10334;user=newuser;password=newpassword';
Use distributed system user accounts with the GRANT and REVOKE statements to manage access to database resources. See Configuring User Authorization.
