TOTD #159: How to add login/password to Admin Console in GlassFish 3.x ?
By arungupta on Apr 08, 2011
The default behavior of Admin Console in GlassFish 3.1 is to not ask for a login/password. This was done as a convenience to developers with the expectation that production installs will secure the admin user. You can secure it again by going to (in the admin console):
Configurations -> server-config -> Security -> Realms -> admin-realm -> Manage Users
You can either give 'admin' a password, or add another user. Read more on users@glassfish.
