Configuration Elements

Element Description Type Required Default Version
database Network path to the Synergy database instance String No None 1.0
password The Synergy password for the associate Username" value.
Support environment variable expansion.
String No None 1.0
role The role to use for the Synergy session.
If Username is specified to allow anonymous access to ChangeSynergy, you should specify a role with minimum read-only permissions.
String No User 1.0
url The root path to the ChangeSynergy installation. String Yes n/a 1.0
username The username to use for ChangeSynergy access. Can include environmental variables to be replaced.
The ChangeSynergy username should be different from the one specified for the CM Synergy server. Ideally, you should specify a user with read-only permissions for ChangeSynergy. This will prevent someone from modifying objects through ChangeSynergy. If you specify an impersonation account with write permissions, a malicious user could bypass auditing in ChangeSynergy.
String No None 1.0


If you specify values for the optional properties Username> and Password, make sure that the user has read-only permissions within your ChangeSynergy lifecycle definition. This is necessary, since the Uri for each modification will allow anonymous access to ChangeSynergy, possibily exposing vulnerabilities for spoofing, tampering, repudiation, information disclosure, and/or escalation of priveledge.

That is, a STRIDE classification of "STRDE", with a possible DREAD rating as high as 10 if permissions are inappropriatedly assigned to the anonymous account.

If you do not specify a Username and Password, the end-user will be prompted to ChangeSynergy to login. However, the login screen will not correctly populate the database and role select inputs. This is due to a documented bug in ChangeSynergy 4.3 SP4. The bug case tracking number is 2067637; the change request is R21683.
