If you have WebFOCUS MR/CUS configured for external security, also known as AKA Realm security, you would typically have the default pmfadmin user ID set up within your security system of record when installing PMF. That user ID would be attached to the MR administrator group, which is linked to the Performance Management Framework MR Domain as the default group of PMF administrators. This enables you to log in to PMF and perform basic functions to complete setup of PMF at your site.
However, if you are unwilling to set up the pmfadmin user as advised in your security system of record, you will not be able to log in to PMF and perform activities such as “bootstrap” the system to set up other users.
In this situation you can use the FOCEXEC procedural code, shown below, to set up a bootstrap user. You will need to run this procedure from within the MR environment and be logged in as a valid administrator there.
Note: As of PMF 5.2.3, this code is included with PMF in the procedure/apps/pmfdata/pmf_bootstrap_user.fex.
