Enable changing default credentials in RBAC-database configuration

When using LSF Explorer with Role Based Access Control (RBAC) it is required to setup an additional database.
The default username/password combination is pacuser:pacuser. It is stored as a hashed value under lsfsuite/ext/explorer/server/rbac/datasource.xml. Unlike for other LSF addon products (also like the LSF Explorer Server itself and the data collectors) there is no tool existing to change that default configuration in the file.

So the feature we request is a tool to be able to change to above mentioned configuration file for the connection to the RBAC database for the use with different credentials (password and username) than the default ones.

    There is an internal tool for updating these credentials. It is currently being reviewed and will be made available to you as a patch.
