This document describes the internal UserID that Business Directory uses to login to the backend (metadb) repository.
Why is the UserID used by BD to login to the Postgres repository db different after v7.0.0?
Installs of Business Directory version 7.0.0 will contain a Postgres userid named "bd070001".
Installs of BD version 7.0.1 or later will contain a Postgres userid named “bdrepo”.
Why did this happen?
The style of userids such as "bd070001" was adopted from the legacy CIS manner of creating userids that contained a numerical nomenclature which was necessary in CIS version 6.2 and earlier when Mysql was utilized as the repository platform. The numerical style allowed us to increment the userid as needed if multiple installs existed on a single host.
However, CIS & BD v7 did not pose such a requirement due to the way we manage the individual installs on a single host. Thus the userid could constantly be “bdrepo” for any BD install.
This is a non-issue in most normal use cases. However you may notice the userid while troubleshooting some error messages when BD fails to boot or install successfully.
