Enabling RBAC for JBoss EAP

Using JBoss EAP for deploying, managing, and creating Java applications means that a variety of users will need access to JBoss's services and consoles. While JBoss EAP itself provides a simple user script, this often leaves too many security concerns open. Instead, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) can be used to fine-tune access for JBoss EAP itself and any supported applications.
