NOTE: By default, no user is included in the "manager-gui" role required
to operate the "/manager/html" web application. If you wish to use this app,
you must define such a user - the username and password are arbitrary. It is

NOTE: The sample user and role entries below are intended for use with the
examples web application. They are wrapped in a comment and thus are ignored
when reading this file. If you wish to configure these users for use with the
examples web application, do not forget to remove the <!.. ..> that surrounds
them. You will also need to set the passwords to something appropriate.
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="<must-be-changed>" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="<must-be-changed>" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="<must-be-changed>" roles="role1"/>


The same you update with the username and password you want for manager-gui role in tomcat-users.xml file under conf folder:


This below block sets the username: root, password: root for apache tomcat manager gui.


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<role rolename="manager-gui"/>
<user username="root" password="root" roles="manager-gui"/>

Now you will be able to access http://localhost:8080/manager/html with username:root and password:root
