Authentication enabling in YugaByte DB

Can I enable authentication in an existing YugaByte DB database cluster (apps are using it without authentication) in such a way that I don’t affect the currently running apps?

Hi @divingdiana, this has more details on enabling authentication in YugaByte:

You will first need to change apps to use the default admin credentials of cassandra/cassandra (username/password) and then restart yb-tservers using --use_cassandra_authentication=true. Then once you have setup the necessary roles/users, you can modify your apps to start using those.
