PegaDiagnosticUser

Hi,

In Dev Studio, there is an interface where developer can download a log file from - System > Operations > Logs.

When text or zip link is clicked, username and password are required (below little authentication screen pops up).

Developer tried Pega credentials (ie. administrator@pega.com), but it did't take it. Then I tried Tomcat credentials that are specified in "tomcat-users.xml" (In below case, "admin" / "admin"), and it worked. For experimental purposes, when I removed PegaDiagnosticUser role from below settings, it stopped working.

Question:

#1. This authentication pop up expects Tomcat credentials that has a "PegaDiagnosticUser" role, not Pega credentials. Is my assumption correct?

#2. If so, how are developers supposed to know Tomcat credentials? Isn't it that they should NOT know it, from security perspectives?

#3. Is it possible to change the settings to take Pega credentials, instead of Tomcat credentials?

Thanks,
