    • system_schema keyspace
  • Cassandra 2.*
    • system.schema_aggregates
    • system.schema_columnfamilies
    • system.schema_columns
    • system.schema_functions
    • system.schema_keyspaces
    • system.schema_triggers
    • system.schema_usertypes

Default configuration (generated by Cassandra Workbench: Generate configuration):

// name must be unique!
[
    // AllowAllAuthenticator
    {
        "name": "Cluster AllowAllAuthenticator",
        "contactPoints": ["127.0.0.1"]
    },
    //PasswordAuthenticator
    {
        "name": "Cluster PasswordAuthenticator",
        "contactPoints": ["127.0.0.1"],
        "authProvider": {
            "class": "PasswordAuthenticator",
            "username": "yourUsername",
            "password": "yourPassword"
        }
    }
]
