Configuring application user authentication

Each user account set up uses an authentication provider to facilitate user logon. By default, a pre-defined Application authentication provider is included. Multiple authentication types, including those using the Lightweight Directory Access (LDAP) protocol, are supported.

To configure application user authentication

  1. In the desktop System Settings module, under Actions, click Manage Providers.
  2. In the Manage Providers dialog box, click Add.
  3. In the Authentication Provider Name box, type a name.
  4. In the Authentication Type list, select Application.
  5. In the Server box, type the name of the server hosting the database and then in the Database Name box, type the database name.
  6. Click OK.
