Enabling Smart Card Authentication

Dimensions supports ActiveIdentity Smart Card service providers. If Smart Card software is installed, you will be able to provide Smart Card authentication information when you open a Dimensions connection.

If the Smart Card software is installed to a different directory from the default location in Dimensions for Eclipse, you must set the correct path in Dimensions for Eclipse.

Also note that the Dimensions integration to Eclipse does not support multiple smart cards. If multiple card readers are enabled and more than one card is active, an error message displays when you attempt to log in.

To set the path to Smart Card software:

  1. Select Windows | Preferences.

  2. Select Team | Serena Dimensions, and enter the correct path in the Smart Card Library Path field.
