System administrators can configure two types of authentication on the Server: Form-Based and Windows Single Sign-On (SSO).
- Form-Based authentication uses a form to prompt the user to enter a username and password each time they log into the Server. This information is specific to the Server. User accounts must be created by the system administrator. Refer to Creating And Managing User Accounts for more information.
- SSO authentication allows the user to sign in one time with a username and password that is used by multiple applications (the Server, email, network, etc). Multiple authentication methods can be used to provide SSO.
System administrators can configure, edit and turn on or off authentication methods. At least one authentication method must be turned on, but several can be on at the same time. Only one form-based authentication method exists and is automatically created on the Server; however, multiple SSO authentication methods can be configured.
The available authentication methods are based on your subscription options.
- Query String
- EPIC OAuth
System administrators can also add authentication methods to context-sensitive help connections. Refer to Managing Connection Profiles to the Server for more information. If no authentication method is assigned, users will be prompted to select an authentication method during the context-sensitive help request to the Server.
