Choose user authentication method for Web App or Self Service Portal users.
NOTE: This page describes authentication methods for Alloy web applications (the Web App and Self Service Portal). For details about authentication methods for the API, see Authentication Method (for API).
Windows native authentication works only inside the same Windows domain network. Users will not need to enter their username and password to sign in to the Alloy web application because the system will automatically authenticate them with their current Windows credentials.
Standard authentication can be used in any network. Users will need to provide their username and password to sign in to the Alloy web application. Standard authentication method supports the following authentication types for Alloy web app users:
To enable Standard authentication, choose Standard Authentication and leave the Alloy password authentication check box selected. Users will sign in to the web app by providing their username and password.
Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication:
To enable SSO authentication, choose Standard Authentication and then select the desired SSO providers under Available Single Sign-On services. SSO services must be previously configured in the Settings App as "SSO Provider records." For details, see Managing single sign-on (SSO) providers.
To allow users to sign in without SSO, by providing their password, leave the Alloy password authentication check box selected.
To enable LDAP authentication, choose Standard Authentication. LDAP authentication requires that corresponding Domain Credentials records are configured in Alloy Navigator Express:
To enable LDAP for Web App users, set up Domain Credentials records in the Settings App. For details, see Managing Domain Credentials.
To enable LDAP authentication for Self Service Portal users, set up Domain Credentials records in the Settings App and optionally enable sign-in without SSP customer accounts. For details, see Managing Domain Credentials and Setting up LDAP Authentication for the SSP.
Users will sign in by providing their username (as
DOMAIN\username) and password.
