Configuring Authentication

By default, when you log in to the Web UI, authentication is performed using the built-in database model (authentication.bean=AuthenticationManager). You can reconfigure authentication to use an LDAP system.

Procedure

  1. Open the <SMSBUILDER_HOME>/conf/cfgbackup/service.webui.security.properties file.
  2. Set the value of authentication.bean to either:
    • AuthenticationManager – database authentication, database-role authorization, or
    • LdapAuthenticationManager – LDAP authentication, database-role authorization.
  3. If you set the value of authentication.bean to LdapAuthenticationManager:
    1. Add these lines to the file:
      username=admin
      pwd=brandldap
    2. Reconfigure the ldap.* properties to connect to the LDAP system provided by your enterprise IT administrator.
      ldap.host=localhost   
      ldap.port=389   
      ldap.userpath=uid={uid},ou=people,o=sybase365   
      ldap.security.authentication=SIMPLE 
  4. Stop and restart the server.
