7.2.4 Authentication Tab

A Reflection X Advantage domain authenticates each user before granting access. You can use Reflection X Advantage Internal authentication, or you can leverage your in-place authentication and security infrastructure. Reflection X Advantage supports the following authentication methods:

  • Windows Domain (or Windows local) — the default when the Reflection X Advantage domain controller is installed on a Windows operating system

  • Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) — the default when the Reflection X Advantage domain controller is installed on a non-windows operating system

  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)

  • Reflection X Advantage Internal

Only one authentication mechanism can be configured and active for a domain at any given time.

Authentication system

Specifies the authentication system to use for the domain. The supported systems depend on your platform:

Windows: Windows (the default), Reflection X Advantage Internal, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

Linux: Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) (the default), Reflection X Advantage Internal, and LDAP.


Configure Reflection X Advantage for the authentication system you selected.

Test Authentication

Tests the user or administrative account.

Automatically create user account after successful logon

Specifies that all users who are in the authentication system are allowed access to the Reflection X Advantage domain. When a user logs on to the domain, his or her user account is added to the domain.

User Accounts

Displays all of the user accounts in the domain. For each account, this table displays the user name, the last logon, and whether the account has Administrator permissions. (It also allows you to set or remove administrator permissions for an account.)

NOTE:If you configure multiple domain administrators, each administrator can view and edit all definitions, whether or not the owner has made them public.
