Authentication Tab

How do I get to this dialog box?

From the Administrative Console

  • Click the Authentication side tab.

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

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

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

  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)

  • Reflection X Internal

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

Setting Description
Authentication system Specifies the authentication system to use for the domain. The supported systems depend on your platform:
Windows: Windows (the default), Reflection X Internal, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
Linux: Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) (the default), Reflection X Internal, and LDAP.
Configure Configure Reflection X 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 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.
