To enable security, open the Proficy Portal Administration application, and select the Settings & Diagnostics button. Then, in the tree, select the Security node. After you select the node, the following list boxes appear:
Current authentication authority – shows you the authentication method that is currently in place. This field cannot be edited.
Current default domain – shows the current default domain for logins. If a login request is received without a domain name, this domain name will be used. This field cannot be edited.
Current security status – shows you whether security is currently enabled or disabled. This is field cannot be edited.
Proposed authentication authority – Allows you to choose the type of authentication to use. Your options are:
Local button – Allows you to select workgroup-based security when the Security Enabled check box is selected.
NOTE: If local security is enabled, you cannot log on to Proficy Portal by entering a domain name on the login dialog box.
Domain button – Allows you to select domain-based security when the Security Enabled check box is selected.
NOTE: If domain security is enabled, you must log on to Proficy Portal using either the local computer/server name or a valid domain name in the Domain field on the login dialog box. You cannot log on using a name and password.
The Proficy Portal server must be restarted after configuring this option.
Proposed default domain – Allows you to enter a default domain for logging into Proficy Portal. This option is only available if security is enabled in Proficy Portal. The Proficy Portal server must be restarted after configuring this option.
Proposed security status – Allows you to enable Proficy Portal security. If you do not want to use security, select disabled. The Proficy Portal server must be restarted after configuring this option.
NOTE: Security can be configured from any remote client, as well as on the local server.
