Basic Authentication ProviderΒΆ

The Basic Authentication Provider uses a user/group service for authentication. To configure the provider you have to specify a name for the provider, and choose one of the available user/group service.

We are going to configure a new Authentication provider, but first we need to create a new user/group service. Look at User/group service page to see how to create it. When you have the service configured, go on and:

  1. From the Welcome page click the Authentication link on the Menu Security section.

  2. Click Add new in the Authentication Providers menu

    • Insert testprovider in the Name text field.
    • Select testservice from User/Group service combo box.

  5. Select the testprovider element in the Available list of the Provider Chain menu

  6. Click the arrow right button to add the element to the Selected list

  7. Click the Save button.

Now, we have activated a new Authentication provider, having a new administrator user, named test. To verify it:

  1. Click the Logout button on the top right part of the page.
  2. Insert test in the Username and Password text fields on the top right part of the page.
  3. Click the Login button on the top right part of the page.

You should be now logged in with the test user, with administrative rights.
