Authentication Tab

Settings on this tab allow you to enable and configure authentication settings for the component.

Option Description
Authentication Type Choose the authentication method to be used:
  • None — No authentication method will be used.
  • Windows — Select this option to prompt the user for their Windows user name, domain, and password. After you select this option, configure the Windows and User Info Lookup options.
  • Custom Script — Administrator defines prompts for authentication for a custom application. After you select this option, configure the Custom Script and options.
Windows Windows authentication authenticates users using their Windows domain user name. In the Domain box, specify the default domain for authenticating users.

Do not use the fully qualified Domain Name Server (DNS) domain name. Do not use top level domain qualifiers such as .com, .net or .org. For example, if the user is listed as mydomain/user1 or user1@mydomain.domain.com, then in a User Principal Name (UPN) format, the domain should be “mydomain” and NOT “mydomain.domain.com”.

Note: If the device is configured to use an Authentication Server with authentication type SMB, then the credentials provided will be used by workflow server. If the authentication type of the device is something other than SMB, then in addition to workflow server login screen, the device authentication screen is also displayed.
Custom Script When Custom is selected for Authentication Type, the administrator defines prompts that are displayed to the user. An event is sent to the server when a user logs in. The administrator must provide the .NET plug-in DLL that responds to the event.
  • Script File Path — This is the path to script that contains the code to respond to form and field events. You can click the browse button (...) to locate a Visual Basic Script (.vbs) file containing an existing script.
  • Edit Script Code — Click this button to create or edit a script. A sample custom script is available with this component. For details about the code editor window and the object model, click the Help button button in the code editor to refer to the Fuji Xerox AIP Scripting documentation.
  • Configure Prompts — Click this button to configure prompts that collect authentication information for users.
User Info Lookup Select the Use LDAP search to retrieve email check box to have the server look up the email address and other attributes of the authenticated user on a designated LDAP server. Click the Configure button to configure the LDAP settings in the LDAP Lookup Settings dialog box.
Note: When Windows authentication is selected as the Authentication Type, the email address is retrieved automatically as part of the authentication and as a result an LDAP search is not required if only the email address is needed.

For information about specifying the LDAP server settings, see LDAP Lookup Settings Dialog Box.
