Authentication Tab

Authentication requires MFP users to provide valid credentials to send documents to the workflow server. The authentication settings are configured for the server, and they can be enabled or disabled for any group of MFPs.

Option Description
Authentication Type Choose the authentication method to be used by the component.
  • None — No authentication method will be used.
  • Windows — Uses Windows authentication.
  • NetWare — Uses NetWare authentication.
  • Custom Script — The administrator has full control over the prompts presented to the user and validation of user entries.
Windows In the Domain box, enter the default domain used for Windows authentication.

Enter only the domain name without the top-level domain designator (.com, .net, or .org). For example, If the user is mydomain/user1 (or in UPN format), the domain should be “mydomain”, not “”.

NetWare This authentication method prompts the user for a NetWare user name, password, context and tree.
  • NDS Tree — Enter the default nDS tree.
  • NDS Context — Enter the default NDS context.
Custom Script 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 — Specifies the path to the VB.NET script that contains the code to authenticate the user. You can click the browse button (...) to locate the script file.
  • Edit Script Code — Click this button to open a script editor window with basic script code. For details on the script editor window and the object model used to authenticate users, click the help button in the script editor refer view the Kyocera MFP (HyPAS) Capture Component Scripting documentation.
  • Prompt — Click this button to open the Authentication Prompts window and configure the prompts that will be displayed to the user. For each prompt, configure the following fields:
    • Name — The name of the prompt.  This is also serves as the reference to the prompt.  It is used to access the collection of prompts in the script.
    • Display — The label that will be displayed on the MFP for the prompt.  If no label is given, the Name is used.
    • Default — The default value for the prompt.
    • (required) — Select this check box to make the entry mandatory for the prompt.
    • (masked) — Select this check box to mask the text that is entered for the prompt at the device panel should be masked for security.
User Info Lookup You can configure an LDAP search to retrieve additional information about the authenticated user, such as their email and full name. To enable this feature, select the Use an LDAP Search to retrieve additional user information check box. Click the Configure button to open the LDAP Lookup Settings dialog box to configure settings for the LDAP server.
Note: When "Windows" is selected as the Authentication Type, the email address is retrieved automatically as part of the authentication, so an LDAP search is not required if you only need the email address.
