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.
|Authentication Type||Choose the authentication method to be used by the component.
|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 email@example.com in UPN format), the domain should be “mydomain”, not “mydomain.com”.
|NetWare||This authentication method prompts the user for a NetWare user name, password, 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.
|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
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.
