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.
|Standard Authentication||In the Server or LDAP Path box, enter the Active
Directory server name or IP address or the LDAP path for authentication.
Two types of bind are available:
For either bind, you can configure the following options:
Refer to the Microsoft web site for information about setting the LDAP Bind options.
|NetWare||This authentication method prompts the user for a NetWare user name, password, context
|Plug-in Authentication||The administrator defines prompts that are displayed to the user.
|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 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.
For more information, see LDAP
Note: When "Standard" 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.
|Test Lookup||To test the search settings, enter a sample user name in the Username box and click the Test button.|
