Authentication tab

In this tab you can set up the authentication parameters.

Option Description
Authentication Type

Select the authentication method you want to use.  The following options are:

  • Standard — Two options are available:
    • Windows bind (selected by default) — If authentication is within the same domain, the Server or LDAP path can be left blank.
      • Fast Bind — If disabled, the Active Directory Server returns all the user attributes to the workflow server.
      • Server Bind — If disabled, the Active Directory Server tries to connect to DNS server to resolve the IP address of the workflow server.
      • Use SSL — If disabled, the connection between LDAP and Workflow server is not encrypted. To use SSL option you must have a server certificate for the ADAM service . If verifying against another domain, enter the server name and port number (that is, LDAP://server name,5001). Click Test to verify that the user name created on the server authenticates successfully.
    • Simple bind — Enter the Server or LDAP path (that is, LDAP://server name,5000)
      • Fast Bind — If disabled, the Active Directory Server returns all the user attributes to the workflow server.
      • Server Bind — If disabled, the Active Directory Server tries to connect to DNS server to resolve the IP address of the workflow server.
      • Use SSL — If disabled, the connection between LDAP and Workflow server is not encrypted. To use SSL option you must have a server certificate for the ADAM service . If verifying against another domain, enter the server name and port number (such as, LDAP://server name,5001).

      Refer to Binding to an LDAP Server in the MSDN Library to learn about setting the LDAP Bind options.

Netware This will prompt the user for their NDS context and tree.
  • NDS Tree — Enter the NetWare Directory Services tree name.
  • NDS Context — Enter the NDS context name.
Note: If the device is configured to use an Authentication Server with the authentication type being NDS, then the credentials provided will be used by workflow server. If the Authentication Type of the device is other than NDS, then in addition to workflow server login screen, the device’s authentication screen is also displayed.
Custom The administrator has full control over the prompts that will be presented to the user as well as how the prompts are validated.
Snap-in path Path to the compiled snap-in (.net assembly) that contains the custom authentication code. If you have an existing snap-in you want to use, you can browse for it using the ellipsis button next to the Snap-in path box.
Create/Edit Snap-in You can also click the Create/Edit Snap-in button to open a code editor window with basic snap-in code. For details of the code editor window and the object model, please refer to the Fujitsu Capture Component Snap-in documentation  by clicking Help in the code editor window.

A sample custom script is available with this component.

Source Path Path to the source code of the snap-in. This path is used by code editor to compile the snap-in only during design time.
Use LDAP search to retrieve email Select this check box to look up the email address and other attributes for the authenticated user.
Note: When windows authentication is selected, 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.

To Configure the LDAP server, enter the following information:

  • Search Root — Enter the search root folder you want to begin searching against. If this field is left blank, the search starts at the LDAP default directory.
  • Authentication — Select the required authentication type and provide the user credentials.
  • Directory Search — Search the entries in the address book directory services database.
  • Test Look-up — To test the search settings, enter a sample user name in the Username box and click Test.
