If you want to customize how users log into Web Port, you can adjust the login settings. This includes the ability to see their profile, change the language, and designate a particular group as mandatory for login. Additionally, you can choose if an Active Directory user will be created in Web Port during their first login. By default, users can log in with an HTML form and will be automatically logged out after 10 minutes.
The following login options are available:
|FORM||Login via HTML form (default)|
|BASIC||Login via Basic Authentication, requires Enable BASIC to be selected|
|NTLM||Login via NTLM, requires Enable NTLM to be selected|
It is also possible to use a type of login as a default and via URL control the login to another type. This is done according to the following URLs.
To use BASIC authentication, the Enable BASIC check box must be marked
To use NTLM, the Enable NTLM check box must be marked.
When NTLM is used, users defined in AD are used. Access to Web Port is then controlled by creating matching groups in AD and Web Port, and then permissions are indicated on each group in Web Port.
NTLM can advantageously be used for Single-Sign-On (SSO) since both client and server are connected to the same AD. Check the settings in the current Web browser so that it furthers information about logged in users to the web server.
There are also settings for API login to Web Port.
Token lifetime (days) indicates for how long a login token is valid.
Max API-tokens per user indicates how many concurrent API tokens a user can have.
If the number is exceeded, the oldest valid token will be removed.
It is possible to transmit username and password in the URL to log on to Web Port without needing to manually enter the credentials.
