One Identity Manager supports claims-based authentication as well as classical Windows authentication for logging on to the SharePoint server. The authentication mode to use is stored with the web applications and the user accounts. Usable authentication modes are maintained in the One Identity Manager database. The One Identity Manager supplies the default authentication systems "Windows (Claims)" (=claims-based Windows authentication) and "Windows Classic Mode" (=classic Window authentication). If you use other authentication systems in your SharePoint environment, add them separately in the One Identity Manager. This makes it possible to assign user accounts to authentication modes. Enter the user and group prefix data. This is required to add new SharePoint user accounts in the One Identity Manager.
To add an authentication mode
Enter the required data for your own authentication mode:
|System ID||A identifier for the authentication mode.|
|User prefix||Prefix for formatting a login name for new user accounts. The associated authentication object is not a group. This means, the user account option Group is not set.|
|Group prefix||Prefix for formatting a login name for new user accounts. The associated authentication object is a group. This means, the user account option Group is set.|
|Column for login name||Column in the table Person used to format the login name for new user accounts. This information is required if employees are linked to user accounts though automatic employee assignment.|
To assign your own authentication modes automatically to user accounts

Prefixes are URLs relative to a web application that can be stored under a site collection. Prefix properties such as relative path, absolute path and prefix type, are displayed on the overview form with the associated web application.

All the zones that you can configure for a web application are stored in the One Identity Manager database. You can see the alternative URLs that are configured for accessing the web application on the zone’s overview form.

Use site templates to add sites. If new sites are meant to be added with One Identity Manager, load the site template into the One Identity Manager database using synchronization. The languages in which site templates are available are displayed on the overview form.
