Authentication Modes

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 defined for the web application and for 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

  1. Select | Basic configuration data | Authentication modesSharePoint.
  2. Click in the result list toolbar.
  3. Enter the required data on the master data form.
  4. Save the changes.

Enter the required data for your own authentication mode:

Table 9: Authentication modeClosed properties
Property Description
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.

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

  • In Designer, modify the template for the SPSUser.UID_SPSAuthSystem column.
