Authentication modes

Top  Previous  Next

Authentication modes in z/Scope Anywhere include Active Directory, OAuth/2 (Google, Facebook, etc), and customizing the authentication process using a DLL. They are not mutually exclusive, you can enable more than one at the same time.


Active Directory


Users can always authenticate with their Active Directory accounts, as long as their credentials are registered in the Active Directory where z/Scope Server is deployed.

This Active Directory integration is configured automatically in z/Scope Anywhere and there is no need to configure any setting to make it work.


Desktop Mode

If you have selected 'Desktop mode' during the installation, the application will automatically authenticate using the active desktop logged in user.

On this mode, there will be only one set of personal preferences and any user who connects to this z/Scope installation will share the same personal settings.


Server Mode

If 'Server mode' was selected during the installation, the browser will always ask for new credentials.

This mode allows each user to have their personal preferences saved separately on the server. That way, users can connect to z/Scope Anywhere from many different places and have the environment whenever they go.


Other Logins


Other kind of authentications require the system administrator to configure a few settings on z/Scope Anywhere.
