User Management : Using the local authentication server
Using the local authentication server
You can use a local authentication server to authenticate destination server user logins.
Note: The local authentication server does not have user-initiated password management features, so it does not easily scale to large groups of users. For large deployments, we recommend you use RADIUS or LDAP and provide instructions on your website how users can reset, recover, or change their passwords.
Basic steps:
1. Add user accounts to the local authentication server.
2. Select the local authentication server configuration and username when you create user groups.
Before you begin:
