Authentication SettingsPermanent link for this heading

This chapter contains the supported authentication modes and their respective prerequisites.

Anonymous Authentication

When testing a Fabasoft Cloud installation, the user is authenticated by the IDP (identity provider), which is accessed anonymously.

Basic Authentication

Basic authentication is used for logging on with different users via a log-in dialog. Fabasoft app.test fills in the specified username and password automatically.

Basic authentication has to be activated on the server running the web services.

To connect to the web service using basic authentication you have to activate basic authentication on the server.

For configuring Microsoft Internet Information Services, proceed as follows:

  1. Navigate to the web site containing the virtual directory in your "Computer Management" ("Computer Management" > "Services and Applications" > "Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager" > "Web Sites" > "<web site containing the virtual directory>").
  2. In the "Properties" of this site you need to enable basic authentication in the "Directory Security" tab in the Authentication and access control area. Click the "Edit" button to define the basic authentication method.
  3. A dialog box opens were you can define the basic authentication method. Select the Basic authentication (password is sent in clear text) check box and click "OK".
  4. A dialog box appears, where you have to acknowledge enabling basic authentication. If you click "Yes", basic authentication is used.
