Example One: %Service_Console (cont.)

In the third part of the example we set %Service_Console to use cascading authentication. Then we access Terminal.

Here are the steps:

  1. Click %Service_Console on the Services page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Services]) of the Management Portal.

  2. On the Edit Definition page for %Service_Console click Unauthenticated and Password and make sure that no other mechanism is selected.

  3. Click Save.

  4. Now launch Terminal. Click the InterSystems Launcher in your System Tray. Click Terminal from the menu.

  5. Terminal prompts you for a user name and then a password. At each prompt, press Enter without supplying any information. Caché provides you with access to Terminal anyway.

    Password:
    USER>
    
    Copy code to clipboard
  6. Execute the Write $UserName command at the prompt:

    
    USER>Write $UserName
    UnknownUser
    USER>     
    
    Copy code to clipboard

    You are accessing Terminal “unauthenticated” through the UnknownUser account. The authentication mechanism cascaded from Caché Login to Unauthenticated.

  7. Close Terminal. Click File—>Exit.
