InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

There are two steps for specifying the authentication mechanisms used by a Caché Service:

  1. Use the Authentication Options page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [System Security] > [Authentication/CSP Session Options]) of the Management portal to edit the system wide security authentication options. Click the authentications mechanisms that you want enabled system wide and then click Save. Here is the Authentication Options page:
    At this stage do not uncheck Allow Unauthenticated Access if you have installed Caché with minimal security. You might find yourself locked out. With this initial security setting, many services are configured to support only unauthenticated access.
  2. Edit the definition for the particular Caché Service. For Local and Client Server open the Services page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Services]) of the Management Portal. For Web Applications, use the Web Applications page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Applications] > [Web Applications]) of the Management Portal. Click the link for the relevant CSP application.
    Here is a page for editing a Local or Client Server service definition. In this case it is the %Service_Console service. Notice that it allows you to both enable or disable the service and select the authentication option(s).
    Here is a page for editing a CSP service definition. In this case it is the service governing the /csp/user application. Again, you can both enable or disable the service as well as select the authentication options.
