About Creating a Database Login for Externally Authenticated Users

A database login must exist for all users who log in to Siebel Business Applications through an external authentication system. If you are implementing LDAP or ADSI security adapter authentication, then verify that this login name is present; if it does not exist, then create it. This database login must not be assigned to any individual user.

This task is a step in Process of Implementing LDAP or ADSI Security Adapter Authentication.

A database login is created for externally authenticated users during the Siebel installation process. If you are using an Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database, then the account is created when you run the grantusr.sql script. If you are using a DB2 database, then the database administrator manually creates this account. For additional information, see Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.

The default user ID of the database login account for externally authenticated users is LDAPUSER. A password is assigned to this database account when the account is created. A Siebel application user account corresponding to the LDAPUSER database account is not provided in the seed data and is not required.
