Authentication Module Instances

Multiple authentication module instances can be crated for the realm, based on the default authentication modules. You can add individually configured multiple instances of the same authentication module.

ProcedureTo Create a New Authentication Module Instance

  1. Click the name of the realm for which you wish to add a new authentication module instance.

  2. Select the Authentication tab.

    Note –

    The Administrator Authentication Configuration button defines the authentication service for administrators only. This attribute can be used if the authentication module for administrators needs to be different from the module for end users. The modules configured in this attribute are picked up when the Access Manager console is accessed.

  3. Click New in the Module Instances list.

  4. Enter a Name for the authentication module instance. The names must be unique.

  5. Select the Type of authentication module type for the realm.

  6. Click Create.

  7. Click the name of the newly created module instance and edit the properties for that module. See the Authentication section in the online help for definitions for the properties for each module type.

  8. Repeat these steps to add multiple module instances.
