Using Shared Accounts for Guest Users

SGD allows more than one user to log in using the same user name and password, for example to share an account for guest users.

You can only share accounts if you are using an authentication mechanism that uses a user profile in the local repository as the user profile.

Note Anonymous users are always treated as using a shared account.

To share a user profile:

  1. In the SGD Administration Console, click the User Profiles tab.
  2. Select the user profile that is to be shared. The General tab is displayed.
  3. For Login, select the Multiple check box.
  4. Click Save.

Guest users are never prompted for application server passwords. This means guest users cannot add or change password cache entries. Use the tarantella passcache command to manage application server passwords for guest users.
