Authentication - Overview

Unless accessing SmartIQ anonymously, users are typically authenticated to verify their identity and apply authorization based on their groups, roles and permissions. The simplest authentication mode is Forms authentication, which is the recommended starting point for a new SmartIQ deployment.

In addition to these modes, SmartIQ has been integrated with a wide range of other authentication systems and technologies, including OpenID Connect, SAML 2.0, and more.



When changing authentication modes in an environment, it is recommended that you modify only SmartIQ Produce at first while you keep using Forms Authentication for Manage until you have verified that Produce is working with the new method.

If no Identity Extension has been added, it is assumed that the site wants Forms authentication and no additional configuration is needed.
