No Authentication Type section in User Access Settings


#1

I dont’ see Authentication Type section in User Access Settings when trying to add new user. How to get Authentication Type section in User Access Settings? Thanks!

Remote Authentication isn’t a per user configuration setting. What you’ll need to do is configure remote authentication for the Extrahop as a whole.

Guides:
RADIUS
TACACS+
LDAP
SAML

Once you’ve configured one of these users can sign in with their remote auth credentials and an account will be created for them based on the settings configured during the remote auth setup.

You can’t actually pre-populate accounts for remote authentication, they simply get created during the first successful login. You’ll want to be careful about having local accounts with the same username as remote accounts, it can cause some unexpected behavior.

One slight correction here:

When the appliance’s remote authentication scheme is SAML, you do have the option to pre-populate user accounts.
