When logging on to Vantage, users are authenticated, meaning their identity is verified and checked against a list of approved users. Users are authenticated by Vantage or authenticated externally.

Vantage Authentication Authentication by Vantage requires that the user and its privileges are defined in the database.
External Authentication

External authentication allows Vantage users to be authenticated by an agent running on the same network as Vantage and its clients.

Vantage supports the following external authentication logon types:
  • Single sign-on (SSO)
  • Directory sign-on (authentication by the directory server)
  • Sign-on As (user logs on to Vantage with credentials the client also recognizes)
