The directory authenticates directory users with a user names that match a Vantage username to log on to the database and inherit the privileges of the matching database user.

This option is useful when:

  • Site security policy requires directory authentication
  • All or most of the directory users who need to access the database already have matching users defined in the database
  • The benefits gained from also authorizing user privileges in the directory is not worth the additional setup effort
