FAQ 245: change the User-Authentication schema from the TRADITIONAL met

0 Likes

"PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
How do I change the User-Authentication schema from the TRADITIONAL method to the ACCUREV LOGIN method?

SOLUTION:
When you install AccuRev on the machine where the AccuRev Server process will run, the installation wizard prompts you to choose the authentication scheme: Traditional or AccuRev login.

If after installation you desire to change the security method you can switch schemes with the following command:

To change to the new AccuRev login method:

accurev authmethod accurev_login

To change to the traditional method (pre 4.5):

accurev authmethod traditional

Each one of these changes will set the preferences.xml file found in your site_slice directory with one of the following variables:

For the new AccuRev login method:

<preferences>
<authmethod>accurev_login</authmethod>
</preferences>

For the traditional method:

<preferences>
<authmethod>accurev</authmethod>
</preferences>

This change takes affect immediately, so insure you environment is prepared for the new method.
