Domain Authenticated ALM, How to add a New Local user

Jump to solution

Our ALM is setup to authenticate with AD which works great but...

We want to add a single user to ALM that is not an AD account and give it read only access so we can use it for pulling reports. 

I tried, but it's telling me that the Domain Authentication field must be filled out.  Is there something I can do to create a Local account?

 

Thanks,

Mike

The ALM system does not support mixed authentication methods.

When it is set to use LDAP, all user accounts are authenticated against LDAP and no user passwords are stored in ALM.

Otherwise, it authenticates against its own user database and all passwords are stored therein.

You can't have both.

 

In my environment, we have created Service Accounts in Active Directory for this sort of task. The Service Accounts don't have access to many resources that a live employee has, but this allows us to have "read-only" logins for systems that authenticate against AD, like the ALM system.
