The authentication setting you choose depends on the identity provider (IdP) your organization uses. In NI applications that use NI Web Server, such as SystemLink, create your role mappings using this same authentication method.

Use the following table to choose between settings on the Authentication tab. You can use multiple settings at the same time.
Use Case Setting
Only one user, the admin, will access the web server. Log in as users controlled by the web server
Multiple users will access the web server with their existing credentials, identity, and access levels in your organization. Log in as users controlled by the web server

You will also need to edit a configuration file on the server machine. Refer to the SystemLink single sign-on help for information about how to edit this file.

Multiple users defined on the server machine will access the web server locally or remotely. Log in using Windows accounts »Restrict to local users defined on the server machine
Multiple users will access the web server locally or remotely. You want to grant access to users in all the domains the server machine trusts. Log in using Windows accounts »Allow all local and Active Directory users
Multiple users on different machines in one domain will access the web server. Log in using Windows accounts»Restrict to users in a single Active Directory domain
Multiple users in one or more domains will access the web server. Your IT administrator has set up an LDAP URL (for example: ldap://server.example.com). Connect to an LDAP Server
