User Authentication

User Authentication

When you run the installer, you can choose the authentication to use for the domain.
The Informatica domain can use the following types of authentication to authenticate users in the domain:
  • Native. Native user accounts are stored in the domain and can only be used within the domain. Native authentication is default.
  • LDAP. LDAP user accounts are stored in an LDAP directory service and are shared by applications within the enterprise. You can configure LDAP authentication after you run the installer.
  • SAML. You can configure Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) authentication for the Administrator tool, the Analyst tool, and the Monitoring tool. You can configure SAML authentication after you run the installer.
You need to plan the type of authentication that you want to use in the domain.
