Admin User Name

Admin User Name

The user name
admin
is a key user name for Dynamic Data Masking authentication. If you log in to the Management Console with the
admin
user name, Dynamic Data Masking uses the server password for authentication.
The
admin
user name supercedes the type of authentication configured for the Dynamic Data Masking. You can log in to the Management Console with the
admin
user name at any time. If you log in to the Management Console with the
admin
user name, Dynamic Data Masking authenticates based on the server password even if the Dynamic Data Masking is configured to use LDAP or Active Directory authentication.
When you log in as
admin
, Dynamic Data Masking uses internal authentication only for the session. It does not permanently change the authentication scheme configured for Dynamic Data Masking. When you log out, you can log back in with an LDAP or Active Directory user account.
If Dynamic Data Masking uses LDAP authentication and the configuration of the LDAP server or network changes, you might not be able to log in to the Management Console. You must update the LDAP server attributes in the Management Console for LDAP authentication to work properly. Log in to the Management Console with the
admin
user name and server password and update the attributes of the LDAP server. The next time you log in, you can use LDAP authentication.
