Web Service (Multi-Data Store) configuration guide

Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a Web Service (Multi-Data Store)-integrated SecureAuth IdP realm.

Web Service enables SecureAuth IdP to access multiple data stores to extract the appropriate user information for authentication and assertion.


  • An on-premises data store (Active Directory, SQL Server, ODBC, etc.)

  • Service accounts with read access (and optional write access) for SecureAuth IdP for each data store

Data tab configuration

  1. In the SecureAuth IdP Classic Experience, go to the Data tab.

  2. In the Membership Connection Settings section, set Datastore Type to Web Service (Multi-Datastore).

  3. In the section, set the Username and Password.



    It is recommended that this be changed from the default to ensure security.

    The Webservice Username and Webservice Password must match on the Workflow tab of all member realms in the Multi-Datastore Membership Configuration.

  4. In the Failover Setting section, set Failover to True if SecureAuth IdP is to respond in the event of a failure. Otherwise leave as False.

    Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is successful.

  5. Save your changes.

Workflow tab configuration

  1. Go to the Workflow tab.

  2. In the FBA WebService section, set Enable FBA WebService to True.

  3. Set the FBA WebService UserName and FBA WebService Password to the same values as the Web Service Credentials username and password set in Step 3 of the previous section.

  4. Save your changes.
