Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a SecureAuth IdP realm that uses Web Service (Multi-Data Store) as an additional Profile Provider.

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

1. Have on-premises data stores (Active Directory, SQL Server, ODBC, etc.)

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

1. In the Profile Provider Settings section, select True from the Same as Above dropdown to copy the data store integration from the Membership Connection Settings section for use in profile connection; or select False if that directory is only used for the membership connection.

2. Select Web Service (Multi-Datastore) from the Default Profile Provider dropdown if Web Service is to be used as the default profile provider

  • If another Web Service data store is configured in the Membership Connection Settings section, and True is selected from the Same as Above dropdown, then those settings appear in the Profile Connection Settings (below) and must be modified to reflect the settings of the new Web Service configuration
  • Only one Web Service configuration can be utilized for profile connection
  • If another directory is selected from the Default Profile Provider dropdown, then Web Service must be selected from Source dropdown in the Profile Fields section for the SecureAuth IdP Properties that are mapped to Web Service configuration fields

 

3. Select Web Service (Multi-Datastore) from the Data Store dropdown

4. Set the Webservice Username

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

5. Set the Webservice Password

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

6. Select True from the Failover dropdown if SecureAuth IdP is to respond in the event of a failure

7. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is successful

8. Click Add Realm from Local Server to use the Profile Connection Settings data store integration information from a realm on the same SecureAuth IdP appliance

Click Add Realm from Another Server to use the data store integration information from a realm on a different SecureAuth IdP appliance

9. Select the realms in which the necessary Profile Connection Settings data store integration is configured to be used for this realm's workflow, and click Add

10. Once realms are added, drag and drop the realms to create the order in which SecureAuth IdP will check for user information
