Adding user password applications
Some web applications are configured for user name and password authentication only. Use this option if the application only supports user name and password authentication or if you don’t want to configure the application for SAML SSO at this time.
To add and configure a user password application in the Admin Portal
In Admin Portal, click Apps, then click Add Web Apps.
The Add Web Apps screen appears.
On the Search tab, enter the partial or full application name in the Search field and click the search icon.
- Next to the application, click Add.
In the Add Web App screen, click Yes to confirm.
Admin Portal adds the application.
Click Close to exit the Application Catalog.
The application that you just added opens to the Description page.
Note: The description of how to choose and download a signing certificate in this document might differ slightly from your experience. See Configuring Single Sign-On (SSO) for the latest information.
(Optional) On the Description page, you can change the name, description, and logo for the application. For some applications, the name cannot be modified.
(Optional) On the Policy page, specify additional authentication controls for this application.
- Click Add Rule.
The Authentication Rule window displays.
- Click Add Filter on the Authentication Rule window.
- Define the filter and condition using the drop-down boxes.
For example, you can create a rule that requires a specific authentication method when users access the Privileged Access Service from an IP address that is outside of your corporate IP range. Supported filters are:
The authentication factor is the computer’s IP address when the user logs in. This option requires that you have configured the IP address range in Settings, Network, Corporate IP Range.
The authentication factor is the cookie that is embedded in the current browser by the Privileged Access Service after the user has successfully logged in.
Day of Week
The authentication factor is the specific days of the week (Sunday through Saturday) when the user logs in.
The authentication factor is a date before or after which the user logs in that triggers the specified authentication requirement.
The authentication factor is a specific date range.
The authentication factor is a specific time range in hours and minutes.
The authentication factor is the device operating system.
The authentication factor is the browser used for opening the Privileged Access Service Admin Portal.
The authentication factor is the country based on the IP address of the user computer.
For the Day/Date/Time related conditions, you can choose between the user’s local time and Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) time.
- Click Add Rule.
- Click the Add button associated with the filter and condition.
- Select the profile you want applied if all filters/conditions are met in the Authentication Profile drop-down.
The authentication profile is where you define the authentication methods. If you have not created the necessary authentication profile, select the Add New Profile option. See Creating authentication profiles
- Click OK.
- (Optional) In the Default Profile (used if no conditions matched) drop-down, you can select a default profile to be applied if a user does not match any of the configured conditions.
If you have no authentication rules configured and you select Not Allowed in the Default Profile dropdown, users will not be able to log in to the service.
Note: If you left the Apps section of Admin Portal to specify additional authentication control, you will need to return to the Apps section before continuing by clicking Apps at the top of the page in Admin Portal.
On the Account Mapping page, configure how the login information is mapped to the application’s user accounts.
The options are as follows:
Use the following Directory Service field to supply the user name: Use this option if the user accounts are based on user attributes. For example, specify an Active Directory field such as mail or userPrincipalName or a similar field from Centrify Directory.
For Web - User Password applications, selecting this option allows an additional option to let Active Directory users log in using Active Directory credentials. Select the Use the login password supplied by the user (Active Directory users only) option for every Web - User Password application that you want users to log in to using Active Directory credentials.
- Everybody shares a single user name: Use this option if you want to share access to an account but not share the user name and password. For example, some people share an application developer account.
- Prompt the user for their user name: Use this option if you want users to supply their own user name and password. The first time a user launches the application, they enter their login credentials for that application. The Privileged Access Service stores the user name and password and the next time the user launches the application, the Privileged Access Service logs the user in automatically.
LoginUser.Username = LoginUser.Get('mail')+'.ad';
The above script instructs the Privileged Access Service to set the login user name to the user’s mail attribute value in Active Directory and add ‘.ad’ to the end. So, if the user’s mail attribute value is Adele.Darwin@acme.com then the Privileged Access Service uses Adele.Darwin@acme.com.ad. For more information about writing a script to map user accounts, see the User-password application scripting.
- (Optional) On the Advanced page, you can edit the script that provides the login information to the application. In most cases, you don’t need to edit this. For details, see the User-password application scripting.
- (Optional) On the Changelog page, you can see recent changes that have been made to the application settings, by date, user, and the type of change that was made.
(Optional) Click Workflow to set up a request and approval work flow for this application.
See Managing application access requests for more information.
- Click Save.
