OpenIdConnect Authentication (Federated Authentication)

In this model, only user and group access rights are managed by WebMap; authentication is handled by a 3rd party. Windows Authentication and Forms security can still also be used simultaneously.

  • Windows Authentication when the WebMap server can directly access the domain controller.
  • Forms security when custom security is required or the domain controller cannot be reached.
  • Federated security when domain usernames and passwords are required, but WebMap is hosted remotely. Communication with the domain controller is through Identity Server.

See Microsoft Azure for more details on implementation.
